What a busy week we’ve had!

We are really enjoying our topic ‘Let’s go to the Arctic’. We have been learning all about the Arctic landscape and we have used geographical vocabulary when comparing the Arctic to the UK. In Science we have been learning to read a thermometer and we carried out an investigation to find out which coat would be the best to take to the Arctic. In maths we have started our statistics work and we have been looking at tally charts and pictograms. In English we thoroughly enjoyed reading the story ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ and we have enjoyed drama activities linked to this.

Helpful Reminders

P.E

P.E will now take place on a Tuesday and Wednesday – please ensure children have their P.E kits in school on these days.

                                                                   Forest School

This takes place every Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure that children bring their change of clothing in as we don’t have enough space to store in the classrooms.

Reading Books and Diaries

Please ensure that these are brought into school everyday.

Spelling Books

Please ensure that the children’s red spelling books are returned to school every Monday – this is the day we have our quiz. Books will be returned on a Tuesday with new spellings in and feedback on how children have done on their spelling quiz.

Water Bottles

Children can bring water bottles into school. Please make sure that these are filled every morning and they can be refilled throughout the day.

Creative Homework

We have had some excellent work returned to school and the standard of some models and tasks in books has been super. Our final homework progress check is Monday 5th February. New homework will be sent home on Friday 9th February.
