Welcome to Fox class from Ms Caldwell, Mrs Johnson and Ms Sims.
Hope you all had a lovely break and managed to relax. Last term the children seemed to thoroughly enjoy the Egyptian topic and learnt a lot about the gods, beliefs and lifestyles and history of the people and country. I hope this term will be just as exciting!
This term we will be looking at Volcanoes and mountains within geography. We will be reading Escape from Pompeii which will cover a bit of history and help us create our own poems. The children will then use our new seesaw app to record themselves acting out their poems and drama performances. We will cover rocks and soils, states of matter and the water cycle in Science and then volcanoes. We will even be creating our own volcanoes for us to investigate how we can make them erupt.
In RE we will be looking at Passover and Easter through art.
With the Hampshire music service we will be learning to play the recorder..
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 - please make sure children have tracksuits as well as shorts and trainers/ plimsols THAT FIT ( we will be going outside if its dry).
Swimming will start on Friday morning 11th January 2019.
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
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."
