We are excited to watch the children soar this term and look forward to lots of new learning in all our lessons!
We will be maintaining the pace in Mathematics and English, with consolidation of many skills we have started to learn, especially formal written methods in addition, subtraction and multiplication. The importance of Times Tables still stands with emphasis on the 3, 4 and 8 times table.
In our Science lessons, we will be studying ‘Rocks and Soils’ and have lots of interesting practical lessons planned!
Our thematic topic this term is entitled “Invaders and Traders” which we have kick started with an Inspiration Day starting in Italy! We will be exploring how different Invaders affected Great Britain geographically and historically. We will also have lots of activities to do with D&T, Art, Music and Computing.
Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times; the children's PE day is Thursday.
Please continue to support your child’s reading at home as much as possible. We remind you that your child’s book needs to be in school every day and one reading journal activity needs to be completed weekly. We would also encourage you to write a comment in their home/school diary, building their confidence and the link between home and school.
Your child will continue to have their purple homework books to develop their creative skills as well consolidating their learning in the classroom at home.
We have had a lovely day raising money for this worthwhile cause. With your help we raised £250.00 for the charity. Thank you very much for your kind donations.
In English, the children were reading a book called 'Spaghetti and Meat balls for all'. In the story, the characters made food for a large group of people and hosted a dinner party. We decided to give the children an opportunity to experience making their very own vegetarian spaghetti dish and having a dinner party.
The children had a fantastic time! They peeled, chopped and grated tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, carrots and peppers in order to make a tomato sauce for our meal. We added garlic into our sauce too!
Then the children watched and listened as the teachers began heating the vegetables and turning it into a sauce. The children estimated how much salt would be needed in the sauce.
We then boiled the spaghetti in water, added a little salt and oil.
After the food was made and mixed together, the children learnt how to fold their napkins. Then, we had a dinner party with relaxing music as we ate our delicious spaghetti!
September 2018 - Stone Age Day
The children had a wonderful time. They learnt many interesting facts about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age which will help with our understanding for our history topic this term. Today, we learnt fow to make felt from wool, looked at fascinating artefacts from both the Stone Age and Iron Age period, and wove wool to make bracelets.
