Welcome back after the half term break.
Our Topics include:
History – Florence Nightingale, we will also compare nursing today. We will also look at other famous people and what makes them famous.
World Book Day - is on Thursday 5th March. We are doing a book swop so please encourage your child to bring in a book he or she has read and swop it with another child.
NUMBOTS – your child has now had a personal logon since January. It is in the inside cover of the blue Home School Book. Although we have regular opportunities to do this at school please encourage your child to use this at home. Rapid recall of mental maths is essential base for all mathematical calculation. We have noticed how pupils who regularly work on Numbots are making excellent progress in the rapid recall of number facts.
Maths - we will continue working on our 2, 5 and 10 times tables, division and measure. Please encourage your child to tell the time. It is important that they know: months of the year, seconds in a minute, hours in a day, days in a week etc.
Literacy – We are focusing on fairy tales this term. There will be a fairy tale challenge as part of homework this term to see how many you and your child can read/listen to. It is so important that our children are familiar with a range of fairy tales.
PLEASE keep up the home reading, if you child is on Stage 8 or above he/she may take more than a day to read a book. As long as he/she has read about 10 pages, a red dot can still be added to the reading challenge. It is preferable that reading of books is not rushed just to get a red dot rather take time to talk about the book with your child.
Homework - phonics homework is to please be in by Wednesday and other homework is due in by Thursday morning, so I have time to mark it for Friday.
Outing to Bristol Aquarium - we will be visiting the aquarium on Tuesday 24th March (this will be during school hours) further information to follow.
French – we continue to explore colours, food, numbers through song. Every day we do the afternoon register in French.
CLASS PAGE - I regularly update links on our Indigo page on the school website . There are also photos of activities which help you to see what we have done during the week.
