What a week - You've heard of Earth, Wind and Fire, well we've had - Wind, rain and Romans!
This week, we have been working on Addition and subtraction in Maths and have completed the unit, in English, we have written our own legends based on the the story of The Mermaid of Zennor. In Science, we continued with our work on States of Matter, thinking this week about temperature and how solids, liquids and gases change. when we heat a solid, liquid or gas. I have received a great array of home learning from our storm day yesterday, thank you to the cookie bakers, they were delicious! (See photos)
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 be out again after half term.
Next week, we are starting on a new English text, a new Maths unit, a new Geography unit and a new Science unit, which are all going to be very exciting.
Parents evenings will be next week, on Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th November (3.40-6.30 both evenings), sign up sheets are up to sign up outside the classroom. Alternatively, send me a message vis Dojo to check availability and secure a slot
Have a great weekend, I hope the weather is better than today!
