I hope that you all enjoyed your Christmas holiday!
This term we will be learning all about pirates! We will research a famous pirate, learn about life on a pirate ship and create our own treasure maps.
In literacy, we will be reading the story 'the Troll' to help us to write a pirate story of our own. After reading the story, we will learn pirates rhymes and poems and see if we can write our own.
Every month we will be learning about a new author. This month, we are reading stories by Julia Donaldson.
In numeracy, we will be learning how to divide and multiply to solve problems. We will also be finding halves and quarters of shapes and objects.
We will have PE every Tuesday afternoon so the children need their indoor PE kits. I will be giving out house points for those children who have their PE kit.
Homework will be set every Friday and children must bring their homework back by the following Thursday to earn a house point!
Spelling homework is set every Monday so that the spellings can be learnt throughout the week. The children will be tested on their spellings every Friday. Also, they should be reading to an adult as often as possible.
If you have any problems, please pop in and ask me.
