An action packed week of Mermaids, adding and subtracting and Romans.
This week, we have been working on Addition and subtraction in Maths, in English, we are writing in role as people who would have been there, in the time that the story of The Mermaid of Zennor was set. In Science, we continued with our work on States of Matter, thinking this week about what happens when we heat a solid, liquid or gas. We have worked of body tension and posture in our gymnastics session (see photos). On Thursday, we had a multi-sports session in P.E. and on Friday, we found out about the Roman invasion of Britain and Boudicca's response.
In terms of home learning, can I remind everybody that the expectation is that children read for at least 10 minutes at home everyday, this can be magazines, newspapers, manuals, cookery books, as well as their reading books, as it is all reading. I would also like children to spend time working on their times tables, which are vital in so many areas of the Maths curriculum, I have set them 25 minutes worth of TTRS time as home learning. This can be done as a block, or it can be spread across the week, so that the children do 5 minutes a day. I have been really pleased to give out lots of Dojo points to people who have been completing their time! Spellings will also start next week, so spellings have come home with the children to learn, as well as their Wider Curriculum home learning. Could the children do one activity really well and return it to me after half-term, you can do more if you want to, but I will expect one in. I have had a great story and a recipe as pieces of writing, I am waiting for some awesome science and art.
Next week, the children will be having P.E. on Tuesday and Thursday, so send them in, in their P.E kits on both of these days please. We will continue our work on addition and subtraction in Maths, as well as this, we will be writing our own legend style story, using our text the Mermaid of Zennor as inspiration, continue with States of Matter in Science, Romans in History and Drawing in Art.
Have a great weekend, it's looking sunny! See you on Monday.
