This term the children will be learning gymnastic and dance skills.
Please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school at all times.
Make and Bake
Thank you to the families who have already paid this for last term and this term. If you have not already sent in Make and Bake money please could you send in by 10th May 2019. It is £3 per term (£3 January – March and £3 April – July).
There is work set for the children using the online ‘My Maths’ website. The children have all been given their own log in codes so that they can access the activities set from home.
We also complete some of these activities in school.
The children are continuing to work on their 4x times tables. They should be fluent not only with the multiplication facts but also know the division facts. For example 3 x 4 = 12 and 12 ÷ 4 = 3.
Weekly spellings will continue as normal. Please ensure that your child practises these at home and remembers to bring in the spelling book each week.
Our new topic after the next half term is Ancient Greece. We would like to hold a full Ancient Greek Day and have a Greek banquet which will be funded out of Make and Bake money.
More details will follow nearer the time.
Please can all families continue to read with their child every night, even it is just for 5 minutes your child will benefit from this. We cannot stress the importance of this. Even if your child is an independent reader they still need support from reading with an adult and being asked questions about the text to check their understanding.
Our topic this term is plants. On Friday 10th May 2019 we would like the children to come in in old clothes so that we can have a day clearing the poly tunnel. We can then plant new plants (the children will be deciding which plants they want to grow) and the children will take responsibility to ensure that these are watered and looked after.
On this day we will also have a picnic outside so the children do not need to bring in snack this day.
Both of these activities will also be paid for from Make and Bake money.

If you have not already sent in Make and Bake money (The £3 covers the whole term from January to March) please could you send it in to school by Friday 15th March.
Our topic this term is Ancient Egypt and we would be happy for the children to bring in and share any exciting facts they have found out.
