The term is now in full flow and we are enjoying the sunny weather and the chance to take our learning outside. Peace is our value this term and we have been exploring ways to be peacemakers both for ourselves and our friends.
In maths, we are learning all about shape, starting with angles. This week we have used protractors to measure angles, a task that we found tricky at first but soon got the hang of. Over the next few weeks, we will be looking at deepening our geometric understanding and will be reasoning, problem-solving and investigating within this area.
In English, our text is the story of Robin Hood and we are building up to writing our own adventure stories based on this classic tale. We are very excited to begin acting out parts of the story and to get creative with our own ideas!
In our topic work, we will be studying rivers in geography and have already started to research major rivers. We have particularly enjoyed finding out about the animals that live in these rivers and have lots of questions to explore further! In art, we have been working on perspective and using angles and lines to inform our drawing. We have persevered to learn this skill and have so far produced some excellent work.
We are looking forward to the rest of the summer term and the exciting opportunities that await us!
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.
