Term 3 Week 1

It has been a busy first week back, it sounds like the children have had a wonderful winter break and have come back eager and ready to learn. We have started looking at our new topic - Active Planet - learning all about natural disasters and how they impact people around the world. The children enjoyed making their own news report using video editing software, describing an earthquake striking Park Way. 

In our Literacy, we are looking at diary entries this term, and the children have been introduced to our core text, Blue John, which is all about a mysterious boy trapped in a cave. The children have identified the features of a diary before looking at them in depth next week. 

In Maths, both year groups are continuing to look at times tables and find clever ways of learning the recall facts quickly. As you may be aware, Year 4 children will sit a multiplication tables check in the Summer term, and it is important they can quickly recall their times table facts. If you would like to practice, please encourage children to use TT Rockstars, or try a mock test at:

We hope you have a lovely weekend.
