Term 1 Update

In week 4 we are now familiar with our new timetable, we take our classroom duties seriously and we are all working hard to make our classroom inviting for our visitors on Open Afternoon this Thursday. We have our Rabble of Butterflies, our Self Portraits and our Personal Shields on display.

In our project work we can sing the proper names of the bones to the tune of Dem Bones, Dem Bones, we know examples of different joints, we know some muscle names and where they are, and this week we are learning about the positions and functions of our organs.

In PE we have been learning and practicing hockey skills and doing some different skills stations. We also keep active in mental maths by jogging to the 2 times table, dance stepping to the 3 times table, punching out the 4 times table, Greek dancing to the 5 times table and kick stepping to the 6 times table!

Every Monday we brainstorm a spelling pattern and select a personal list of 10 words to learn by Friday. We always have to write out the list twice using the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check method for homework and we have a different task each week to do with our spelling pattern. This is due in by Thursday morning. There will also be a maths task which should be completed by Fridays.

Thank you for supporting your child with their homework.
