Welcome to Owls!
Class Teacher: Mrs Pope & Mrs Campbell
Welcome to Owls!
We hope you had a fantastic Easter break and didn’t eat too much chocolate!
Our topic this term is ‘Don’t Worry, Bee Happy’. This is a topic base around what it is to be kind. How kindness can affect others around us and how we make the world a better place by bee-ing kind. We will also be studying climates and biomes to see how different environments can be kinder to the life that lives there. The children start the term looking after a real ‘Bee’, keeping it safe and well for 3 weeks and journaling its story through Seesaw.
In English we are using the Write Stuff to look at The Malfeasance – a text which despite its negative beginning ends with kindness winning out, which links to our topic. We will be using our lenses from the Writing Rainbow to identify simile and metaphor along with other lenses.
Spellings will be given on a Wednesday and will be tested the following week. Please ensure the children practise the spellings given each week. Reading takes place each week so please ensure the children have a reading book and bring it to school each day, regular home reading is greatly appreciated. Handwriting is practised weekly.
In maths we are looking at perimeter and area, moving on to 3D shapes and estimating volume as we go through the term. As always, we are focusing hard on our times tables as this underpins a lot of concepts in maths. We are working hard with our 99 club and our weekly TT Rockstars sessions.
PE is on a Tuesday and Wednesday for this half term. Tuesday is outdoor (weather permitting) so please come to school in a white t-shirt, plain black bottoms and suitable trainers. Wednesday is gymnastics where the children will need shorts. You can wear your school jumper or hoody on these days.
We’re looking forward to a great half term!
