    MUSIC – RECORDER – SPRING TERM

    Recorder lessons with Mrs Oakley will start after Christmas in the Spring term.  You will need a recorder of your own.  Please make sure your recorder is in school every week.  Day to be confirmed.

     

    READING

    Reading books will be changed on MONDAYS, WEDNESDAYS & FRIDAYS.
    Please bring in your reading book and diary everyday.
    It is important that the adult that hears you read at home signs your diary everyday and makes a comment. Mrs Broadbridge and Mrs Blenkinsop will check diaries regularly.
    If you finish your book then read something from home, you can read: comics, fiction, non-fiction, newspapers, posters etc

    TIMES TABLES & FROGGY MATHS

    TIMES TABLES
    Practice/learn your times tables at home whenever you get the chance. They are really important and will help you in all your maths lessons.
    When you have learnt a times table then let Mrs Broadbridge or Mrs Blenkinsop know and they will test you. You need to know each times table up to 12x, be able to say it in order, answer random questions and know the inverse (division)

    You can also practice telling the time and using money.

    FROGGY MATHS CLUB
    Every Friday we do our Froggy Maths.
    You have 5 minutes to answer as many questions as you can. Well done if you get them all right, then your frog will hop onto the next Froggy club lily-pad. If you don’t quite get them all correct or you don’t finish in time then the sheet will be sent home for you to look at over the week, ready for the next Tuesday Foggy Club.

    SPELLINGS

    Every Friday we will have our spelling test.
    Remember to bring your spelling book in on a Tuesday so your next spellings can be put in ready to learn.

  • DT fortnight in Wye class

    We have really enjoyed Design Technology fortnight in Wye class and have taken part in a wide range of activities.  This has ranged from The Pillowcase Project (run by The Red Cross), building a city during our Lego building day, making kites, taking part in The Squashed Tomatoes challenge to designing and making our own Moving Monsters.

    Light & Shadows workshop

    We have been working with Dr Rhodes again this half term on Light & Shadows.  We carried out some investigations based on the length of shadows and opaque, translucent and transparent materials.

    Can you remember the difference between OPAQUE?  TRANSLUCENT? and TRANSPARENT?  What does each word mean?
