We hope you have had a lovely May half term!
Our new topic for this half term is 'Traders and Raiders!'. During this topic, we will be learning all about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. To get our new topic off to a great start on our 'WOW' day we will be trying out lots of different craft activities such as making Anglo Saxon charms out of clay, creating a stained glass window, drawing ourselves in Anglo-Saxon outfits and baking traditional honey shortbread. In English, we will writing a persuasive text to advertise Viking long boats that we will design. We will also be reading the book 'There's a Viking Under My Bed' by Jeremy Strong and writing our own Viking stories including some of the characters from the book. In maths, we will be continuing to learn about fractions and decimals, as well as revising other topics such as statistics and time. 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 the historical timeline of the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, as well as the geography of where they came from and settled. We will also be learning lots about the Viking and Anglo-Saxon ways of life including their hobbies, food, clothing and much more. In our music lessons, we will be continuing to learn to play the recorder.
Our whole school rules are:
1. Be ready
2. Be respectful
3. Be safe
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 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.
