We hope you have had a fun and relaxing Easter break!

Our new topic for this half term is 'Road Trip USA!'. During this topic, we will be learning all about the history and geography of the different American states. In English, we will be focusing on the book 'Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief' by Rick Riordan. In the book, Percy Jackson, a demi-god, embarks on a quest through America to recover Zeus’s missing lightning bolt. We will be writing a diary entry from Percy’s point of view and writing our own exciting myths. In maths, we will be learning more about fractions, decimals and solving problems involving measurement. We will still be practising our times tables daily up to 12 x 12. In our theme lessons this half term, we will be learning about some of the tribes that lived in the different states in the past including their homes, daily lives and beliefs. We will also be learning about the varying physical geography of the different states. In science, we will be learning about electricity and creating our own electrical circuits. We will also be continuing to learn to play the recorder. 

Our whole school rules are:

1. Be ready

2. Be respectful

3. Be safe

PE

Our PE days this term are a Monday and Wednesday. Please Make sure your child's PE kit is in school for these days. 

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.
