Spring Term

Welcome back to our new term. We hope you had a good Christmas and New Year.

Our Maths is going really well. This half term we are recapping place value, addition and subtraction, and carrying on with learning about multiplication and division, as well as fractions, time, measure and 3D shapes.

 

In English this half term, we are learning all about Traditional Tales, and how we can retell them and also write our own versions of a well known story.  We are also going to be learning poetry and have learnt how to use a dictionary to help us with our reading and writing.

In R.E. we are learning about what it is like to belong to a faith community, and how we celebrate weddings. We are really excited about holding our own 'mock wedding' at the end of half term.

In Science this term, we are learning all about everyday materials and their properties. So far we have found out that different materials can be hard, soft, smooth, transparent, opaque, waterproof and absorbent!!

In PE this term, we are focusing on gymnastics and net and wall games.  We know it is important that we keep our bodies and heart healthy and that we must warm up and cool down before and after each lesson.

In DT we are carrying on with the Traditional Tales theme and are learning how to make moving pictures using levers, sliders and pivot mechanisms. We are hoping to show our work at the next parents evening.

We are doing well with our reading, and lots of us are moving up onto the next stage in our reading levels. Please continue to help us by listening to us read. We love showing you just how good we are getting!! A big thank you to Mrs Oliver who comes in to listen to us read.

If you have any questions, please feel free to pop in and have a chat.
