We hope you have all had a fantastic summer holiday!
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 autumn term is 'Turrets and Tiaras' where we will be learning all about castles, royalty and squires. We will be going on a trip to Windsor castle and exploring how to be a medieval knight. 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.
There will be no spelling this week as next week is our Christingle service on Friday morning.
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.

For the last weeks of term, we will be focusing on division. We will be starting by sharing between equal groups before beginning dividing by 2, 5 and 10.
This week we will be looking at invitations. We will be devising a checklist about what needs to be included in a good invitation before designing and creating our own invitations.
RE and Art
In the lead up to Christmas, we will be looking at the nativity story in RE and why Christians celebrate Christmas.
We will then focus on printing in art, this time making a gift box print.
