Classroom News

English – in our English lessons we will be reading “Varjak Paw” by S.F. Said. It tells the story of a young cat who must learn “The way” – a secret martial art for cats!

Maths – In Maths lessons we will be continuing to develop confidence in: column addition and subtraction; mental arithmetic, multiplication tables up to 12; fractions and equivalent fractions, time both analogue and digital; 24hr clock and money.

Spellings – your child will continue to bring home spellings to learn. The spelling test is on a Friday each week.

Times tables – each day the children complete Terror Tables to practise their times tables and have a test on Fridays.

All children should have a reading book to take home everyday, along with their reading contact book. To make the best progress it is important that your child has an opportunity to read with an adult at home everyday for around 5 -10 minutes. We would be very grateful if you could record any home reading your child does in their reading contact book.

Thank you.

Topic - will be sent out on Friday, 20th April.

Please help your child complete at least 3 of the tasks given.

Topic homework is due in on Friday 18th May.

Many clubs are available after school including sports, so please ask at the office if your child is interested in taking part in any after school activities.

Reminder: please make sure your child has a PE kit in school everyday. Sometimes extra PE lessons are slotted in on different days other than their designated day.

Thank you for your continued support.

To be the best we can be
