Context for learning
This half term, we are looking at the colourful topic, "Rainforests". We shall be reading various text, fiction and non-fiction, based around this theme as a means to learn about the topic. We shall continue to build on our 'reading for pleasure' culture in the classroom by reading daily, having a weekly home-school book and accessing our online Bug Club accounts. In topic we shall be building our knowledge about Rainforests and the impact of human behaviour on them. In Science we shall be studying "Plants".
All pupils have weekly spellings which they are expected to learn.
Weekly Big Maths: Learn it's, Clic and SAFE
Homework will be set using Google Classroom and Seesaw.
We shall also be focusing on times tables and using Times Tables Rock Stars.
A homework choices grid is issued every half term and pupils are expected to complete homework from there, it can be found below and on Google Classroom. I hope you enjoy supporting your child with these activities and take an interest in the topics we explore in school.
Class Dojo will be updated regularly to keep you up to date with the learning, it will also be used to send out any reminders. You can contact me via the school office or via the ClassDojo app.
The children will be doing P.E. on Wednesday. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing grey jogging bottoms and black trainers on this day. A water bottle is also needed.
With best wishes,
