Class Blog – 21st February 2018
Welcome back to what will be another busy half term for St Cecilia with lots to look forward to, first of which will be World Book Week next week – I can’t wait to see your outfits on Thursday!
In English we will be studying the famous nonsense poem by Lewis Carroll, The Jabberwocky, which will include the opportunity for the children to write some of their own nonsense verse. In maths, we will be continuing to explore fractions including the use of bar models to develop and support our understanding.
Ancient Greece will continue to be our topic in history for a few more weeks, as we have so much still to explore. This will include writing our own myths featuring their own chosen God or Goddess. In science, we will be studying the change in humans as we grow and this will no doubt provide lots of opportunities for discussion. Decoupage (the art of decorating an object with pieces of coloured paper) will be our topic for DT this term, allowing the children to create both their own project and a joint class creation also. The latter will be linked to our love of reading. Finally, in RE, we will be studying the importance of the Easter Story.
Hopefully we will be blessed with some gorgeous Spring weather very soon, allowing for some much awaited outdoor PE lessons.
As always, throughout the term we will be focusing upon our value, which this term is Trust and will be considering the importance this has on aspects of our lives both in and out of school.
Looking forward to another great term with St Cecilia!
All children are expected to read regularly every week; each time they read, they will receive raffle tickets. When they have read 5 times, they will receive raffle tickets and a merit, which will count towards their house. Other prizes for reading will be given in class throughout the year.
Could you please ensure that your child brings their home/school planner in to school every day. Please feel free to write any comments in it.
Every Friday your child will bring their planner home which will have been signed by their teacher. This should be countersigned by the parent/carer and returned to school again on Monday morning.
