During our first half term of the year, we worked on our topic, 'Traders and Raiders', where we studied the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. At the end of the topic, we invited you to come into school to see our Anglo-Saxon buildings and have the opportunity to buy a few small items that we had made. Thank you for supporting us in this way.
Look below to see photos of some of this topic's activities.
Our new topic is called 'Playlist'. It has a music theme and we plan to compose and perform our own song! We started the topic by listening to music and describing how it made us feel.
We recently enjoyed the Halloween disco. Look below for some scary photos!
In English, we learnt the legend of King Arthur and the sword in the stone. Through it we worked on improving our writing using conjunctions, and writing in the past tense. Currently, our work is based on 'How to be a Viking' by Cressida Cowell. We are innovating the story to 'make it our own', using effective description.
In Maths, we have worked on Place Value (of 3 digit numbers) for several weeks. Now we are working on addition and subtraction, and we will move on to the 'formal' methods using columns after the half term break.
As parental request, homework is set fortnightly (set and explained on a Friday and then handed in on the Wednesday almost two weeks later). Ongoing homework is frequent reading to an adult at home, plus practising number bonds/times tables and weekly set spellings.
