Welcome to Buzzard Class!
We have a very busy term ahead of us, with the children getting closer to sitting their SATs in May. The children are working extremely hard in all subjects, especially maths and English.
The children seem to be enjoying our new English book, The chronicles of Harris Burdick. The book is based around the mystery of 14 pictures which were once left in a publishers.
Within maths we have started looking at the links between fraction, decimals and percentages. It would be helpful if you could practise this at home with your child.
We have started our new geography unit of work which will see us looking at mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes. The children already seem excited to learn the differences and similarities of the three.
Please do take the time out of your busy days, to sit down with your child and discuss what they have been learning. At this time, it would be helpful if you could hear your child read and ask them questions related to the text.
Buzzards will be having outdoor PE on a Thursday. Please ensure all children have the correct kit in school at all times.
Can all children please ensure they have a water bottle in school with them. It is important that all children are staying hydrated.
All children need to be reading at least 3 times a week, also homework needs to be completed weekly and handed in on a Friday.
Homework is set on a Monday, with children writing the page numbers which need to be completed in their reading records. Please ensure you are supporting your child with this.
Many parents have requested some websites which they can access at home, to help with SATs practise.
Here are a few, if you need any other assistance please don't hesitate to ask.
