Summer 2017

We have many exciting things planned for this term including our work on fantasy writing for the Wargrave Festival 'Is there anything out there?' writing competition.  

We will be discovering the Seven Wonders of the World as we learn what is out there on our amazing planet and exploring light and shadows in our science topic.

After half term we will be doing a local history topic and will have a sports week focusing on healthy minds and healthy bodies, as well as learning all about eating a balanced, nutritious diet. 

Don't forget to have your PE kit in school every day and then hopefully we can take advantage of all the lovely weather we are sure to have over the coming months!

On Monday 20th February, Community Police Officer Bird came to talk to us about keeping safe.  We were reminded about crossing the road safely, keeping safe when cycling (always wear a helmet!) and how to keep safe when using the internet.  Please remember to only go online with an adults permission and to only use apps and websites which are suitable for your age.  Always check the PEGI rating on computer games and never play online with strangers.

 

Reading

Every day we will have a guided reading session but you will also have opportunities to read your own book.  This can be chosen from our school library or brought from home.  Make sure you read a range of different books to keep things interesting.  

Keep your reading record up to date to show what you have read and who you have read to at home.  Aim to read to an adult at home every day.

P.E.

Outdoor P.E will be on a Monday afternoon and on a Thursday afternoon.  Please make sure you have the correct kit in school on these days.

 

Maths Homework

 

This half term, most maths homework will be completed on Mathletics.  www.mathletics.com

Please log on and complete the tasks set.

If you don't have access to a computer at home, speak to Mrs Pontet and we can arrange a time in school to complete the work.

 

Spelling homework - Summer 2017

This term you will be choosing 5 words from the statutory lists or from your own writing each week which you will be expected to learn for a test the following week.  Please keep your folder up to date!
