I hope everybody had a relaxing half term break and the children are ready to start another fantastic topic.
This half term our topic is Playlist. As the title suggests, the children will go on a journey through the valley of sound and find out about instruments, the sounds they make and how they are produced. The topic will be heavily music based and will give the children the opportunity to explore their likes and dislikes of musical genres, musical around the world and music throughout history. Our writing and reading will be linked around the topic too; starting with a build up to writing a poem which uses onomatopoeia based around the poem 'The sound collector'. In maths, we will be continuing with multiplication and division, looking at ways to multiply and divide mentally before moving to written methods. We will then start to look at fractions and decimals towards the end of the term. We will also be practising our times tables daily; I have sent these home for the children to work on at home too. Please encourage your children to log onto TT rockstars at home for further practise.
Egypt class will have PE on a Monday and a Friday. Please make sure that your child has their full PE kit in school on all days of the week. Swimming has now finished for the year.
If you have any questions about your child’s class, routines, or learning I am pleased to talk to you at the classroom door either at the start of the day or the end of the day :)
