Welcome to Fox class from Ms Caldwell and Mrs Johnson.
We hope your children are as excited as we are for the year ahead we have plenty of ideas for fun and challenging learning.
Our first topic is based on the BFG, the children are creating their own reading area, as well as using the text to help them with algorithms, descriptive writing, poetry and story writing.
We will be looking at our kings and Queens since 1066 and the children will be choosing who they would like to find out more about.
Within Maths we will be challenging the children in a number of areas, this half term everything is number based. Children need to be able to explain HOW they work things out and explain WHY they have used the different strategies.
Just a few things you will need to know
Please read with your children 4 x a week, so that they can earn a merit. If your child is not reading at home this will hinder there 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.
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."
