Autumn Term 2017 - The Victorians

In our Victorian topic we shall be learning all about what life was like for a Victorian child, both at school and at home.

In literacy, we shall soon be starting a new class book called Chimney Child, and doing lots of exciting reading, writing and drama work based on the story. We have also been enjoying our work on 'Pigeon Impossible', creating some lovely written work based on the short video, and showing off our reading skills.

In maths, we have been working hard on our place value skills using the 'Maths No Problem!' scheme.

In RE this term, our topics are Homes, Promises and Visitors, as well as our special 2 week focus on Judaism.

In science, our topics this term are Light and Rocks.

Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday this term-please remember your PE kits, including trainers. If possible, please try and have your kits in all week, just in case we have any special sporting activities, or in case plans change.

Homework will go out on a Friday and the last day for hand in is the following Friday, however there will be more housepoints awarded the earlier the hand in. Optional homework will also gain housepoints and best pieces will be displayed around the classroom.

Weekly spelling tests will take place on Fridays.

Also, make sure that you keep practising your timestables  (especially your 2, 10, 5 and 3s this term) as we have daily tests on these!
