We hope you have all had a fantastic winter break!
On the class page, you will be able to find out what we are doing over the next fortnight, see photographs of our activities, access websites which might be useful as well as see what spelling words we are currently working on.
Our new topic for the spring term is 'Staying Alive' where we will be learning all about the human body, healthy eating and Florence Nightingale. Keep checking the class page to see what we will be learning in the core subjects over the week.
The reading challenge will continue this year. The children need to read at least four times a week for ten weeks to receive their reading badge at the end of term. Please record when you read in the Partnership Book as then we also know when to change the book.
You will receive the spellings on a sticker in the homework book (the first one is already in there). The spellings are a mixture of spelling rule (black) and common exception words (orange). The children will then complete their spelling test on a Friday in the book so you can see the results.
7th- 21st February- Half term
This week we will be continuing to learn about measurement with a focus on weight and temperature.
For our last week of half term, we will be writing our own balanced argument about healthy eating. We will be ensuring that we include the features of an argument in our writing, as well as making sure our sentences are grammatically correct.
For this week, and the week after half term, our block subject will art. We will be focusing on watercolour to create a final piece of fruit and vegetables.
