We are now settled into our second term - how time flies!
We have started the term by reading ‘How to Live Forever’ and based our English work around this lovely book. We will be following this with more focussed SATS preparation work, practising reading comprehensions, grammar, punctuation and spelling in preparation for the upcoming SATS (week beginning 13th May).
In Science, we are covering topics on Light and Electricity as well as revising other Key Stage Two curriculum areas and participating in a whole school ‘STEM’ week around the theme of Space.
We are continuing with PE Mondays and Fridays, ICT, French, Art, RE and Music
We will continue to give out maths and English homework on alternate Wednesdays, due in the following Monday. Please could you encourage your child to complete these tasks to the best of their ability and hand them in on time.
Practising reading, times tables and spellings is also something we expect the children to be doing regularly at home to support our work in the classroom. Using ReadTheory and TT Rockstars is still really important and those children who are not able to access the internet at home will be expected to find time during the school day to catch up. In the run up to SATS, we may send home extra work where we feel there are gaps to be filled and would appreciate your support with this.
We are really looking forward to our visit to PGL soon. We will be shortly sending out a final letter once the activities and accommodation are confirmed.
Another plea for baking money… please send in £2 per term to cover the costs of baking. Thank you.
