What a week, inventions, Area and dancing with Pudsey!
This week, we have been working on Multiplication and Division in Maths after completing the assessment for Area with pleasing results, in English, we have been writing our end of unit piece based on our text Until I met Dudley, which explores inventions and how they work. In Science, we begun our unit on the Rock Cycle, whilst on Tuesday and Thursday, we enjoyed energetic P.E. sessions, thinking about why raising our heart rate is good for us and the types of exercise we need to do to do this. We also enjoyed an exciting assembly on Thursday with Mr Cutler, thinking about things that matter to us.
We finished the week with a day of non-uniform and a dance party with Pudsey for Children in Need. A huge thank you for all your donations for the Christmas Fair and Children in Need.
Next week, we are going to be starting a new English text, watch this space for more details, continuing our Maths unit on Multiplication and Division; our Geography unit on Rivers and our Science unit on the Rock Cycle. We will also be cooking on Thursday and possibly Friday, in preparation for the Christmas Fair. This year, we are baking chocolate chip cookies, so please come along and sample the Christmas Elves from Ash class' cooking! Friday 24th November straight after school until 5.00. Please come and support our school.
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 are out for the test on Monday. There is also a new Wider Curriculum home learning sheet, both on Dojo and the children have a paper copy with them today. There are various activities on this, I will expect the recommended read sheet back next week and one of the other activities (more if you want to) completed by Thursday 14th December.
Have a great weekend. See you on Monday
