Teacher: Mrs Runciman
Welcome back. I hope you have all had an enjoyable and restful October half term holiday. This term our topic is Active Planet, where we will be learning about volcanoes and earthquakes. In science we will be learning about forces and magnets. Learning Goals this term are focussed on homophones (spelling), inferring how characters feel using evidence from the text (reading) and adding ones, tens and hundreds to a three-digit number (maths).
As a school we aim for all children to read at home to an adult several times a week. Thank you for supporting your child in achieving this. Dojo points are awarded each week for every child that has five home reads recorded in their Home/Academy diary that week. We will continue to promote a love of reading in school and our class book this term will continue to be The Hodgeheg by Dick King Smith.
The children are enjoying using Times Tables Rockstars. We use this three times each week in school and the regular practise is resulting in children scoring more highly and in a faster time. They are also able to access this resource online at home. using their login details which are at the front of their home/academy diary.
We now also have Mathletics in school, a valuable resource to support maths learning at home and in school. I will add new tasks each week for children to access at home using their login details, which are in the front of their home/academy diary.
