 Week ending 17th May 2019:

Over the last two weeks, we have been extremely busy completing our SATs 'quizzes' and have been amazed by the children's excellent focus and resilience. To show how delighted we were with their attitude, we celebrated with an ice lolly on Thursday. Yummy!

We are all looking forward to next week's trip to Folly Farm. If you haven't completed your ParentMail permission slip, please do so. Without this, your child cannot attend on Tuesday and will have to remain in school. We are a little worried that the weather will not be kind to us, so please make sure your child has sensible outdoor shoes or wellies to wear and a waterproof coat. They will also need a backpack for their snack, lunch and water bottle. Registration will be at 8.30am in the classroom before we set off for the coach.

Next week, our English work will be based on our trip as we will be creating a recount text around the key events of the day. The children will be looking closely at a modelled text and drawing out the key features needed for recount writing, before planning and writing their own texts.

In Maths, we will be revising fractions. We will be exploring how to find a 1/2, 1/4 or 1/3 of an amount using concrete resources to help. If the children are feeling confident, they will move on to finding 3/4 of an amount and applying their knowledge through reasoning tasks.

Don't forget to make use of Doodle Maths! There is a school expectation that children will try to spend at least 10 minutes on Doddle Maths a minimum of 3 times a week. It is a wonderful resource and we are already seeing an impact on learning within the classroom. If you do not have the necessary technology at home, let us know and we can arrange for your child to complete sessions within the school day. Many thanks.

Have a lovely weekend.
