Reading books should be brought into school each day and a record of any home reading recorded in the reading diary. This does not need to be restricted to their school reading book and many children will now be moving off the reading scheme onto 'free reading'.  All children are encouraged to read widely and develop a love of reading. Here is a small selection of suggested, age appropriate texts.

Spellings will be sent home every week to practise.  Children will be tested on their spellings on a Friday morning

ROALD DAHL AFTERNOON

MONDAY 14th SEPTEMBER

 

On Monday afternoon, Year 5 participated in a virtual Roald Dahl day activity via Zoom. This was organised by Doncaster Stories, a fabulous project which is working hard to further engage children with reading. It involved a fun, interactive Roald Dahl themed quiz, drawing and poetry. Two other classes from Doncaster schools participated and we won lots of Roald Dahl books for our school! Thank you to Doncaster Stories for inviting us to take part.

 

IMAGINE A DAY POETRY

 

We had a fantastic first day back in school yesterday and it was so lovely to see everyone. We used a beautiful book called 'Imagine a Day' to write a poem - all about the power of our wonderful imaginations. Everyone worked hard and did their very best.  There were some incredible ideas and amazing language! Here is a small selection.
