We hope you have had a lovely Christmas time and a very happy New Year!
We are getting the new year off to an exciting start with new topic 'Bottoms, Burps and Bile!' This topic combines exciting science experiments with a range of texts all focused around the human body. In English, we will be looking at 'The Demon Dentist' by David Walliams and a range of non-fiction texts about the human body. The children will write their own non-fiction report on the process of digestion and what happens in different parts of the body, as well as writing a police report on one of the characters from 'The Demon Dentist'. In science, we will be embarking on a journey to explore the digestive system from start to finish, completing many exciting experiments as we go. In maths, we will be learning about formal methods of multiplication and division as well as fractions. We will also be practising our times tables daily. In addition to this, we will be learning to play the recorder in music and continuing to learn about programming in computing lessons.
Our whole school rules are:
1. Be ready
2. Be respectful
3. Be safe
Our PE days this term are a Tuesday and a Friday. Please Make sure your child's PE kit is in school for these days. We no longer have swimming on a Friday after Christmas.
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 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.
