ADVANCE WARNING: 

Thursday 3rd March is World Book Day! To celebrate this day which acknowledges the importance of reading for pleasure, we have some exciting events for you to join in with:

  • Dress up as your favourite book character!
  • Bring in a printed photo of you reading a book that makes you smile (please make sure we can see the cover). If there is special meaning behind your story e.g. a family favourite or one that reminds you of a special time or event, please feel free to bring in a short explanation to share. 
  • Check out our school YouTube channel to enjoy listening to stories read by our wonderful staff team.

Homework:

Our homework sharing day will be in the last week of Term 4. 

Week 6 celebrations:

The children have really enjoyed our story of the week ‘the Way Back Home’. They created some beautiful story maps to help retell the events from the story in the right order.

The children loved our science investigation – ROCKET MICE. If you would like to recreate this investigation at home with your children you can see what resources you will need here: https://learning.sciencemuseumgroup.org.uk/resources/rocket-mice/

The children were asked to predict what would happen on a post it note. They had to record their results on a whiteboard and present them in whatever way they chose. We then collated everything we found out on our class whiteboard.


Here are some pictures and videos of our investigation:

The children’s findings.

Reading:

This week we will be making sure children are fully equipped for reading over half term by sending home the usual reading books as well as reminding children how they can access Bug Club books online.

Phonics:              

We continue daily blending revision to help us apply our segmenting and blending skills to unfamiliar words.

Spelling and Grammar (SPAG):

Please see below for our termly plan. Editing will be included as part of our exciting free writing this week and your children may come home and tell you about how they are using COPS to edit:

Writing:

In writing this week we are continuing with our key text – ‘The Way Back Home’ by Oliver Jeffers. 

The children will be retelling the story by writing the story in their own words, illustrating each section as they go.                                           

Maths

This week in maths, we are continuing and finishing our block of learning about measure. We will be building on prior learning and applying our use of the four operations to measurement.

Knowledge and Understanding of the World (Topic)

We will be making our models in DT this week. We will measure and compare the distance the models are able to move and we will evaluate the process and end product of our designs. 

Religion and World Views

In R + WV we are continuing with our miracle booklets, learning about the miracle of Jesus healing a blind man. 

PSHE

In PSHE we will be reflecting back on this Dreams and Goals piece of learning. We will be discussing how we have worked collaboratively with other people to achieve goals and whether this was a positive process or how it could be improved.
