HOME LEARNING PHONICS PRACTICE:
Daily Task – Friday 8th May
Write a Prayer. The government (the people who run our country and make decisions) announced their plans for the UK yesterday. How do you feel? Are you pleased or disappointed? Are you worried about anything? Write a prayer thinking about the gifts that the Holy Spirit can give you to help with the next step. Will you ask for wisdom, patience, love?
Welcome back to the Summer Term!
We have a fun packed term ahead of us! Don't be concerned about working from home - it can still be just as much fun. On a positive note, you will have more freedom to research your individual interests.
We will be learning about fractions, tenths and hundredths in maths and the story of The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan in literacy.
In science we will be learning about food chains and we will be designing and making our own electric car, hopefully in the second half of the term.
New Life, Building Bridges and God's people are the topics in RE and during these difficult times I am sure you can think of special people helping in your community and how they spread God's message. Hereford, local hop farming and mapping is the geography focus and after half-term we will be learning about the Egyptians in history. Michelangelo is the artist the term and you can experiment creating sculpture.
Please visit our class blog where we upload photos and work from the children.
Password and address can be obtained from school.
We are running a 20 minutes a day reading challenge. An adult will read to your child for at least 10 minutes a day in school - can you match it at home?
Reading records will be checked every Thursday afternoon - please make sure an adult has signed them daily. To be a monthly book worm, you must have it signed.
Please read every night to an adult and talk about what has happened in your book.
There is an excellent choice of books on this website: https://schoolreadinglist.co.uk/new-book-releases/school-reading-list-books-of-the-month/
Don't forget to keep practising your times tables - you will need to answer each question in 6 seconds for the Times Table Check in June. It really supports your calculation and problem solving.
We are using Learning Logs for homework and roughly each fortnight you will undertake some research to support your topic learning. There will also be times tables to learn.
Spellings are based on the Year 3 and 4 word list (see below). They will be given out on Thursday and the test will be on the following Tuesday.
Please have your summer and winter PE kit in school at all times. We will try to get outside as much as possible even if it is a bit chilly.
Maths homework will be set using Mymaths
