Teacher: Mrs Runciman
Happy New Year! I hope you have all had an enjoyable Christmas holiday. This term our topic is 'Natural Disasters' where we will be learning all about volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis and flooding. We launched our new topic by making 3D models of volcanoes, which we will erupt once they are finished. Lots of amber power of cooperation and emerald power of resilience were needed for the children to successfully complete these tasks.
In Science we will continue to learn about forces and magnets before moving onto our new topic, which will be about rocks and soils.
Learning Goals this term are focussed on using a wider range of conjunctions to link clauses in our sentences (writing), using inference skills when reading and using evidence from the text to make these inferences , (reading) and subtracting ones, tens and hundreds from 3 digit numbers (maths).
As a school we aim for all children to read at home to an adult five 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 and your child will also move up our rocket reading display each time they read at home. By Friday each child with five home reads will also get a treat from our class prize box. We will continue to promote a love of reading in school and our class book this term will continue to be The Boy in the Dress by David Walliams. Children will take it in turns on a Friday to bring in a book of their choice from home that they would like to recommend to the class.
