Next week in maths (week beginning 15/07/17):We will be revisiting prime numbers and prime factorisation this week.
Our Class Theme
This year our class theme is All Around the World. Our Reading Quest takes place in locations from Around the World in 80 days. Students aim to reach San Francisco by Friday to get a DD!
Each week I will choose a star of the week based on great work and a great attitude. The star of the week will have the opportunity to take our class mascot (Yogi!) home for the weekend and record the exciting adventures they have had together.
Our Topic This Term - The Circle of Life
In the Spring Term our Topic is the Circle of Life. This relates to our two science modules: Living Things and Their Habitats and Animals, including Humans. We will also be taking part in "The Crunch", a national science program of science investigation. We will be looking at how the environment can affect the germination of seeds.
Our PE days are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Please remember to have your PE kit, including suitable footwear for Monday, when we will be outdoors. On Monday we will be doing rugby, on Tuesday and Wednesday we be doing gym.
Every week the children will have twelve spellings to learn as well as multiplication and/or division facts. Times tables and spelling tests take place on a Friday morning. If you lose your spellings you can download them from the 'Homework' section at the bottom of this page.
Children are expected to read at least five times per week. Please could parents/carers complete home school reading records for children to hand in each day in order to complete their reading quest.
Talking homework will also be set on a fortnightly basis. The purpose of this homework is to provide children with some ideas and support for when they complete their Friday write.
The children are also provided with a homework grid. this grid is made up of many different activities designed to support our class topic. Children are encouraged to choose a homework which appeals to them and present their work in an interesting and creative way. These pieces of work are due in fortnightly.
Friday- Spelling test. Times tables / division facts test.
Alternate Friday - Homework grid activity to be handed in.
Reading - Home reading record to be handed in daily.
