Homework is due on Wednesdays. Please ensure reading books and reading records are in class every day.
Homework includes a list of spellings, an Abacus Maths activity every week, and 2 topic related tasks throughout each half term. It is important that pupils who are unable to accomplish these tasks at home seek in school support.
In the first term's topic 'Urban Pioneers' children were asked to research their town or city. They then had to persuade people to come and visit. In our current topic 'Mighty Metals' children will need to find and identify the different metals that they have in their home.
There is new Abacus homework, as well as their spelling.
In Autumn 1 'Urban Pioneers', the children focused on writing letters using the book 'The Day the crayons quit' by Oliver Jeffers. We also learnt about graffiti artist Banksy, what our community looks like and focused on light and shadows in science. During Autumn 2 'Mighty Metals', the children are reading 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes writing character descriptions, poetry and newspaper reports. We will also find out about different types of metals and learn about forces and magnetism in science. Please engage with your children, at home, about the themes that we’re learning in school to encourage them to delve deeper and discover more.
