What a lovely Easter it has been! We are hoping the Summer term is going to be just as exciting.
This term we will be continuing to practice column addition and column subtraction in Maths. We are getting very good at using it to help us and will continue to apply it to help us solve problems. We will continue to use a range of resources to support our progress. Keep revising your 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8 times tables and learning the rest (6,7,9,11,12) will prepare you well for Year 4.
We will start the term with a 'BANG' and dive straight into our 'Natural Disasters' topic - writing newspaper reports on the devastating events that can occur. Later in the term, we will be reading the fantastic 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' by Philip Pullman. This will support us in writing our exciting descriptive narratives and recounts using the story to focus our ideas
In Science we will be looking at how we see light and why it is needed. We will investigate how different materials react to light
Please make sure your PE kit is definitely in school from a Monday and stays in for the week. As this is a short term, we may not always do P.E on the same day each week so having kit in school will help everyone join in.
Our Forest School days are: Wednesday 1st May and Thursday 9th May. Please make sure your child brings in suitable clothes, a waterproof coat and wellies. Although it is warming up, children will still need extra layers in case they get wet (particularly wellies and thick socks).
We have two Bank Holidays on Monday 23rd April and Monday 6th May and an INSET day on Friday 24th May.
Please continue to read with your child every day at home and practise spellings and times tables. We now have a times table test and spellings test every Friday. The words and dates are listed below.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns and thank you for your support!
