After a very successful Pop-up museum looking at ancient civilisations, we turn the clock back millions of years for our new challenge—’Dinosaur Stomp’.
We look forward to creatively bringing dinosaurs back to life —more details will follow as we work our way through this exciting learning activity.
In science, we shall be continuing to learn all about plants
English – We will be covering a range of text types including recounts , poetry and play scripts. While doing this, we will be improving our spelling strategies, sentence writing and handwriting.
Maths – This half term, we will be learning mainly about fractions and time, as well as regular arithmetic activities. Continued support with your child learning their 2, 5, 10, 3 and 4 times tables (and beyond!) would be much appreciated.
Swimming and PE
Swimming will take place every Tuesday afternoon. This is a compulsory part of education and all children must attend.
You must ensure your child has the correct equipment on this day – trunks (not long shorts) /costume, swimming hat and towel. No goggles. As with all P.E. earrings are not to be worn or must be taken out on this day.
PE / games will take place on Wednesday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has an indoor and outdoor PE kit available for this.
The class will be given weekly spellings to learn. They will be tested on these every Friday. Please spend time practising these with your child.
Your child will also be given a reading book and homework diary to bring home. Please listen to your child read regularly and make a note of it in the diary. You can add other information here as well if needed.
Encouraging regular attendance is one of the most powerful ways
to support children; for both for their happiness and wellbeing, as well as improving their learning in school. In the spring term our classes attendance was 93.7% with our school target being 96.1%. With your continued support, we hope to achieve our school target attendance in the summer term
