Homework is given out on a Wednesday and is to be handed in by the following Wednesday. Our weekly spelling test is on a Wednesday.
P.E. days are on a Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child's PE kit is in school. They will change for PE in school and will take their kit home each half term to be washed.
In Maths this half term we are focusing on multiplication and division. We will be dividing by sharing and using multiplication facts to solve division problems. We will also be finding fractions of an amount and of shapes.
Some useful Maths games sites:
In Literacy this half term we will be looking at different stories linked to our topic of Explorers and use these to create a letter and a recount of visiting the Moon. We will be using non-fiction texts about Explorers and using the information we find to create a non-chronological report.
In RE this half term we are learning about The Mass. We will learn about what happens during the different parts of Mass and why they are important. We will understand why it is important to listen to the Readings, know that during Offertory we offer gifts to God, know what happens at the Consecration and understand that when people receive the Holy Communion, it is Jesus they receive.

In Topic this half term we are learning about The Great Fire of London. We will be using different to types of texts to gather information about why the fire started, why it spread so quickly and changes that were made in London after the fire. We will be locating the fire and where it spread to on a map. We are going to have Fire Fighters visit us to talk to us about Fire Safety.
We had a great day celebrating World Book Day. We came to school dressed as our favourite book characters, watched an assembly of the story 'The Day the Crayons Quit' and ended the day with a Reading Café!
We had lots of fun taking part in our Sponsored Triathlon. We found it a little bit tricky but we persevered and tried our best. Thank you to all our Sponsors!
