Weekly Timetable

Termly forcast

Welcome to Fox class from Ms Caldwell and Mrs Johnson.

 

After our first topic of the BFG which I believe the children thoroughly enjoyed, creating their own Frobscottle, BFG cakes, potion poems and great wanted posters, they set upon the challenge of British Monarchs.

I must say they all embraced the research, fact files and tasting  all the delicious food they ate in Tudor times.

Our first topic this term is the Romans and how they have impacted on Britain.

We will be dressing up, marching, creating the Roman Turtle and visiting Fishbourne palace . We have visitors such as Navy Lieutenant Commander Lumsden to tell us about the forces today and the similarities and differences to Roman times and Aesops Theatre company taking the children back in time.

We are immersing ourselves in the Roman theme reading I was there- Boudicca's Army writing diaries and Newspaper reports, putting the children deeply back in Roman times.

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. We will be learning new methods of Multiplication such as column and numbers lines and bus stop method for division.

 

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 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.

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 play the ukulele this term.

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."
