Aspen and Hawthorn Weekly Update – 1st December 2023
Dates for your diary:
We and the children are very much looking forward to welcoming you to our Christmas Singalong with mince pies next Friday. Please book your tickets on the app. Each child has an allocation of 2 tickets which are non-exchangeable. If you do not have the app, please let the office know and they can ensure your tickets are allocated. The performance starts at 2 so please ensure you are seated by this time.
Please could children bring in a Christmas jumper or Christmas T-shirt/shirt to wear for the singalong? A smart top would be fine if they don’t have one.
Our learning this week:
English: In our English lessons, the children’s learning was centred around the story of The Tear Thief. They investigated personification, simile and metaphor and were introduced to the poem Meeting with Midnight which they used as inspiration for their own poems using the features learned earlier in the week.
Maths: This week, the children continued with our unit on multiplying and dividing by learning about multiples of 2, 5 and 10, and then grouping and sharing before moving on to learn how to multiply and divide by 3.
Science: The children used the knowledge they have acquired in our recent science lessons to design a magnetic game this week.
CEREAL BOXES - For our science next week, the children need cereal boxes to create their games. If you have any cereal boxes ready for recycling, please send them in with your child on Monday.
Reading: We expect children to read 5 times per week. Year 3 children can write their own home reading in their yellow logs. Book bags should be brought into school daily please.
Times Table Rock Stars: The children need to complete their TTRS homework each week. We expect children in Year 3 to spend at least 15 minutes on TTRS each week.
Spelling: We are now using the 'Spelling Shed' website for our spelling homework. 5 spelling games will be set based on the week’s learning.
If your child is learning on the RWI programme, they now have their own Spelling Shed log ins. These will be stuck into their yellow reading logs. They are expected to complete 5 games per week and these will be based on the spellings that they need to practise.
