Look what we've been up to recently ...
Last term we learned about the Victorians! We went on a visit to Cannon Hall and wore costumes from the period to get us into character! We had a great time in the house and kitchen! We loved learning about shape in maths and enjoyed our PE sessions too!
Look at some of our pictures...

Reading at Home & Online
Children are given regular weekly homework (the expected amount is 4 reads per week) it is vital that your child completes this as it supports the learning that takes place in the classroom
Children can now access reading books online. The class teacher will have set up reading books online at each child's current book band. Login details will have been given to each child at the start of the year. Click the image above to link to the 'Bug Club' website.
All reading at home should be recorded in the reading log book so that children can earn rewards for their efforts.
English & Maths Homework Books
Different Pages will be set each week to reinforce work we have covered in class
Maths Homework Packs - 2 Minute Challenges
To be tested each week - Your child will have the appropriate revision sheets in their homeowkr folder, but a spare can be downloaded here if you wish! Your child should only revise one sheet per week.
Further Homework Support
Purple Mash is a fantastic resource that allows your child to word process, create images, create code and much much more. Every child has a login for Purple Mash and this can be used both at school and at home. Please click on the image above to link to this site.
Please ask your child's teacher if you require a new username and password.
Additional times table challenges can be created from the website below.
