Welcome to our class page! This is the main page, that we will update with what we are doing for the half-term.
We hope that you have had a lovely break over the half-term. Our PE days will be on Monday and Wednesday this half-term. The sports we will focus on this half-term are football on a Monday and tennis on Tuesday. The children can still come to school in their PE clothes. Their PE kit needs to include trainers, house colour t-shirt, black shorts and a black jumper.
In literacy, this half-term we are going to start off with a recap on some of the grammar we have learnt in readiness for our new topic. We will be looking at 'The Magic Paintbrush' by Julia Donaldson, which is a lovely book. We will delve into different parts of the story, concentrating on writing quality, short paragraphs before moving onto independently planning and writing their own story in the same theme.
In maths, we will start by looking at time before moving onto shape and geometry. The children are working fantastically in maths, working methodically and using resources successfully.
We will also start a new, short science topic called 'May the Force be with you'. This focusses on forces, magnets and the use of play to investigate their findings.
