Spellings are given out on a Thursday and are to be tested the Thursday after. Children will have an opportunity to learn these in class but it would be beneficial if your child could revise these during the week and write them out on their test sheet which will go home.
Please ensure that your child is reading their home reading book at least three times per week. Your child needs to return their reading record book at least once per week so that staff can check their progress. Children can bring their reading book in any day once they have finished it to get it changed.
Children will be visiting the library on Friday morning. We are excited to have an interesting range of books and we hope that your children will enjoy reading these at home.
P.E is on a Friday afternoon. Please ensure your child brings the correct kit. It should consist of a black pair of shorts, a plain white t - shirt and black pumps. When the weather gets colder, children can wear jogging bottoms.
This term we will be focusing on descriptive writing, basing our work on what life would be like on another planet. We can't wait to share some of excellent pieces of writing with you on this very page.
This half-term in maths we will be focusing on developing our fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. We will be looking at place value, addition and subtraction - consolidating our knowledge and building upon it. We will also be having fun with decimals and fractions.
Our topic work this term will focus on the question 'Could we live on another planet?' We will be researching famous astronomers, finding out all about the space race of the 20th century and looking at what space travel could be like in the future.
Our science topic this half-term is Earth and Space. This will fit in nicely alongside our topic work. We will be looking at how gravity and resistance work.
