This half term we have got lots of exciting things happening! We are going to be basing our topic around The Amazon Rainforest and Rio De Janiero.
In literacy we are also doing lots of work linked to Th Amazon Rainforest including designing and producing a fact file on a poison dart frog, writing a short story and producing a recount from a Rio festival!
In maths we will be continuing work related to place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, money, time, fractions, decimals and lots of measures and chart work! As well as using concrete objects we will be using lots of pictures and word problems to solve answers and become super mathematicians!
In our science lessons we are conducting lots of fun experiments and investigations linked to plants. We will be working as a team, making predictions and logging our outcomes.
Our history, geography and art lessons will also be linked to our new topic! We also have a very extensive homework menu with lots of fun activities for the children to complete at home.
During PE we are doing lots of games involving teamwork, co-ordination, accuracy and communication. Our focus this half term will be rounders. Our PE is on a Friday, but please make sure PE kit is brought in on a Monday and left in school all week in case we get to do another PE session! PE kits should be taken home very Friday and brought back on Monday's.
As well as this we also have an ICT slot every week where we work on our ICT skills to help generate programmes, design posters and develop our ICT skills!
To be a reading superstar in Maple class you need to read three times to yourself at home, three times to yourself at school and three times to an adult in a week. If you do this you will win a raffle ticket and a team point! In Maple class we also give out a 'blind book' to the child who has met their reading superstar target the most that half term! The winning child will be able to choose a wrapped book to take home and keep!
Our homework goes out on a Friday and children have a choice of the homework the complete from a set menu. Homework must then be returned to school on the Wednesday ready to be marked again and sent back out on Friday.
We also love to give out team points and raffle tickets for the chance to win instant prizes!
