Welcome back to school everyone after a lovely Easter break!

This half term in Literacy we shall be concentrating on poems that play with words, so riddles, tongue twisters, shape poems etc.. We will also look at different stories by the same author.

In numeracy we continue with thinking about what each digit in a number means – it’s place value- is it a hundred? A ten? A unit? Ordering and writing and reading numbers to at least one hundred. Ant group up to 500 or more! We shall be studying 2 and 3d shapes, revising time – knowing our units of time, and reading digitial and analogue clocks. We will be looking at capacity and what we use to measure liquids.

Our geography topic is our local area, religious education will be looking at Sikhism and our design and technology subject is moving pictures – pop up work, the children will learn the name of, and make, a variety of mechanisms.

In science we shall be studying forces, what is a push? What is a pull? What about friction?

Remember that PE is on Wednesday and Friday and PE kit must be brought in so that no one misses out. The spelling test is on Friday morning, new spellings given out by Monday afternoon. Homework is given out on Friday and expected back in ready to be marked by Wednesday.

– I’d also like to add a welcome to Miss Phillips who will be joining us for most of the the summer term. She is a trainee teacher in her final year at Manchester University and will be completing her final block placement with us. I know she has got lots of exciting things planned so it’ll be great to have her as part of our family!
