Happy New Year and Happy Friday!
What a week, Flying machines, Multiplication and rain - lots of rain!
This week, we have been working on Multiplication and Division in Maths, in English, we have been working on our text Farther, which explores dreams and relationships, this week, the children have planned and are writing their own sequel to the story. In Science, we enjoyed a session with Sarah Augbaya from Devon Wildlife Trust, she will be with us every Thursday until half term, so wellies and coats every Thursday please.
Next week, we are completing our English text Farther, starting our new History topic of Anglo-Saxons and our new Science unit on We are also continuing to practise our Times Tables.
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 Friday. The Wider Curriculum home learning sheet for this half term, will be out next Friday, look out for this please.
Have a great weekend, let's hope it's a bit drier. See you on Monday
