Time is flying by, it only seems like five minutes since I was welcoming the children to 5M and here we are already into our second month. All the children are now settled into their new class routines and are fully aware of the high learning and behaviour expectations required of them.
A continuing focus for this year is developing the children's comprehension skills across all genres (fiction, non-fiction, play scripts, explanation, poetry and instruction texts). Each week in our guided reading sessions the children spend time answering questions and discussing what we have read.
We are enjoying our focus novel The London Eye Mystery. All the children are completely engrossed in the plot and are keen to see how the mystery at the centre of the novel is resolved. At the end of this month the children will be attempting an extended piece of writing detailing the events in the plot from the point of view of one of the main characters. I am looking forward to reading them one they are done.
Thank you for your support, it has helped get this school year off to a great start.
