Weekly Update – Thursday 25th May
Dates for your diary:
Wednesday 7th June – Crooklets beach clean trip – VOLUNTEERS still needed!
Email your child’s class teacher if you can help. See letter below for more details.
English: This week we have looked at alliteration, adjectives and rhyme. We have planned, written and edited poems based around the book Sticky McStick stick by Michael Rosen.
Maths: We have been learning about statistics. At the beginning of the week we counted how many cars travelled on the A39 in 5 minutes, putting this information into a tally chart. We then used this data to produce pictograms and bar graphs.
Geography/computing: In Geography, we have continued to write up non-chronological reports about rivers using the Chromebooks.
RE: This week we have been thinking about the Jewish celebration of Rosh Hashanah tasting new food again! This week we tasted apples, honey, pomegranate seeds and ate some more Challah bread.
Dance: We put all the steps and moves we have been learning about together and performed as a whole class.
Beach Trip: Our walking trip to Crooklets Beach will take place on Wednesday 7th June. If you haven’t already ordered a lunch for your child, please do so or state if you will be providing a lunch from home. Please also consent to collecting your child at 3pm from Crooklets car park on this day. Children will need to wear normal school uniform and appropriate footwear according to the weather. Please send children with a hat as we’ll be outside for the majority of the day and make sure they have got sunscreen on if the hot weather continues. They will also need a small rucksack to carry their lunch in and a water bottle. We will be leaving school promptly so please arrive at school on time. Children do not need their book bags on this day.
Reading: We expect children to read at least 5 times a week and record this in their yellow log.
Maths: We expect the children to practise their Times Table Rock stars for at least 10 minutes each week.
Spelling: Please practise spelling common exception words at least three times a week.
Have a great weekend and half term, be safe and we look forward to seeing you all on the 5th June.
Mr Seldon and Mrs Carpenter
