This Weeks Learning

The children have had a great first week back. They have settled in well and are working hard!

Topic

This week , we finished off our previous topic ‘Brilliant British Inventors’. We read the first chapter of The Matilda Effect by Ellie Irving and then the children were tasked with creating their own next chapter to the story. They have worked so hard on these pieces of writing and we are proud teachers.

Maths

For Maths this week, we looked at scaling problems and then moved onto measuring length, weight and volume. Please see below for some examples of the learning from this week. We encourage you use them to practise further.

Parent helpers for our trip

On Wednesday 29th (6M and 6B) and Thursday 30th (6L, 6K and 6A) we will taking a trip on the train to visit a museum which will enhance our topic learning.

If there are any parents who are available and willing to help, would you please inform your child’s class teacher (or Mrs Lloyd) so we can consider parent helpers as adults for our trip.

Thank you very much 🙂

Dress up and resources for topic

Welcome back and Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful break and are ready to start another term. A few things to ask, for next week…

  • Tuesday 14th January 2020 will be our dress up day for our hook. We would like to encourage children to wear an outfit representing the person they want to be when they are adults. This can be something they aspire to be or a particular profession (doctor, teacher, dancer, bus driver…)
  • During this day, the children will be creating a book about their life so far. We ask for children to bring in baby/younger photos of themselves in order to create the booklet.
