First week back!


This week in Maths, we have introduced a mini project based around time. We told the time to 0’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to and worked out the time the clocks were showing. We then looked at working out what the time would be in 1 hour and half an hour later. This was quite tricky but we showed great resilience.

In English, we have started our next Power of Reading book. This half term we are looking at How to Find Gold. The children were introduced to the book and made predictions about what they think it is going to be about. They then looked at the characters and created character descriptions for them both. We can’t wait to delve further into the book and discover what the adventure has in store for us.

In Science, we have been looking at materials and what we already know. We named lots of different materials and then had to match a variety to their name.

In R.E, we were introduced to celebrations. This week, we have looked at how Hindu’s celebrate love by investigating what a Hindu wedding looks like.

Our Championship Point winner last week was Charlotte. Well done for collecting those championship points Charlotte.

Our Team Championship Point winner was Determination. They’ve been working hard as a team, encouraging each other to get those championship points. Well done Determination.

Important Information:

As a school we have Attendance Avengers where each class can win prizes. We have managed to have our extra playtime and are now working together to earn that cinema afternoon. Our attendance last week was 92%, which isn’t very good, we need to aim for at least 97% if not more. Let’s keep aiming high and go for the next prize.

Home Learning – This is sent out on a Friday and the children are expected to have this returned by Monday. The children receive spellings and maths homework relating to their learning that week.

Reading books – It is expected that these are changed at least once a week. Our main days for changing reading books are Tuesdays and Thursdays.

P.E – This takes place every Monday. Please ensure your child has a P.E kit available in school.

Book Swap Shop is well underway. Remember to bring in any unwanted books and you’ll receive a token this can then be exchanged at the shop on Tuesday’s.

Active Learn – Remember to access this wonderful resource where you can read books, complete comprehension and grammar tasks and much more!

Rockstar Times Tables – The children have been given their login for this fantastic new resource. It has been great to see how many children have accessed this at home. Well done!
