I hope you are all well. We are praying from some drier weather for Sports Day next week.
We have had a busy week completing our assessments. We have read a poem, story and non-fiction text in the reading paper. In maths, we have answered an arithmetic and a reasoning paper. The children have worked incredibly hard and really shown off all they know. We have continued our learning about properties of shapes by looking at right, acute and obtuse angles with our angle gobblers. In English, we have watched part of a documentary on polar bears in preparation for writing and we have been reading some books some of the children chose for us from the library van. We have learnt about weather and climate in geography and food chains in science.
Next week is Hope Week. We look forward to a French Theatre visit on Monday. Tuesday is our science day and we will be completing a special art project on Wednesday. Thursday is Sports Day in the morning and swimming in the afternoon. The music concert is on Friday afternoon. It is going to be a busy and fun week!
Hope you have a good rest of the week and weekend. Below is a picture of our water cycle demonstration.
Hope you are well. It has been another lovely week here. The children have really impressed us with their attitudes and hard work, as ever.
This week, we have read the Rainforest Rough Guide and started to think about all the features and conventions of writing in the book that we will need when we write our page of a guidebook. We have finished our learning on time but will continue to practise telling the time to the nearest minute as many of the children still need some support with this. We will now start to look at angles in shapes. We have finished our coding lessons in computing. The children can now sequence code to make a musical instrument with the computer keyboard. In Life Skills, we have started our work on relationships by looking at friendships. We have also revised the correct names for all our body parts and looked at the Pants rule again. In science, we have been learning about producers.
Next week, we are continuing the Rainforest Rough Guide by starting to write a diary. We will continue our learning about angles in maths and ecosystems in science by learning about food chains.
Hope you have a good weekend and enjoy the rest of your week.
It has been a beautiful week with the weather. The children have invented and written their own Greek myths this week. I have really enjoyed reading them. They have been busy adding lots of exciting details and have also been really careful with their punctuation and spelling. In maths, we have continued our unit on time and started to learn to tell the time to the nearest minute and how to use the 24 hour clock. In computing, we have been learning how to sequence commands in Scratch and we will use this knowledge to create a piece of music next week.
Next week, we are going to start reading Rainforest Rough Guide for English which will link to our science on ecosystems. We are carrying on swimming and will be finishing our computing.
Thank you, as ever, for your support.

I can't believe this is the children's last half term! They have all matured and grown so much. We still have a lot to pack in!
In English, this week the children wrote a longer piece of writing about their myth character. I have really enjoyed reading their descriptions of their character. Next week, they are going to write their own myth with their characters featuring in it. The children have found some really ambitious words to describe their characters this week and I'm looking forward to them using those next week. In maths, we have started telling the time. The children should be able to tell the time to the nearest minute so I have set them a challenge and will give two Dojos to anyone who can do this! We have started a new unit all about ecosystems in science. We looked at a freshwater pond but will also be looking at the rainforest and other ecosystems.
Please keep reading, practising spellings and times tables. We have lots of exciting things happening this term: music concert, sports day etc so keep a look out for dates on Dojo.
Have a great Friday and weekend!
