Week beginning 11-4-16

Let's Learn Together

Year 3

Next week in Y3 we will be starting to express our learning from our Natural disasters  topic. This will involve self correction skills such as learning how to edit and improve our writing. As well as this we are putting our new found powder paint skills to the test by creating our own lava masterpieces. We are creating fabulous displays so look out for these in our classrooms soon.
In science lessons we will be exploring types of rocks. This will involve us learning new vocabulary so we can describe the different types of rock.
During maths lessons we will be exploring statistics. This will involve us learning about data that is presented in different ways. Don’t forget to practice those times tables.
In music lessons, the children are working on a range of skills such as playing different notes on the glockenspiel. In 3F we have been lucky enough to work with an expert musician from Y5.
We are looking forward to our upcoming residential and have been busy thinking about our groups.
Don’t forget to read at least three times a week and record this in your diary. 

Year 4

In Y4 next week, we’re working on more mathematical problems, using addition subtraction, place value and much more to complete complex calculations. We’re continuing to practice rounding and hope you complete your mountain investigation homework to help practice this.

In Science we’ll be studying changes in states of matter, leading on to work on the water cycle. Make sure you can tell a solid from a liquid from a gas and even think about plasma. (We’ll not worry too much about Bose-Einstein condensates, Quantum spin liquid or Dark Matter yet!)

Our Mountain adventure continues and well be studying more geographical data about the worlds mountains, using maps and atlases to locate them and describe their place in the world. 4G will be continuing their representations of biomes using their art skills – see twitter for pictures.

Remember to being your PE kit on a Monday ready to be in school all week. 4MW will be starting their swimming sessions on Wednesday morning, so have your kit and towels in school. 

Year 5

Next week in Y5, we will continuing our topic-based learning on the mysterious ‘Alchemy Island’.

We will be exploring a range of settings, including those we might find on fantasy islands and in well-known novels. This will be the inspiration for our setting descriptions which will begin our work on narratives. We will also be looking to improve our map reading skills and develop our understanding of the many features of Alchemy Island. This will involve researching the subject of alchemy, investigating riddles and clues and finding out more about precious metals and gemstones.

In maths, we will be beginning our learning on measures. This half term, this will include revising time, Roman numerals and reading and interpreting information in tables, including timetables. We will also be continuing with our on-going learning of table facts and the basic fractions, decimals and percentages conversions.

As part of our science work, we will be exploring the different materials and their properties. This links very well to our topic and will mean we can learn more about the interesting gems and metals that we might find on Alchemy Island.

We have had a fantastic start to this half term and we are sure that this will continue as we progress through the weeks. Well done on a great first week back, Y5!

Year 6

Next week we will be:
Continuing revision of key areas within SPaG, Maths and Reading – in preparation for the up and coming SATs tests. We will also be continuing the work with Barnardo’s  – focusing on positive relationships.

Don’t forget:
-PE kits for Monday’s PE lesson.
-Read at home in order to earn those DOJO points.
-Booster sessions have now begun after school on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

We are looking forward too:
-Continuing our work with Barnardo’s

We would like to share with our families;
-Thank you once again for your continued support.
