Gymnastics will be at the Leisure Centre with Ina and Shannon. We will have 5 weeks of these sessions. Please make sure you have both your indoor and outdoor PE kits in school.
This half term in English we will be focusing on fiction texts, looking at some stories from other cultures. This links in with our topic work all about Extreme Environments. Remember to read for 5 minutes every night/morning to an adult.
Maths lessons will see us developing our knowledge about place value, addition ad subtraction of single digit numbers,measurement and understanding properties of shape. Maths lessons are always very busy and the children work extremely hard! Every Friday we have our Big Maths Beat That test and always challenge ourselves to beat our score.
Science lessons this half term are all about 'looking at animals'. We will be looking at different animals and their food and how animals are similar and different to one another.
In Topic this term we are looking at 'Extreme Environments'. We will be looking at what sort of weathers happen in different parts of the world. We will be comparing these weathers to our own and seeing how they are similar/different. We will be locating different countries on the map and seeing if their location plays a part to their weather conditions.
Spellings and times tables tests will be done in class every Friday. The spellings for each half term are available at the bottom of our class page under the heading 'Spellings'. Maths homework will be given out on a Thursday and will need to be completed and in school by the following Tuesday.
