Our topic this term will be ‘Dinosaurs’, where the children will learn about the different types of dinosaurs, where they used to live and what happened to them! It is an exciting topic where we will engage in many fun and stimulating lessons and activities, as well as a trip to Crocodiles of the World!
Please note the change of date for the Eisteddfod finals which will now be held on the 28th of February at Cox Green School at 6pm.
Doodlemaths- please allow your children to go on doodlemaths on a regular basis. The aim behind the app is to build maths skills and the more often they complete work, and the more accurate they are, the harder the work becomes. Please let your children complete the questions independently, otherwise the work will become too hard. I have added a few activities to consolidate the work we are doing in class.
We look forward to seeing you at viewing afternoon!
Miss Bond and Miss Sawdon

This week we will be beginning to learn about weight and mass. We will start by making direct comparisons of weight and then be moving on to using a balance scale. We will be making sure we use correct mathematical language when describing weight such as 'heavy/light' and 'heavier than/lighter than'. Towards the end of the week, we will move on to solving problems involving weight and mass.
Over the next two weeks, we will be relating our writing to the book 'Tom and the Dinosaur Egg'. After ensuring that we have learnt the story and devised our own actions, we will be writing character and setting descriptions. When writing we will be making sure we write in full sentences with capital letters and full stops.
Over the next two weeks, we will be focusing on art. We will be learning how the cave people painted and making our own stories to portray in our pictures.
Unit 9 will be due in on Friday 23rd February 2018.
Unit 9 spellings test will be on Monday 26th February 2018.
Doodle Maths logins have all been sent home so please look out for them! We will be working on time over the coming weeks, however, I suggest your child works through place value and shape as it will further embed their knowledge.
I have set some 'added extras' onto doodle maths as homework for your child to work through that links to the maths topics we have been looking at this term.
Topic homework is due on Wednesday 7th of March.
