Welcome to Owl class!
Welcome back after our Christmas break, I hope you all had a relaxing and fun holiday. I have enjoyed hearing about the exciting things that you have done.
In English over the next few weeks we will be looking at the traditional tale with a twist, Jack and the Baked Beanstalk. We will be comparing the similarities and differences between the tale and the traditional tale Jack and the Beanstalk. We will also be looking at the characters and settings and writing our own version of the story.
In Maths we will be working on problem solving in the areas of place value, 2D and 3D shape as well as addition and subtraction problems linked to money. We are continuing to focus on explaining our reasoning and proving our answers correct.
In topic we are moving on to look at Castles. We will be learning about the different features of castles, the lives and roles of people who worked in them and about different castles around the UK. We will also be visiting Windsor Castle later in the half term to consolidate our learning, letters should have come home with the children this week, please let me know if you didn't receive one.
Our PE day is still Thursday so please make sure your children have a full PE kit including suitable footwear for going outside, which is fully labelled.
This year, spellings will go home on Thursday so you have all weekend to practice them before our tests on Tuesdays!
Reading books are changed on a Monday but please bring your books and reading diaries every day. Finally please make sure that the children have a labelled water bottle in school every day.
