In Literacy Lady Macbeth is up to her old tricks! We have been looking at how she can persuade Macbeth to seize the crown!

In Maths Mr.Askew has been looking at fractions; equivalent and ordering fractions. Mr.Kerray has been looking at number bonds to 20 and beyond using the'inverse' operation to illustrate subtraction.

Our computing session has shown a continuation of the Scratch program providing challenges to illustrate how our skills are developing. 

In RE the children have been using their 'investigation' skills looking closely at the key components of the illustration.

Mr. Reeves continues his work on the ukulele, where new chords are being added every week. The children should have brought their ukulele home this week.

In art we are continuing to make more simple Victorian toys.

History this week continues to look at the Victorian period in more depth: we had a special guest of honour this week,Queen Victoria. She invited us all to an audience with her and served up afternoon tea;with Victorian sponge of course!

Forest schools is proving to be good fun with Mrs Carroll at the helm! Another week of outdoor problem solving.

There is mathematics and English homework this week. Could this please be handed in on Wednesday so the following weeks homework can be added.

Reminders.
  • Remember to continue reading daily with your child, 10 minutes daily practice will really help them to improve. You could also discuss together the book you have read, again this is an important reading skill that the children need to develop. Please keep signing your child's journal to indicate that you have read with your child. Many thanks.
  • Please bring PE kits into school on Monday, we will send them home on Friday.  
Many thanks for your support, Mr Askew and Mr Kerray
