Keep an eye out on our Dojo pages for regular updates of goings-on in class and in school.
Homework is given out every Friday and is collected the following Friday. This homework is generally linked to topics the children have been learning in school. Each week children get Numeracy, Literacy and Spelling; along with this, children are expected to read every night and learn their times tables every night.
Children have P.E. on a Monday and Thursday afternoon. Their kits are expected to be in school on those days. P.E. kits should consist of: shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms, t-shirt and appropriate footwear eg. trainers or pumps.
In English this term we will be studying the author Michael Foreman and looking at a number of his books including, 'Fox Tale', 'Cat on the Hill', 'Seal Surfer', 'Sandhorse' and 'War Game'. We will be focusing on writing diary entries, letters and story predictions based on those books. Later in the term we will move onto poetry studying Pie Corbett and Valerie Bloom poems with children composing, reciting and performing their own poetry in those styles!
In Maths this term we are learning all about number and place value which includes roman numerals and negative numbers. We will then move onto calculating using our four number operations. Along with this children are asked to continue practising their times tables both at home and at school.
Children can practise their times tables at home using Times Tables Rockstars which they are familiar with.
In our religion lessons this term we have been looking at ourselves and why we are all special in our own way. We will also look at the Creation Story. Children will be having Wednesday Word sessions with Fr. Denneny and regular Collective Worship sessions both in class and in assemblies.
