Week beginning 12-6-17

Year 3

Next week Y3 will be starting our new topic of Heroes and Villains. We will be planning and creating character descriptions based on Cruella De Vil. This will involve us exploring a range of texts and videos to gather information about the character. We will be learning descriptive writing techniques. In SPaG we will be extending our learning on Speech marks into our writing. 

In numeracy we will be exploring measure by thinking about different units for different things. We will explore measuring equipment  and work out how to use it to measure a range of things. Remember to learn those times tables. 

In creative lessons we are adding the finishing touches to our Picture This display by expressing our learning in different mediums. 

Thank you to those children who have created master pieces for their homework. 

Year 4

This week Year 4 will be focusing on co-ordinates and constructing polygons from co-ordinate points. Our Macbeth performance is on June 28th so we are stepping up rehearsals both with Pete from OMTC and in class. It will be a very exciting opportunity for the children to perform in a super theatrical environment.

Our topic being ‘Playlist’ means we will be studying the science of sound and how we can get low and high notes from different instruments.

PE is on Monday but there will be no swimming this week for 4O as we have INSET days on Thursday and Friday.

Year 5

In our maths lessons, we will be further developing our understanding of learning to convert metric and imperial measures, including distance, time, volume and mass.

We are really looking forward to our visits to the Topical World in Leeds, which will lead us into our new topic Beast Quest! 

We are on INSET days on Thursday and Friday, so please take this time to enjoy an extended weekend.

Please ensure spellings and times tables are practised ready for our weekly tests and regular reading is recorded in your child’s reading diary.

As always, please ensure PE kits are in school on a Monday ready for the week ahead.

Year 6

Next week we will be:
Continuing with rehearsals for the end of year performance; introducing props and costumes (letter to follow regarding the clothing required.)

Don’t forget:
-Year 6 Leaver’s Assembly will take place on Wednesday 28th June in the afternoon.
-Inset days will fall on Thursday 15th and Friday 16th June.

We would like to share the following with our families:
Thank you again for your continued support. We are very proud of each of our year 6 children and their commitment and enthusiasm towards their end of year performance.
