Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope you all had a fantastic summer break and all the children are feeling refreshed and ready for a hardworking and fun term.
Firstly I would like to congratulate the children on some fantastic homework about the settlement of Hathersage and the Underwood
As part of our class topic we will be studying the settlements of Hathersage, Underwood and Eyam. This will include history work about Eyam and the plague during 1665.
Some of the mathematics areas to be covered during this half term will be number bonds, addition and subtraction, place value, multiplication and division, time and fractions. We will also be doing some interesting maths investigations to challenge and make the children think.
We will be making strong links with our Geography and History work and the text types we will be focussing on will be recounts, diaries, information text, poetry and explanatory text.
Please could you make sure that P.E. kits are brought to school on Monday of each week and that all P.E. clothing is named. This half term we will be focussing on Hockey and Athletics.
During science lessons we will be learning about materials and finding out about solids, liquids and gases. This will include a number of exciting investigations.
In R.E. we are going to be writing prayers for the class book and preparing for the Harvest Festival. We will also be looking at the Hindu Festival of light Diwali.
We are going to be creating some amazing video games and investigate hardware.
In art lessons we are going to sketch and create some interesting multimedia pictures of Hathersage. During our visit to Hathersage we will explore and create art work in the style of Andy Goldsworthy.
We will be learning some new songs and writing songs about Hathersage. We will perform these at the Harvest festival and the Hathersage assembly.
During French lessons we will be learning language linked to school
