Welcome to Term 3!
Our new topic for term 3 is 'Ages of Invention'. We will focus on D.T. with an exciting project provided by the James Dyson Foundation in addition to looking at various inventors and engineers from the Victorians to the present day as part of our English curriculum. Science will also come to the fore as we grapple with electricity.
Football will be on Monday afternoons: please ensure the children come to school in their P.E. kit and have shin pads in school. They will not need football boots as we will be continuing our P.E. on the playground.
Gymnastics will be on a Wednesday: the children need to come to school in their P.E. kit.
This will be set on a Friday afternoon and needs to be completed by Wednesday evening. The children have brought home their login details for the different websites on a laminated A5 bookmark card.
This week's homework is:
Three activities have been set. Follow the link to complete them: Mathletics
One activity has been set on SPAG.com. Follow the link to complete it: SPAG.com
The children are expected to read with an adult 3x per week. All reading completed should be recorded in the reading records and signed by an adult. Reading records will be checked on a Monday and should be in school every day.
We will be starting work on our 8 times tables next week so this has now been included in the PurpleMash Mulitiplication test which has been set this week. The children have this week been shown how to access the test through PurpleMash if it is not showing on their 2Do list. The test practises the following times tables with 9 seconds allowed for each answer: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10. The time for each question will be reduced over the coming weeks until we reach the 6 seconds allowed in the national test. Follow the link to complete it: PurpleMash
