22nd February 2018

St Martha had a relaxing half term and have come back to school refreshed and ready to work hard. In Maths, we have continued our exploration of fractions and are using bar models to support our understanding. In English, we will be reading, writing and evaluating nonsense poetry. On Monday, we began our new science topic ‘Growing old and Growing up’ and started to investigate the stages of the human life-cycle. We are also preparing to start our new DT project where we will be using découpage techniques to up-cycle boxes and even chairs. We have enjoyed learning all about Ancient Greek culture and will soon be starting our new topic of ‘Rivers and Coasts’. Our value this term is trust, something that we will be trying our best to earn by continuing to strengthen our friendships. We look forward to sharing our successes with you this term!

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.

Home/School Planner

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.
