Both coaches are now full. If you have been contacted about helping, please remember to bring photo ID with you on the day of the trip.
Open afternoon: Friday 18th October (last day of term): All parents/carers are welcome to come into school from 2.45 to find out what the children have been learning during their topic on Flight. Please come in via the school office where you will be requested to sign in.
English: This week, the children have written a non-chronological report about the ‘Wright Brothers’. They have also researched facts about an animal, in preparation for writing a non-chronological report about it, next week.
Maths: In Maths this week, the children have been learning how to use money and add and subtract multiples. Year 2 children have been learning how to count and select money as well as learning how to add and subtract 1-digit numbers, whilst, Year 3 have been learning how to add and subtract a 3-digit number with; a 1-digit number and multiples of 10 and 100.
Design and Technology: Today, your child will be coming home with information about the flying machine that they will be making on our design and technology day next Friday. Please can you talk through their plan with them and how they will make it. Please can you also help them to source the materials they will need for their creations from home. You will not need to find thread, sticky tape, paint, card, paper, matchsticks and glue, as we have these at school. Any additional junk modelling materials you may also have been saving at home would be appreciated. These can be brought in in a named bag from Wednesday please. If you would be able to help out for the morning, please let your child’s class teacher know.
Maths: Please continue to complete 3 games of Times Tables Rockstars in the garage setting. This does not need to be recorded in their purple book because we can track the number of games they have completed online. If your child does not complete 3 games in the garage setting, it will look to us as if your child is not completing their homework.
Spelling: Please practice spelling 10 common exception words appropriate for your child’s year group. A copy of these can be found at the back of your child’s purple book and on our class page.
Reading: We expect each child to read five times a week. Please record this in the yellow reading log. Children who do so will receive 5 dojo points.
