Our topic this term is What makes the earth angry? We will answer questions such as what makes a volcano erupt? How are earthquakes measured? Which countries have experienced a tsunami in my lifetime? This will link well with our science topic on Rocks.
This term our class book is called 'Cloudland' by John Burningham. See our newsletter for more information.
Keep using your Rock Star Maths login to help your child to practise their times tables on-line at home.
A sample of their class tables work will come home on a Tuesday so that you can see which times table they are currently working on in school.
Talk about Maths!
Encourage your child to talk about the numbers around them: "What time it it?" "How long do you think it will take us to walk to ...?" "How tall is that building?" "How much is the shopping?"
What's the time?
Spellings are tested on a Thursday. Please keep supporting your child in using a range of methods to practice these at home. Find out what works best for them.
This term we are learning about Hinduism. We will find out about the holy books, how Hindus worship in everyday life, for example dance and henna. (Please expect a letter about this). We will discuss links with our own life choices e.g. vegetarianism.
Glossary for Parents
Here I have included a downloadable document which explains all the terminology we use in school. Your children are expected to understand and use this vocabulary when discussing their work. Hope this helps!

All children will have the opportunity to independently change their books, please make sure you read with your child every day for at least 10 minutes :)
Our P.E days are Tuesday and Thursday Please make sure children have their correct PE kits with them every week.
It is vital that the children stay hydrated throughout the day. Please ensure that your child has a named water bottle in school, which can be kept in the classroom and accessed freely throughout the day. Access to the water fountain will be at play times an lunch times.
