Our week in school and things to remember:


PE – we suggest that the children keep their PE kits in school at all times as sports day is coming soon.

Friday– Reading and spelling books should be brought back ready to change each Friday. The children will be taking home spellings on each Friday to practise throughout the week. They will then be tested on these on the following Friday morning. Occasionally we will be sending times table practice home as well. These are always out of 50 and if the children can independently and consistently achieve higher than 45 in class on a Monday morning then they progress up a level.


What are we learning about this term?


Our topic for this term is based around the novel The Accidental Pirates – Voyage to Magical North by Claire Fayers. This is an adventure book based on pirates, discovery and magic. It allows a number of science, maths, literacy, art and ICT aspects of the curriculum to be discovered. The children are very much involved in the planning of the topic and have already suggested a number of interesting questions we can research and tasks that we can complete.


In Science we are focussing on water habitats and organisms and we will hopefully be able to research some of this locally. PE will be focussed on getting ready for sports day if the weather allows.


Homework- Homework will be sent out on a less frequent basis but with a number of tasks to complete over a period of time. These will be linked to our topic and any other subjects we are learning about in class
