Welcome back after our Autumn break, I hope you all had a relaxing and fun-filled time!
This half term our focus will be 'Marvellous Materials' and is a science-based topic. We will be looking a the properties of various materials and be thinking scientifically about fair and comparitive testing to give evidence for the particular use of everyday materials.
We will continue to read 'Carrie's War' by Nina Bowden and our guided reading sessions will be based on this book.
We usually do P.E. on Tuesdays and Thursdays but please continue to ensure P.E. kit is in school everyday, This half term we will focus on netball and circuits. I t is useful for the children to have their outdoor P.E. kit as stipulated in the school prospectus so we can play games outside.
Homework is given out on Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. Thank you for supporting your child with homework, not only does it help to embed their learning but is great preparation for secondary school . Details of our creative homework afternoon have been sent by parent mail and we have discussed in class, I do hope you enjoy creating together and I look forward to seeing the finished results!
