Week beginning the 31st October

In Maths this week, we will begin looking at fractions, both of shape and of number and making sure we can solve mathematical and word problems involving fractions. If you can help you child with dividing objects into groups, it will really help.
In English, we are beginning a new topic about stories from another culture. We will be beginning a new novel, “The Firework-Makers Daughter” by Philip Pullman. The children will also have an English teacher, Miss Hind, coming in to teach the children poetry on Thursday morning, which should make poetry interesting for the class.
This week we begin a new topic all about the animals and plants in our local area. Please take the opportunity to look at all the wild things that grows or visits your home and any local parks you visit.
I hope everyone has had a good half term and has been reading at home or on holiday. Please make sure your children read at least 4 times a week. We were getting better at doing this, so please make sure that each time your child reads with you, you sign their homework diary. Thank you, Mr Bradley.

Week beginning 17th October

In Maths next week, we will be looking again at division and making sure we can solve mathematical problems and word problems. If you can help you child with dividing objects into groups, it will really help (especially with remainders).
In English, we will be continuing our historical novels, “The Thieves of Ostia” by Caroline Lawrence. The children finished writing a Roman story of their own this week so we will try to post some on the blog. We shall have an English teacher coming in to teach the children on a Thursday morning, which should add more interest for the class.
Next week is our second topic week on sound. We will be looking at how we make sounds and how we hear. Anyone musical please ask me about bringing in a musical instrument.
This week, a number of people didn’t read enough at home. Please keep making sure your children read at least 4 times a week. We were getting better at doing it so please make sure that each time they read with you, you sign their homework diary. Thank you, Mr Bradley.
