The topic this term is called ‘Castles’ and we are all looking forward to visiting Durham Castle. We are also working very hard to prepare for SAT’s tests at the end of May.
In maths we will be applying all of our skills learnt in: place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and using these skills to understand the different relationships between them all. This is to ensure the children are prepared for our end of year tests.
In literacy we will be reading a new power of reading book called The Princess and the White Bear King. We will be taken on an enchanting journey throughout the story, empathising with the characters and understanding dilemmas characters are faced with.
We will continue to focus on SATS style questions in maths and literacy. Please ensure children are accessing their practise SAT’s booklets.
Extra Information / PE
PE lessons are every Wednesday, but we must stress to children and parents that it is best to keep PE kits in school all week to ensure your children don’t miss out on any other PE opportunities.
Book bags must be brought into school every day and reading books will be changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Can parents all ensure you spend at least 10 to 15 minutes each day reading with your child and initialling their reading record when completed.
* A reminder, books will not be changed unless they have been read or we feel your child will benefit from reading the same book again to build fluency and understanding.
