Week beginning 19th June 2017
Our Learning Challenge this half term is:
Why would you like to live beside the seaside?
Highlights Last Week:
Last week the children enjoyed learning about the features of seaside towns and learnt the difference between natural features (e.g. cliffs, sand, rock pools) and man-made features (e.g. piers, shops and fairgrounds)!
English: This week we are continuing work with our new story 'Beauty and the Beast!' The children will explore the features of fairy tales before having a go at retelling the story.
Maths: This week we will revisit time and use our understanding of reading scaled divisions and the 5 times table, to try to read the time to the nearest 5 minutes.
Topic: This week we will work on position and direction and will use maps and photographs of seaside towns to practise giving verbal directions. The children will use programmable toys to input directions.
Maths games focusing on the skills learned during class and bug club books have been added to children's bug club accounts. Please log in to bug club to select these. The children can also practise their maths skills by logging into mathletics:

Every Friday the whole school will participate in Reflection Time. During this time we will reflect on what we have been doing in class this week. Each week we will have a different question. Please encourage your child to speak about this at home.
This week's question:
Which piece of work am I most proud of? Why?
Things to remember:
1. You should read with your child every night and write a comment about their reading in their reading records. Reading records should be returned every day.
2. Homework books will be given out on a Friday and should be returned on a Wednesday. Please read the homework guidance on the inside of the front cover.
3. P.E. is on Tuesday, children should have their P.E. kits on these days (white t-shirt, black shorts and plimsoles).
Keep up the great work!
