Space

 

Welcome to  the Spring term 2019

We are well into our Context. We have visited the Museum to the Tim Peake Exhibition. We loved pretending to be an astronaut in the space suit. We have researched the Planets and are making our own website about them. We will be going on our own space expedition after half term !!!!!!

 

 

Values and RE

Our Value this half term is Creativity . In RE we have been learning about islam and creativity. The children have produced beautiful art work and designs and some very thoughtful comments.

 

Literacy

We have just finished reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. We really enjoyed it amd have been insprired to write our own stories. We are writing these collaboratively with our JDO partner school St Ita's in Belfast.It links well with our context . After half term we will develop non fiction skills through learning about Neil Armstrong and Tim Peake aswell as other astronauts. We will also write Space Poems. Each day we have Guided Group Reading. We will also cover SPaG - Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar.

 

Numeracy

In Maths we will   focus on revising the core areas of  Place Value, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division.  We will also be working hard to enhance our mental arithmetic and times tables knowledge.  We are also be developing our Problem Solving Reasoning skills through different and varied 'Mathemagical' Challenges, and more in-depth numeracy-based rich learning tasks!

International JDO Collaboration Project!

We are still very much part of the JDO project and working with our partner school in Belfast St Ita's. The children have used hangouts to write their collaborative stories.

 

PE

PE will be every Monday.  Please leave the kit in school in a bag that will be left on the coat hooks.

 

 

Homework

Homework  will be given on a Friday. Please encourage your child to do their homework or attend Homework Club in school. We now use a Homework Grid which is linked to The Four Core Purposes. The children help plan these activities which gives them real ownership. They should ve very proud of their ideas and work produced. We certainly are. Reading at home is also important. Please help your child with practising their times tables, as they as so important. The children can stilldo the  learning activities allocated to your child's Active Learn account.

 

Thank you for your support and we are proud to work with you to help your child learn.  If you have any questions please do ask us.
