Topic 3

This term our literacy work has been based upon the book 'Charlie and the Chocolate factory'. We have used the film to create ideas for our own factory and characters. We used inverted commas to demark speech and this helped us create a very good narrative story.

To follow this we have moved onto instructions where we have begun to design our own chocolate bar.

In maths we have now completed working on all four operations and looking at the inverse. We are using our skills now to solve a variety of problems.

At the end of this topic we will begin to celebrate and work towards Christmas - very exciting!

Topic 2

During this time we have been using the text 'Pebble in My Pocket'. This developed our science and geographical knowledge, whilst we followed the journey of the pebble. We began to learn about volcanoes and described them using some wonderful language. We then moved onto the journey of our own pebble and where it landed over a long period of time.

In maths we have been working on a variety of tasks. We have learnt our shape names and have used them in co-ordinate grids. We have also been building our knowledge of place value and written methods along with continued work on our multiplication tables.

Topic 1

The beginning of this term will be based upon the Victorian era. We will begin with looking at Oliver Twist, moving onto the Chimney Child (Text) and finishing with finding out about Octavia Hill (Who came from Wisbech!).

In maths, we are working on our number and place value in the morning and shape in the afternoon. Obviously we will be looking at tables on a daily basis.

It is a busy term but I know we are all just going to be enjoying being back together in the classroom.

Welcome Back Kingfishers!

I am so pleased to be back in the classroom and to see you all.

Our timetable is now set and we plan to do PE lessons on Tuesday and Wednesday. Therefore, on these days you will be required to wear your outdoor PE kit and others day you come in your school uniform.

We do continue to keep our classrooms well ventilated so remember to bring a cardigan/jumper or coat in case you need it.

As we are keeping all our belongings in the classroom we do ask that you only bring a lunch and drinks bottle. There is limited space available so the less you bring the more space we will have for learning.

Homework will continue to come home on a Friday and be required to be returned the following Friday. This will allow 7 full days for you to complete the one piece of numeracy and one piece of literacy. I am not currently sending any reading homework home so please try to keep reading books of your choice from home. Reading for pleasure is so important.

Our planner is a great way of communicating so please feel free to write any notes in there and when we have seen them we will sign it to say the message has been received.
