This year, it is so important that children are completing weekly spellings, reading and homework at home to help them prepare for SATS. Children are expected to read 5 times over the week. Homework will be given out on a Monday and returned on a Friday. Spellings will occur through our new spelling scheme, please ask your children what the new spelling rule is this week! If, for any reason, children cannot complete their weekly homework/reading/spellings, please provide a reason in the child’s diary.

What a crazy week this week has been! We have all been working extra hard, especially with long multiplication and division - our most challenging unit in Maths so far! We also looked at micro-organisms in Science, which was very interesting for us all this week. We also had our individual and house team photos, don't forget to check these out when they are available to you. 

29.09.23

 

This week has been slightly different; we have had so many different teachers. Mr Richards, Mrs Johnson, Mrs Miles, Mrs Smith, Mrs Standring and Miss Ho all taught us this week, and we couldn't thank them enough! We have had some very interesting lessons this week, including renewable energy in Geography and classifying plants into vascular and non-vascular in Science. We have enjoyed every moment of it. Not only that, but Mr Richards added an amazing book to our bookshelf in class: 'Oh Maya Gods!' We cannot wait to start reading that soon!

22.09.23

 

What a fantastic week we have all had. It has been challenging, as we all had to complete a 'Mock SATs Week', but we all tried our best and now feel a little bit more prepared for things to come. One of the highlights we had this week was finding out about some of the issues the Maya Civilisation faced when settling in the rainforest. We discussed how they didn't have the correct tools for hunting and farming; we looked at some of the key features of the rainforest including the ancient Maya temples; and we enjoyed researching about potential solutions for these challenges. We are all looking forward to continuing this topic throughout the term.
