Wednesday 20th March

This week we are looking at ratio in mathematics and comparing different quantities. We are also publishing stories. I remind you of links earlier in the blog to SATs revision and this would be a good thing to catch up with over the Easter break. I also remind you that we have extended SATs club at 8.15 on Wednesday morning to children who would like extra support with spelling.

In music we are singing songs and performing to the theme of ‘The Scottish Play.’ Next week we will be designing maps of Christchurch and identifying what is important to the children. These maps may well be used for geographical research on a larger scale.

Thursday 14th March

I have been running a grammar club before school that starts on Wednesdays at 8.15. The focus is now switching to spelling. Your child is welcome to come along for any support they need in this area. It will start next week.

Our class will also be popping over to Druit Gardens on Monday morning if the weather is kind. We will be looking at and drawing leaves from different species of tree and looking at similarities/differences as well as trying to identify the tree. Please ensure your child has a coat for this.

Saturday 9th March

An early blog for the coming week. Thank you for your support with project work over the last few seeks. There were some excellent models, pieces of writing and IT work on show, well done children. Normal homework continues from Monday! I look forward to parents’ evenings over the next few days and hope you can attend. I remind you to please encourage your child to read a wide variety of books to support their vocabulary development, comprehension and speed. Great fun with music too this week, ask your child about the boomwackers!

Wednesday 6th March

Time seems to whizzing by in Class 6 at the moment. Thank you so much for the support with the projects over the last few weeks. Children are bringing in some super models, writing and even video! We hope to see some of you at the exhibition on Friday. Usual homework will recommence next week.

I have investigated the use of google drive as children are bringing in their own IT equipment which is not permitted in school. Each child has their own school email address. They can also access the google drive on this account for the storage of larger items that cannot be emailed. I will talk to children about this shortly but it means they can access things at school without memory sticks etc.

Wednesday 27th February

I hope you had a lovely half term and made the most of the beautiful weather we had. This week we are starting to plan our own version of Alibaba and the 40 thieves. We are also looking at word problems with multiple steps. In science we are investigating microorganisms.

I remind you project work needs to be handed in next week. Please keep any bulky items at home until the Wednesday due to space restrictions in class.

English and maths groups prior to school will be continuing up to the Easter holidays.
