Welcome to Owls!
Class Teacher: Mrs Pope & Mrs Campbell
Welcome to Owls!
Welcome back to all of our Owls! We hope you had a relaxing Christmas and New Year and are looking forward to getting stuck in to all of our new challenges.
Our topic this term is ‘Does the punishment fit the crime?’. We will be looking at crime and punishment through the ages from Roman times, Anglo Saxons, Tudors, Victorians and right up to the present day. We will be comparing the kinds of punishments used and asking if it was fair.
In English we are using the Write Stuff to look at the poem – The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. We will be using our lenses from the Writing Rainbow to identify rhyme and repetition along with other lenses. Culminating in an independent write, where the children will write an alternative ending in the style of the original poem.
Spellings will be given on a Tuesday 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 delving deeper into fractions, finding equivalents and changing improper fractions to mixed number fractions and back again. We’ll be moving on to time after this so any practise at home would be a great start. 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!
