Dear Parents and Carers,
We hope you all had a fantastic half term break and all the children are feeling refreshed and ready for a hardworking and fun half term.
The children took some fantastic photographs of British Wild Animals. Spelling sentences and mathematics homework will continue to be handed out on Friday and needs to be handed in for Wednesday.
In English we will be focussing on the Roman story Across the Roman Wall by Theresa Breslin. We will also look at poetry. Many of the children continue to work hard with their reading at home.
Arithmetic Maths tests will continue to be on Friday and tables tests on Thursday. We will be covering maths topics of properties of 3 d shapes, time, problem solving and reasoning, Maths homework will continue to be given out on Fridays and needs to be returned for the following Wednesday.
It’s great to see so many of the children using purple mash at home. We will be learning about data bases this half term and presenting work to different audiences.
In science we will be looking at the digestive system and teeth. Also we will be looking at animals in the local area and how the environment can affect the way they live. To reinforce the science work we have learnt this year we will be visiting Magna on Monday 11th June
During design technology, we will be researching bread and making some of our very own.
We will also be learning how to play kwik cricket and will be doing athletics. We are looking forward to another exciting term.
I would like to congratulate the children who have worked so hard last term during intervention groups. Intervention groups will continue and Mrs Ball will lead the groups.
This term, we will continue to focus on reading. A number of children last half term successfully achieved 10 book worm tokens and had the opportunity to choose their own book. There are further children who are very close to 10 bookworm tokens.
Kind regard Mr Wise
