This term, our Christian value is Friendship and our academic work will be based around the topic of Africa.
Already it's the last week of term! It has been a very busy one with a compressed timetable to cover a lot, especially maths. A reminder then of the excellent https://www.mathsisfun.com/ website (also mentioned below for a while!) that is an extremely to refresh the maths taught and there are some quiz questions there too - well worth a look.
Enjoy the half-term break!
Maths: Will be given on 20th May, expected back 3rd June.
Reading: Due 20th May. Next given out after half-term.
Softcopies of both are the in 'Useful Documents' below.

The following website has lots of useful maths information for parents and children alike:
Spelling tests are now being done as part of dictated sentences selected randomly from the words learnt to date.
A spelling list will not be issued!
Therefore, please review the list of words that we've learnt frequently, especially the spelling rules.
The full list of words (grouped in 'spelling rules') can be found in "Useful Documents" below.
Please ensure that reading with an adult is taking place regularly. It is vitally important to hear your children read and to ask them questions about what they've read: words, meaning and prediction.
To earn the end of term reading certificate, they will need to read four times a week for the entire term. I will only know if they have completed this task if you sign their partnership books. The 'LF' stamp in their planner indicates that they've met the criterion for the week. They then need to update the Reading Challenge Chart in the classroom - this requires organisation on their part!
