The children have this evening brought home new Spelling books which they have written in the words for next week's spelling test.

 

They also have a tables test next week. They need to make sure they know the number facts for the 8 times table ready for quick response questions. More confident children can be tested on the division facts.

Dear Parents/Carers

 

Welcome back! I hope that everyone has had a lovely summer holiday and is refreshed and ready to learn.  We have an exciting term ahead of us, starting with learning about Roman Britain and our Roman expert.

 

Throughout this term we will be learning about:

  • Roman Britain (History, Geography, Computing & Art)
  • Light (Science)
  • Wikipedia (Computing)
  • A time to think about belonging to each other (Religious Education)
  • Invasion Games and Football(Physical Education)
  • Me and making a positive contribution (PSHCE)
  • Learning with others (Core Learning Skills)
  • Number and calculations focus  (Mathematics)
  • Poetry, narrative and non-narrative text types (English)

 

Our PE days are Monday and Thursday.

 

Donations of the following items would be greatly appreciated to support our learning:

  • Torches – please clearly label so that they can be returned at the end of the science unit
  • Unwanted/broken battery operated toys and gadgets for our next topic - Bright Sparks!

 

Homework will consist of daily reading, weekly spelling, a themed self directed project and tasks to consolidate classroom learning when needed. 

 

A special note about readingBE CREATIVE – although the children will bring home class readers and should read them regularly, they are not the only source of reading material children should be exposed to.  Vary reading experiences (e.g. Read to your child, child reads independently, child reads to siblings etc), discuss reading materials (e.g. characters, lay out of text, purpose etc) and consider real life examples of texts (websites, recipes, newspapers, magazines etc).  The ultimate aim is to provide a wide range of positive reading experiences therefore ALL READING ACTIVITIES can be recorded as part of their daily reading.  Children should be encouraged to record their reading experiences independently and ask you to sign when completed. 

 

Thank you in advance for your support. 

 

Yours Sincerely
