Welcome back Spectacular Squirrels,
I hope that you have had a fantastic half term break and are ready for a busy half term!
We will be thinking about the question ... Were they revolutionary? The Victorians made so many changes and many of their inventions we use today. The half term will start with us travelling back to 1889 and becoming a Victorian school child. We will be learning about Queen Victoria, Victorian life and researching a variety of inventions that were amazing at the time.
In Mathematics, we are going continue the superb progress that we are making with our times tables (a big thank you to everyone who at home have been practising tables, keep up the good work!). We are going to be looking at the four operations and how they are applied in a variety of ways.
Our book we will be studying in English is ‘Daisy saves the Day’ by Shirley Hughes and extracts from ‘The Street Child’ by Berlie Doherty, both link very closely with our topic . We will be using the text alongside ‘The Write Stuff’ to create some amazing writing using different techniques. Reading is going to be big focus for this term with the children with part of the week dedicated to reading activities and reading for pleasure. Please make sure that your child brings their reading book to school everyday.
PE lessons will continue to take place on a Tuesday. Please make sure that your child comes into school wearing their PE kit - white T-shirt, black shorts/track suit and trainers.
Spellings will be given out each Wednesday ready for a test on the following Wednesday.
Keep checking back on our page to look at all of the amazing things that we are getting up to!
#ethusiasm, #reasoning and #focus.
