How you can support your child in their writing this half-term
We are basing our learning on the book, Shackleton's Journey. With the children, you could look on the internet to find out all about Shackleton and his amazing mission. The children will be writing a recount in the form of a diary. They could keep their own diary at home. Within school, the children will use a check-list to ensure that they have included the correct writing features, these are linked to the picture below:
We are now focusing on the four operations (addition, subtraction, division and multiplication). To help your child, you could practise these operations both in written form and mental calculations. In particular,practising long multiplication and long division.
Please can your child read on a daily basis at home. Don't limit their reading to the home-school books, this can be anything, such as: books, magazines, recipes, posters etc. Talk about what they have read, asking them questions or get the children to tell you all about what they have read.
