Week Beginning 2nd October

In Maths next week, we will be looking at multiplication and making sure we can solve mathematical problems and word problems.
In English, we will be continuing our historical novels, “The Thieves of Ostia” by Caroline Lawrence, which the children seem to be enjoying. The books series was turned into a series of TV programmes made by the BBC and was “The Roman Mysteries.”
On a connected theme, next week we will be making Roman mosaics in art.
Can I ask you all to make sure your children read at least 4 times a week. Please make sure that each time they read, their homework diary needs to be signed. Thank you, Mr Bradley

Week Beginning 26th September

Hello all. Finally found a way to blog (problems with the internet and passwords have hampered me thus far).
Next week in Maths, we will be looking at subtraction and making sure we can solve mathematical problems and word problems.
In English, we will begin looking at historical novels. The novel we will focus on is “The Thieves of Ostia” by Caroline Lawrence, which is based in ancient Rome.
On a connected theme, next week will be our last week of our Romans topic, though the following week we will be making some Roman mosaics in art.
Can I take this opportunity to say a big “Hello” and ask you all to make sure your children read at least 4 times a week. Please make sure that each time they read, their homework diary needs to be signed. Thank you, Mr Bradley

Games With The High School

Hello for the first time this year from year 4. Technical problems have caused a late start to blogging so far this September.

Today, we had a PE teacher come from the high school to show us how to throw, catch and mark an attacker. We could do this lesson at the high school where they have far more impressive equipment, but to do so we need 4 adult volunteers to walk with the class for the the next 5 weeks to Golborne High School. If not, then we will continue to have the high school teacher visit us here at St Thomas’. If you would like to volunteer, contact Mr Bradley or the office as soon as possible. Thank you.
