Happy New Year to you all

I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and have enjoyed spending time together.

This term we have a busy term as always. 

In maths we are continuing to develop our maths mastery skills and we will be focusing on multiplication and division, subtraction and addtion and fractions.

In literacy, we will be writing our very own survival guide and will be using the book 'The Lost Book of Adventures' by Teddy Keen as our inspiration.  In addtion to this, we will be continuing to develop our punctuation and grammar knowledge focusing on tense, different clauses and speech.

Our history topic this term focuses in the history of flight and in geography, we will be focusing on the importance of the rainforests.

Science will start off with Evolution which will be followed by

Music - the children are developing their knowledge of musical terms and their appreciation of music.

Computing - here we will using a programme called Tinker Cad

Art - This term the children will be developing their painting skills and using the artist Van Gogh as inspiration for their pieces.

DT - The children will be developing their knowledge of structures and designing and building a playground.


Welcome to Autumn Term 2

I hope you had a great half term and have enjoyed spending time together as a family.  I went to Disneyland Paris with my husband and son and we had a wonderful but very tiring time!

Autumn 2 is always a crazy but fun time of the year.  We will soon be starting our Christmas production and we have the lovely task of making recyclable Christmas decorations and decorating a tree in Chester Cathedral so make sure you go along and have a look at our beautiful work.  We are also learning Christmas songs in our singing sessions with Ken on a Monday afternoon.

I well as all the exciting Christmas activities we have coming up, we will be continuing to learn about the Shang Dynasty in history and changes in global population in geography.  We have finished place value and we are now looking at methods for addition, subtraction and multiplication.  We have nearly completed writing our flashback narratives so we will be starting an exciting new text soon (I will keep it under wraps for now though!)

Mrs Garnham will continue to work in Class 3 on a Wednesday afternoon covering my PPA time.  She will be doing a mixture of computing sessions looking at e-safety and PSHCE lessons.  Mrs Kinsey will also continue in Class 3 on a Thursday whilst I am doing my SENDco role.  She will be teaching the children art, RE and French.

Please remember

1) PE kits for Fridays - there are a few of you who keep forgetting.

2) Learn your spellings - there are a number of you who fail to learn your spellings every week.
