This page is dedicated to all the exciting things we will be doing this year.
Dear Pupils, Parents and Guardians,
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a well-deserved rest over the Christmas period. Last term we boarded the HMS Titanic and learnt everything there is to know about the doomed liner. Not only that but we explored the human digestive system, the country of South America, short multiplication, short division, pilgrimage and gymnastics. I was blown away by the amazing variety of models and posters produced by the children for their homework.
This term pupils will be transported back to Rome during our literacy and history lessons, learning about the daily life and history of the Romans. Pupils will have had an introduction to their new topic, during their wow day, where we transformed into Romans.
During Mathematics the focus will turn to learning the formal methods of long multiplication and division. Pupils will then learn how to relate this knowledge to a variety of reasoning and problem solving questions. As well as this, opportunities at home for reading with your child is highly recommended and spelling practice for our weekly tests.
Within Science, the children will be learning about states of matter and how these changes occur. The concept of the three states of matter will be covered, along with learning how materials can be changed from one state to another by heating and cooling. During Geography the class will be looking at Italy, including the customs, major cities and events that occur There.
PE will now be on a Thursday afternoon and a Friday morning with myself and Mr Hayes, so full kits will be needed on these days. This term during my PE lessons, Hawks class will be focusing on Paralympic games, so children with earrings need to remove them prior to PE due to health and safety.
A homework grid will be handed out alongside this letter containing a variety of activities to be completed. Each task will be worth house points and it is up to you and your child how many you complete over the forthcoming weeks. Tasks can either be handed in weekly or as a whole at the end of the term. If the piece chosen needs to be in written form please record this in the provided homework books.
If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I am at the door most days after school or if not please leave a message at the office or a note with your child to give to me.
