I hope you’ve all had a nice Easter break, and the pupils are ready to start back into their learning.

In maths this week, we are focusing on statistics. We will be learning how to read and interpret pictograms, bar charts and tables. The pupils will be making comparisons about data, as well as creating their own bar charts.

In English, we are beginning work on our book Escape From Pompeii. We will be working on our setting descriptions, using our dictionaries to help us improve our word choices and also using powerful verbs. In Spag, we will be concentrating on how the spelling of some words change when we add ‘ed’ to the end.

In RE, we are beginning our learning on Sikhism and what it means to be committed to something. In our Romans topic, we will be looking at Roman Roads and creating our own cross section of a road by using junk modelling materials. Could you please send your child in to school with some empty cereal boxes, egg cartons, empty yoghurt pots, newspaper etc. In Science, we will begin work on our Rocks and Fossils unit and focus on different types of rocks.

Times tables test this week:

Group 1: x7, x8, x9

Group 2: x8

I am sending the children home with a spelling list today, if you get time can I ask if you could stick it into the back of their homework book. Thank you.
