Welcome back to a new year in School!
It has been lovely to get to know all the children new to class 5. We have settled in quickly and have already shown good attitudes towards each other and our learning.
This week we have introduced our new topic 'Cold Hands Warm Heart'. We have already discussed the qualities of a warm heart and how this helps us get on with others. In literacy we have linked this to writing sentences describing our personalities.
Still to come we will be learning about our planet and where we find cold lands and the animals that inhabit it as part of Geography.
As part of our role to form a school council we will be learning about the first set of Laws in England and understanding which ones we still follow today.
As part of Science we will be exploring the change in Seasons. It would be good to talk about these changes as you walk to school, looking at the trees, describing the change in weather.
Maths we will continuing the skills we learnt in Foundation and now developing our knowledge of numbers up to 100. We will understand the value of two digit numbers in tens and units. We will also be practising skills and strategies to add and subtract two numbers. It is very important that we can count, recognise and order numbers to 100.
We are planning a topic 'hook day' called 'cold as ice' and the date for this will be sent out on the next news letter.
At the end of this half term we will be holding parents evenings to discuss the progress your child/ren have made during their first half term.
Please continue to read with your child/ren at least three times a week as this will help them in all areas of learning and understanding!
