Thank you so much for coming to see the children perform ‘The Pied Piper’ last week. We absolutely loved having you in school and hope you enjoyed it just as much as we did. We are extremely proud of each and every one of the children, they worked so hard over the term and it really paid off.

 

Extreme Heat: Please choose suitable uniform and make sure your child has a water bottle, hat and sunscreen as the beginning of this week is going to be very hot. We will change our days accordingly and follow our risk assessments.

Can your child please bring in a bag to bring work home on Monday. Your children will be bringing home their work books and other work from the year next week at some point. We will be keeping a small sample for each class. Your teacher will let you know if this is for your child. They will be returned to you at the end of the Autumn Term.

This week:

We will always aim to get outside, whatever the weather, as much as possible so children will really need a waterproof coat each day.

Maths

This week in maths we will revisit measurement and apply our knowledge of mass, capacity and volume to measure out ingredients to make a fridge cake. We will also look once more at length and height and bring something home to share with you to show you what we have been learning. 

Knowledge and Understanding of the World (Topic)

History

We will be learning about the amazing travels of Ibn Battuta this week. Starting with his journey to Mecca on his first hajj and how a 16 month journey ended up lasting 24 years! We will be looking at the countries he visited and creating our own maps of his journey.
