This page is dedicated to all the exciting things we will be doing this year.
Dear Pupils, Parents and Guardians,
Welcome back! I hope you have all had a well-deserved rest during half term. Last term was jam packed with a variety of different activities ranging from learning about the different seas and continents, to sampling authentic WW2 dishes. I would like to say a big thank you for the support you have shown providing food and helping with the fantastic models produced for the homework tasks during our WW2 topic.
This term will again be fun packed with pupils boarding the HMS Titanic during our History and Literacy lessons, learning everything there is to know about this grand ship and its unfortunate end. Pupils will be working on producing Diary entries, newspaper articles, story boards and timelines, amongst a whole host of other exciting work.
During Mathematics the focus will turn to measurement, including length and perimeter, and multiplication and division. It is vital that pupils are confident with their times tables up to 12 × 12, so any practice at home would be fantastic. As well as this, opportunities at home for reading with your child is highly recommended and spelling practice for our weekly tests.
Within Science and Geography pupils will be travelling all over the world studying countries and their geographical features, along with the animals that inhabit these spaces.
PE will remain on a Wednesday and a Thursday (with team theme), so full kits will be needed on these days. This term during my PE lessons, Hawks class will be focusing on Gymnastics, 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.
