Welcome back, we hope you had time in the half term to rest and recharge your batteries ready for this term!
We continue our learning on Mountains, Rivers and Coasts this term continuing with rivers and moving onto coasts.
In English, we are looking at poetry first which will allow us to continue to develop our writing skills and really work hard to paint a picture in the reader’s mind. We will also be learning new skills to help us do some persuasive letter writing later in the term.
Homework will continue in a similar fashion. Spelling, Literacy and Maths Homework being due in on a Thursday. As before, the whole terms spelling and literacy homework will be handed out at the beginning of the term with maths being given out weekly. Please ensure you look after your homework folders and keep your sheets in the correct order. Homework Club continues on a Monday afternoon until 4pm. There are still spaces available for this group if you want to join.
In Design and Technology this term we will design and build a boat which is capable of carrying the most cargo possible!
Read-opoly will continue this term with some new rewards added to the game! There is a new raffle prize and the introduction of a prize box too! In order to move around the board you need to read to an adult 4 times a week. Extra bonus rewards are given for those who read more than this.
This term PE will focus on practising our Gymrun skills to ensure we improve our overall fitness along with dance. This will be on a Tuesday afternoon, however, as always it is a good idea to have your kit in school every day.
Times Table Championship will continue allowing you to develop your speed of recall for all multiplication facts up to the 12 times table. To support this, part of your homework is to practice your times tables weekly using a variety of different websites and games. Time Table Rock Stars is a fabulous way to improve you times table skills. You can earn coins to buy items from the shop to dress and improve your avatar but best of all, you can challenge a friend (or ever Mrs Adams!) to a battle. There are always copies of the Championship sheets in the classroom if you would like to take some home to practice or even better, challenge an adult!
We cannot wait to see you all again on Monday the 6th of January.
Mrs Adams, Mrs James and Miss Dyke.
