It has been lovely getting to know the children over the past few weeks, and see them start to settle into their new routines and all the changes this year brings.
Over the past two weeks, the children have been writing descriptive and imaginative letters, postcards and setting descriptions based on our English text: Tom’s Midnight Garden. In maths, they have been looking at place value, focusing on numbers up to 100,000.
In the afternoons the children have started to familiarise themselves with our guided reading text: Stig of the Dump. A particular subject Merlin class have really enjoyed is science. In science, the children have been learning about different forces, specifically: gravity, friction and air resistance. The children have conducted a range of different experiments in groups and as a class, testing out their theories.
Our P.E day is on Monday, please send your child in wearing their P.E kit.
Homework will be coming home this Friday (11th of September 2020) and is due back in on Monday the 19th of October 2020.
