Look what we've been up to recently ...
Last half term our main topic focused around Rivers and the geography of our local area. We learnt about the features of a river and what they are used for. We then used this information to make comparisons between the River Nile, which we studied last half term, and our local river- The River Aire. We were also lucky enough to have Yorksire Water come visit us and explain the process of how they clean water, we also walked to our local river to conduct a fieldwork investigation.
Look at some of our pictures...

Homework this year will be all provided on our online platform seesaw. Each child will be given a unique passcode or QR code to scan. This will allow them to access weekly (differentiated) homework provided by their teachers.
Each week your child will be set homework in the following areas:
- Maths - work linked to this weeks work in class
- Maths - key mental targets (see below to download a spare copy)
- GPS (Grammar/Punctuation/Spelling)
Reading at Home
Children will also be expected to cpmplete reading at home to an adult. The expected amount is at least 4 reads of 20 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.
Maths Homework Packs - 2 Minute Challenges
To be tested each week - Your child will have the appropriate revision sheets uploaded to their seesaw home learning space, but a spare can be downloaded here if you wish! Your child should only revise one page per week.
