PE

PE will be on Tuesdays & Thursdays so you will need to come to school in your PE kit on those days.  

 

Home Reading

Don't forget to read regularly at home and post your comments onto Showbie. Books will be changed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. 

 

Homework & Spellings

Homework and spellings will be uploaded onto Showbie every Friday. The spelling test will take place the following Friday so the children have a full week to learn them. 

 

Maths

In Maths, we will develop our understanding of place value using Maths No Problem. The children are currently learning their 2x, 5x and 10x tables so any extra practice at home would be helpful.

This half term, our topic is mainly Science based. We will be learning about all living things and their habitats. We will discuss whether things are alive, dead or never alive. We will have a look at different animal habitats and microhabitats. Finally, we will learn about animal food chains.
