Welcome back to an exciting term, following our half term break.  Hopefully you have all enjoyed a restful break. This term will continue to be a fun filled one with plenty of learning opportunities: in the outdoors- weather permitting.

 

In Maths we will continue to develop our reasoning and problem solving, as well as continuing to practice our arithmetic- on arithmetic Friday. Year 6 will have the opportunity to participate in using maths to solve real life problems, whilst Year 5 will continue to build upon their mathematical knowledge by re-visiting parts of the National Curriculum to ensure they have a firm understanding of these concepts.

 

Topic work will continue to be based upon The Ancient Egyptians and will allow the children plenty of opportunity to be creative.  They will  discover what life was like in Ancient Egypt and find out about the role of mummification and the discovery of Tutankhamun. Using skills from across the curriculum, the children, at their request, will conduct independent learning in topic work- allowing them to build upon their knowledge and apply their creativity. I am looking forward to seeing the work they produce.

 

Mrs Rhodes will continue to teach the children art this term and will be focusing upon the key skills necessary. In R.E we will also continue to investigate how religion is demonstrated through  the arts. The children will have the opportunity to participate in the NATRE Spirited Arts competition.

 

 The children will continue to have spellings  homework. It would be extremely beneficial to your child if you could continue to support them with this and encourage them to continue to read at home, especially focusing upon a variety. This will help to build upon vocabulary skills. I have been extremely impressed with the effort the children have applied to their homework over the past terms and they should be very proud of this.

This term the children will have a different type of homework. They will be asked to produce a 'book in a box' project for presentation in the penultimate week of term- please keep a look out for more details of this to follow. The children will also be asked to complete a bean diary and grow their own plant. They will be expected to take care of their plant and make careful observations. This will assist with their learning within science. Spelling tests will be conducted on a Wednesday and it is important that your child applies their full efforts with these- please remember they have been given a list of year 3/4 and 5/6 words, which they are expected to be able to confidently spell by the end of year 6.

 

 

Please feel free to discuss any area of the curriculum with me at the beginning or end of each school day.

Class 3 have had  a lovely day- dressing as evacuees and bringing four items with them for their journey to their new homes in Devon. They painted landscapes, wrote postcards home and baked some delicious war time biscuits. They really embraced the era when they had to hide under their desks every time they heard an air raid siren and listened to popular war time songs- discussing their meaning. This brought to a close a very enjoyable topic- A Child's War.

Class 3 have worked very hard to produce some fantastic projects, based on our topic- A Child's War.

Class 3 enjoying taking part in an afternoon of science to celebrate science week. They participated in four investigations and particularly enjoyed discovering about non- Newtonian liquid.

Class 3 enjoyed making pancakes and eating them! This helped us to apply our knowledge of measure.

Class 3 had great fun making sausage rolls to celebrate Lincolnshire day. They used their maths skills to estimate when measuring-great mathematical discussions developed! The rest of the school enjoyed sampling the sausage rolls in the afternoon!
