Hello everyone, I hope you all had a lovely half term. It’s hard to believe the next holiday will be Christmas! We have a busy term ahead, with the nativity play in the church along with other things-but the pupils seem really excited!
This week in maths, we have been focusing on multiplication using equal groups. We have been learning the 2 times table and 5 times table.
In writing, we have started our defeating the baddie story ‘Billy the Brave Knight’. We have been working on our story map, character and setting descriptions using patterns of three and alliteration and also the key features of the text.
In Science, we have started our unit on materials and have identified different uses for many materials so far this week. In History we have started learning about Guy Fawkes. In Art, we will be working on Picasso and portraits where we will use colour to show emotion.
During the week we had auditions for our nativity play, and pupils will find out what roles they will get tomorrow.
We will also be having our dictation tomorrow as usual-so get learning your weekly spellings!
RE learning this term
This term in RE we will be working our Incarnation unit. Pupils will be exploring the question-Why does Christmas matter to Christians?
