Happy New Year.
Things might look a little different at the start of this term with home learning taking a forefront. Keep checking our noticeboard for updates on school news and information.
When we return this term our topic will be The Romans. Alongside this we will be reading The Fatal Fire as well as the myth Romulus and Remus. We will be working through the text completing various related tasks. We are going to be focusing on travelling, throwing and catching in our PE lessons with a focus on hand eye coordination as well as spatial awareness. Please ensure your child comes to school on a Monday in full PE kit!
We use a maths scheme called Maths No Problem which involves using lots of practical methods and abstract resources to aid the children's understanding of maths. Children use a greater number of resources and are improving their mathematical vocabulary daily.
In English we will be revising previous learning on writing answers to reading comprehensions in a full sentences and not starting our answers with ' because'.
The children will also be given logins to Learning Beck, Doodle Maths and Times Table Rockstars, these logins can be found on your child's homework. On Learning Beck children can play on many different educational games.
