Our Year Group News – 10th April 2018
We have recently finished topics on ‘Electricity' and ‘Animal Adaptations' and are currently working on our exciting ‘Moonbase' project. The children are working cooperatively in groups to design, create and present a brochure about their moonbase. This cross-curricular topic includes lots of ICT, maths (scaled drawings, measuring, etc.), science investigations, art and persuasive writing.
We are just beginning to read our new class text for this term: ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ by Michael Morpurgo.
We are also, of course, very busy preparing for ‘Cake Week' next month (shhhh - don't mention the SATS)! Thank you for all your work at home to support this.
We are most especially looking forward to our residential trip to Sneaton, near Whitby, in June. Please keep your fingers crossed for us that the weather will be kind!
PE and Games lessons
These are usually on a Monday and a Thursday. Please ensure your child has the appropriate, labelled kit in school.
As in previous years, please listen to your child read as often as possible each week, help them to practise and learn their tables and spellings and encourage them to practise their Maths on Mangahigh.
Please be aware that additional homework is given out every Friday and the children are rewarded for handing their completed work in on a Monday morning. At times, your child may be given extra homework to practise particular skills. Please remember to check and sign your child's homework diary every weekend. There are homework deadlines, useful reminders and details of upcoming events for you to see.
