We have had a fantastic (and very busy!) start to the term - well done Barn Owls! In History and Art we are designing our own mythlogical creature for a Top Trump card; in geography we have been locating European countries; in R.E we have started to look at symbols in religion; in maths we have been learning our Roman numerals and negative numbers and in English we have been learning Greek myths. We have had a focus on prepositions in Grammar and Punctuation and looking at the suffixes -ant/-ance/-ancy in Spelling.
Letters have gone home about non-uniform day, 11+ (Yr5 only) and homework. These are on the webpage too.
How you can help at home this week:
- Help your child practise their timestables (a great way to do this is by downloading a timestables app to your phone or table). There is a test every
Monday. There is also an excellent timestables game if you go to the children section of the website. Click on games, then click on maths.
- Help your child find and write words with the suffixes -ant/ance/-ancy. They will be tested on Wednesday.
- Encourage them to come up with ideas for this term's homework menu.
- Read with them. Even though they are getting older it is still good to hear hem read and discuss books with them.
To celebrate World Literacy Day we will be having a school poetry performance celebration. We will be learning 'I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud' by William Wordsworth and 'Rhythm of Life' by Michael Rosen. Please come and watch our performances in the school hall at 2.15pm if you can!
