Hello, this is week 2 of Term 2.

We are learning all about Blogging this term. We can post pictures,  we can send you messages and we can let you know what we have been doing. Keep an eye out for our blog on Class Dojo too.

 Welcome back to term 2

We are looking at Roman numerals and Time in Maths. The aim is to be able to tell the time using Roman Numerals!

This week, for home work, could you write your three times tables in Roman numerals?

Our Topic is Light, this is a smashing topic leading up to Diwali, Hanuka and Christmas. We will also investigate the scientific properties of light and how we see.

The weather is getting colder, could you please provide tracksuit bottoms and a jumper for outside PE please. 

 

 

Welcome back to term 1

 What a wonderful start it has been. The Yr3s are lovely. They have been really kind to the children new to our school.

Do check out our Twitter accounts @WagtailOaktree @vweston8 Ms Weston's Class as we post most days. It is the easiest way of seeing what we have been up to.

It looks like it will be great fun challenging our thinking.

Already the children said, 'It has blown my mind!' thinking of different ways to find half of a shape.

Homework:

 

All children in key stage 2 are expected to read at home at least 3 times a week. This needs to be recorded in their reading records so we can count points towards the end of term homework reward. If you child does not have their record, please note down the date, what they read and who heard them on a scrap of paper and we will still count it towards the reward.

Children are also responsible for changing their own reading books and they are given opportunities to do this every day.

We will be giving out a spellings list every Friday to be learnt (and handed in) by the following Friday. These are incredibly important as your child is learning a wealth of tricky words and spelling patterns to help them through primary school and to succeed in secondary school. We appreciate your efforts in encouraging and supporting your child.

 

SPELLINGS

Spellings are sent out weekly. Please check you child's book bag.

Your child will soon bring home a login in card for Purple Mash. There are homework tasks set there. They can email us securely through Purple Mash, all of the children are familiar with this.

You and your child can do as much homework as you would like to do on Purple Mash.

We are also continuing to challenge ourselves by learning more poetry.
