An action packed week of Mermaids, football and rounding.
This week, we have been working on Place Value in Maths, in English, we are immersing ourselves in our new text The Mermaid of Zennor, with some pleasing results. 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 Wednesday, we enjoyed our photographs and also wrote some fabulous descriptions of the Mermaid from our English text. On Thursday, we ended our Football sessions in P.E. with a mini tournament, the teamwork was fantastic.
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. 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.
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 complete our work on Place Value in Maths, as well as this, we will begin our next unit in Maths - Addition and Subtraction, work on the Mermaid of Zennor in English, 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.
