Spring Term 2020
Welcome back. We hope you have had a lovely break and you are ready for a busy term ahead.
This term in Maths, we are learning about fractions. We will be looking at equivalent fractions as well as decimals. We are also looking at money and problem solving. 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.
In English, we are reading ‘The Pied Piper’ and completing a range of writing tasks alongside it. The topic will also tie in with our science topic ‘Sound’
In Science, we are learning all about Sound. We will be looking at how sound travels, how the ear works, pitch, volume and vibration.
We are lucky to have Mr Wilson coming in every Tuesday to do music with our class; we will be learning how to play the ukulele and other various musical techniques.
In our computing lessons, we are learning all about coding using Scratch.
In PSHCE, we are learning about how to become better citizens. We will be thinking about the community and the local environment.
On Wednesday afternoons, we go into the Art room where our teacher is Mrs Wilcock. During this time, we learn all about Religious Education (RE), Art and Design Technology (DT).
In RE we are learning about ‘What people believe about God’
In DT we are designing and making 3D Picasso guitar sculptures.
We will be rewarded with ‘Shadsworth Money’ (small paper coins) which we can save up and spend on a Friday in the school ‘Shadsworth Shop’ on a wide range of prizes for various amounts.
Please can you try to encourage your child to read for at least 15 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 is now on our website on our class page. Try to complete the reading, spelling and timetable activities each week. The other activities can be completed and then handed in at the end of each half term.
