Dates for your Diary
Our topic is called 'Extreme Survival'. We have been learning about different climates around the world, and how different animals have adapted to living in these conditions. We have also learnt more about endangered species, and things we can do to make a difference.
PE - Our PE day is every other Monday, but please have your PE kit in school every day in case we have an extra chance to do PE. We also have swimming every Wednesday. Please ensure your child brings their swimming kit on this day.
Home Learning – Home Learning is our ' P4C Question', which gives an opportunity to represent that concept in whichever way you would like to! Home Learning is sent home on Wednesday, and collected back on Monday.
Home Reading – Children need to bring their reading books and diaries every Monday to be checked and to ensure that they can be entered into the reading raffle. Please support your child by listening to them read and making a short comment in their diary. In Key Stage 2, children are responsible for changing their own book once they have finished it.
Accelerated Reader - As well as getting their reading record signed, once a book has been finished, children are expected to complete the corresponding quiz on Accelerated Reader.
Fact Fluency - In order to help fill in gaps in your child’s knowledge, your child will be learning some fundamental maths facts that underpin many areas of number – we call these the “Skeleton Keys”.
Your child will be working on multiplication and division facts for the 3 times table.
For example, knowing 8 x 4 = 32 means you also know 32 ÷ 4 = 8. Understanding this relationship between the multiplication and division will make other areas of maths, such as fractions, make sense.
Uniform – Please make sure your child’s uniform, PE kit and coat is clearly labelled. Jewellery is not allowed in school except for simple stud earrings.
