Welcome back from what we hope has been a safe and enjoyable half term!

Our new topic for this half term is Potions! In English, we will be focusing mainly on two books, 'The Witches' by Roald Dahl and 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' by J.K Rowling. The children will create their own potion recipes, write newspaper articles about the Grand High Witch and start their very own Harry Potter sequel! In science, we will exploring the changing states of solids, liquids and gases  and their properties through exciting investigations and experiments.  In maths, we will be recapping on addition as well as beginning to use the formal written methods of subtraction and multiplication. We will also be practising our times tables daily. In line with our 'Potions' topic, in history we will look back at how medicine has changed over time, with a particular focus on the Tudor period.  

Our whole school rules are:

1. Be ready

2. Be respectful

3. Be safe

PE

Our PE day this term is Tuesday. Please Make sure your child's PE kit is in school for this day. We also have swimming this term on a Friday so please can children come prepared with their swimming kit (including swimwear, a towel and a swimming hat). Please can girls wearing earrings remove these before school on a Friday. 

 

Homework

Homework is given out every Friday and due back the following Wednesday, alternating between an English and Maths focus. 

In addition to this, we focus on weekly spellings, which we ask pupils to practise alongside doing their homework. Children are also being tested on their times tables daily and we ask that they are encouraged to go over these at home as much as possible!

Reading Books

Reading books will be changed on a Wednesday each week. Children are welcome to read different books from the class book corner if they finish their book before this day.
