Important Information
PE Lessons
PE is on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please make sure you have a named PE kit in school at all times. It will be sent home every half term to be washed.
Forest School
Forest School is on Wednesdays. Make sure you have your wellies and a coat in school as we go out no matter what the weather is like. Girls may be more comfortable in trousers for forest school as skirts/dresses can be a little uncomfortable under our waterproof trousers.
As we approach the cooler months please ensure that you also have a hat, scarf and pair of gloves in school for Forest School.
Library
Library is on Mondays. Please remember to bring in your book to be changed each week if it has been read.
 
Water Bottles
Please send in a named water bottle which can be stored outside the classroom. Please ensure that this only contains water - thank you.
  


Our Reading Zone

We are continuing to use our Reading Area in the classroom where we can enjoy a broad range of books.  Continue to add to the display by recommending books for your friends which you have read and enjoyed. 


Maths


We are developing our division and multiplication skills this term, along with practicing our addition and subtraction in order to beat our Big Maths Beat That scores each week. 

Have a spare five minutes? Practice your Learn It's!

 

5+7=12

5+8=13

6+8=14

5+9=14

6+9=15

7+9=16

Literacy:

This term we are learning all about poetry and even writing some of our own! Which is your favourite poem? Why? 

We will also be looking at narrative texts and writing our own story based on Katie and the Sunflower. 

Can you think of some WOW words to add into your story?

We will of course be continuing to practice our full stops, capital letters and speech marks in order to shine in our fortnightly Big Writes.

 

Topic:

This half term our theme is plants and living things.

                   

How do plants grow and survive?

What are living things?

 



Here's what we got upto last term...


We used the numeracy display to practice telling the time...                                        

                



... and we even told the time outside!

   




We used a Venn Diagram to help us sort landscapes.                                                   

                   






We learned the features of a non-chronological report by chopping it up and sticking it in the right order!                                                                                                                               

 




We enjoyed reading in our book corner.....                                                            

                                                      




 .... and we loved finding numbers to make addition and subtraction calculations correct!                                                                                                                                                               

 

 

                                                               And we certainly enjoyed using Skittles to help us work out our fraction work!
