Welcome to Owl class!
It has been wonderful to see the children all dressed up for both World Book Day and Red Nose Day, there are some pictures at the bottom of the page so that you can see some of the fun things we did.
In science this half term we have been busy planting our own beans. We have also been recording how they are growing and changing in the children's own Bean Diaries.
Our topic work has moved on from castles to look at Queen Elizabeth 1 and Queen Victoria and how Britain changed whilst they were both Queen. We have been comparing their reigns and the children have been thinking hard about which one of them was the better queen and why.
In English we have been looking at 'The Lighthouse Keeper' stories and comparing stories by the same author to enable us to write about how they are similar and how they are different, we will be retelling one of the stories and will then go on to write our own version one.
In Maths we have been using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to help us solve word problems. We have been focusing on showing how we worked out our answers and explaining our reasoning in order to demonstrate a broader understanding of the questions we are being asked and to help us spot errors when we check our answers.
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.
Spellings come 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.
