This term in Maths, we are learning about working out fractions of amounts as well as how to plot and translate coordinates on quadrants.   We continue to have a weekly times-table test every Friday morning, so please continue to practise your tables at home. Remember to use TT Rockstars as well as Purple Mash to help with this.

 

In literacy we are studying 'The Promise' by Nicola Davies, completing a range of writing tasks alongside it. 

 

 

 

Geography, we are learning all about rivers. We will use maps to locate the major river in the United Kingdom, whilst also investigating

 how river change over time, encompassing various uses of rivers and how they are formed. During this topic we will also be  going on a trip to Edisford Bridge.

 

We are lucky to still have Mr Wilson coming in every Tuesday this year to do music with our class; we will continue to learn how to play the ukulele, sing songs and carry out other various musical techniques.

 

In our computing lessons we will be using Purple Mash to improve our computing skills.

 

In PSHCE, we will be looking at our rights and responsibilities focusing on our local area and community.

 

On Wednesday afternoons we  go into the Art room to be taught by Mrs Barnes. During this time, we learn all about Religious Education (RE), Art and Design Technology (DT).

In RE we are learning about why do people believe in God.

In Art we looking at the artist Picasso and making our own guitar sculptures.

Reading Books

Please can you try to encourage your child to read for at least five minutes each night. Reading bags should be brought into school each day so that they have an opportunity to be listened to in class.

 

PE is every Monday, so please make sure your child has a full kit.

Homework will be given out every Friday and is to be handed in by Wednesday the following week.

Please visit our class page for weekly updates, resources and online links to help your child with their learning.

Science - Sound insulation experiment

We filled boxes with different materials such as sponge, paper towel, cotton wool and tin foil to see which one ‘muffled’ sound the best. We used dataloggers to record the decimals (dB) which were produced, we concluded that cotton wool was the best sound insulator and would therefore be the material most suited to be used in sound-proofing.

We are having lots of fun learning to play the ukulele!
