Welcome to Fox class from Ms Caldwell and Mrs Johnson.
Hope you all had a lovely break and managed to relax. This term our topic is all the fun of the fair. We will be reading the Firework Makers Daughter and The boy who swam with piranhas. We will be visiting the fun fair and finding out how the rides work, relating to forces, motion and friction. Fingers crossed we will also be looking after our own trout and watching them grow from eggs then hopefully releasing them in the river outside the school ( this is still being confirmed because the river is protected.)
In RE we will be looking at Jesus's miracles and within maths we will be looking at shape and measure.
Just a few things you will need to know
Please read with your children 4 x a week, so that they can earn a dojo. If your child is not reading at home this will hinder their progress.
PE is on a Monday and Wednesday - please make sure children have tracksuits as well as shorts and trainers/ plimsols THAT FIT ( we will be going outside if its dry).
Homework and spellings will go out on Fridays.
Spellings will be on Friday and homework needs to be in on Wednesdays, If homework is not completed for 2 weeks they will be expected to lose a break to complete it in.
Children are awarded house points for homework unless they have done above and beyond in which case dojo's will be given
We are learning to swim this term every Friday morning.
Class 3 have been investigating solids, liquids and gases
Luke "Liquids will take the shape of the container they
are in. We have been learning about the state of matter."
Daniel "Jago has got some soap that has viscosity
which means that the soap is thick and pours slowly."
Amellie "Everyone looked really carefully at the objects
with magnifying glasses and we also learnt a new word viscosity."
Hebe "Looking at the sugar through the magnifying glass
we could see mini crystals."
Luke "Sugar is a solid which can be poured and will take the
shape of the container when you shake it."
