Successful Seals

Welcome to the Successful Seals!

 

The seals are always working so hard, every minute of the day! They are a class of superstars, who are all delightful!

 

We have enjoyed our Friday Fun reward three times. Well done Seals!

Star of the Week:

 

Maddie!

For a huge improvement in attitude and effort to her learning!

Our current whole class aims:

 

Reading:  We love reading in Year 5. We are 'Reading to Red' to achieve a sticker at the end of every week, but we must read at least three times, although the more times, the better! We are doing very well at the moment, lots of people achieved their ten stickers this week!

 

We are developing shared reading strategies.

 

We are focusing on the following strategies (try these at home too!) 

  • making pictures in our heads
  • listening to someone read 
  • asking questions when we don't understand (clarify)
  • summarising (first, next, then)
  • predicting using the text
  • inferring using the text 

 

We are becoming more confident every day!

We have also been looking at history in our local area, through researching the local plague village of Eyam, Derbyshire.
