Welcome to Spring Term and a Happy New Year. – 5th January 2021

This week is STEM week and we have some lovely activities to get you thinking and challenge your ingenuity.  All of our activities are based around the theme vertically challenged – I’m thinking towers!!!

In Maths this week we will be continuing to practise our multiplication and division skills.

A new unit in English means Dragons and Writing Instructions!  I will say no more but it is a very exciting unit.

Our topic this term is Anglo Saxons so we will begin to find out all about these raiders and traders from the past.

Our PE topic is Dance and we are lucky to have the hall back in action.  Children can wear leggings and T shirts instead of the usual PE shorts as they will be in these all day.

A very exciting start to the term and I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

Santa Fun Run and Christmas Week

We have had a great week this term watching the fantastic panto with Peter Duncan and finishing all of our lovely cards and calendars.

 

We had so much fun at the Santa Fun Run.  Please look at our video we created on Seesaw and most of all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Santa Fun Run

Monday 7th December 2020

 

Welcome to the penultimate week of the autumn term. 

We are really getting into the spirit of the winter holidays with Christmas crafts and decorations this week.  We have a post box ready in the classroom for those that wish to bring in cards.  Can I remind you that we need all of these in by the Tuesday 8th December so that we can give them 48 hours isolation before handing them out.

We will be learning about why the Bible is important to Christians over the next few weeks and creating our own ‘special’ class full of inspiration.

In Maths we are practising our multiplication and division, this week in particular we are looking at solving word problems using our calculation skills and also how arrays can help us with our times tables.  Don’t forget to keep practising those tables.

As we are coming to the end of our Roman Britain unit we are finding out what the Roans have ever done for us and we are also finishing our Roman Britain landscape paintings.

Finally, we are still out and about and being active daily and are enjoying our Tag Rugby unit. 

Week beginning 23rd November 2020.

Welcome to another week.

 

Please complete the Seesaw activities each week.  New activities are added on Tuesday.  There are now two activities a week, a spelling activity and a maths or English task.

 

In English we are learning to use expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials and embedded clauses in our writing.  We are writing a portal story about Rome and using all our knowledge to create vivid description.

 

With our Romans in Britain topic, we will be looking at the impact the Romans had on Britain, both the positive and the negative.   A knowledge organiser has been added to this page, this can be used to reinforce vocabulary and concepts taught in class.

 

In Maths, we are moving onto multiplication and division.  We will be building on the work from Year 2 and introducing multiplication and division as equal and unequal groups using concrete resources and pictorially.  We concentrate on multiplying by 3, 4 and 8, ensuring children are completely fluent using these tables.  I have included a knowledge organiser below in order for you to help your child.

 

We are still practising our skills in Tag Rugby and making sure that we are active daily.  Can you ensure that as the weather gets colder, and wetter, that children have adequate clothing.

Children in Need 13.11.20

 

On Friday we will be doing Act Your Age activities throughout the day to support Children In Need. The children can wear spotty clothes, paying a donation of £1. All Pudsey accessories may be worn too.  Parents you can also act your age by doing anything that you can think of that can be done or timed by how old you are. Go on give it a go!

11th November 2020

We have had a lovely week of learning so far.

In Maths we have been estimating and rounding numbers this week and we took our learning outside to work with multiples of 100.

We are playing Tag Rugby in PE.  We have been practising our skills on the field, learning how to hold and pass a Rugby ball.

 

On Remembrance Day we talked about why we wear poppies and what the significance of the two-minute silence is.  We listened to Mr Coleman play the last post before our silence, which was held in class.  Afterwards we talked about conflict and human rights.  We learnt about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and what some of them are.

6th November

This week we have been finding out about the Romans! In English we are writing a non-chronological report all about the Roman Army.

We are looking at the features of reports and also learning some of the technical vocabulary. To help us remember what each word means we have created actions.

         Here are the actions for:

                             supplicate

                             General

                             Emperor

                             barbarian

                             Standard

                             conflict

                             assassinate

 

Can you guess which is which?

Things to remember:

This needs to be appropriate to the weather forecast for the day. You should also bring a spare pair of socks and shoes in case of getting wet feet while outside.
