Our Amazing Teaching Staff:
Look what we have been up to recently...
Last term we have learned all about the States of Matter! This has been a science topic looking at what makes a solid liquid and a gas! We have investigated these states of matter and drawn conclusions from our own line graphs! We wrote terrific narratives based on Polar Bear Explorer's club. We also wrote about Shackleton's journey and enjoyed learning about the heroic adventures of the crew! You can see all our hard work below.

Each week your child will be set homework in the following areas:
- Reading - (see below)
- Maths - work linked to this weeks work in class
- Maths - key mental targets (see below to download a spare copy)
- Spelling - (see below to download a spare copy)
Reading at Home
Children will be expected to complete reading at home to an adult. The expected amount is at least 3 reads of 15 minutes per week it is vital that your child completes this as it supports the learning that takes place in the classroom
All reading at home should be recorded in the reading log book so that children can earn rewards for their efforts.
Spelling Homework Packs
Your child will have the appropriate sheets sent via the seesaw app but a spare copy can be downloaded here if you wish! Your child should only revise one sheet per week.
Maths Homework Packs - 2 Minute Challenges
To be tested each week - Your child will have the appropriate revision sheets on their seesaw app but a spare copy can be downloaded here if you wish! Your child should only revise one sheet per week.
