We’re riding the excitement wave as we keep working on our design project in design and technology class. With the hacksaw, we continue learning to make axles for our soapbox cars, getting them ready to hit the road. As we refine our designs, our anticipation grows, eager to see our ideas come to life!

In Geography, we’ve been exploring how people live in the British Fenlands and the Kenyan grasslands. We’re comparing factors like population, climate and wildlife to understand how these two places are similar and different.

In STEM, we’ve been exploring the fascinating world of food chains, learning about the different creatures and their roles in maintaining balance. We’re diving into how disruptions can affect ecosystems and why it’s crucial to keep our food chains healthy.

In English, we’re further developing our writing skills by exploring our interests with the help of subordinating conjunctions like “because,” “when” and “so,” we’re learning how to connect ideas and make our sentences even more captivating. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zqk37p3

In Maths, we’re diving deep into the world of 2D shapes, becoming experts at spotting them all around our school. We’re not just identifying shapes; we’re also mastering the concept of vertices and understanding how many corners each shape can have. Maths Week 4

Math challenge at home: Let’s go on a 2D shape hunt around your house! Look for shapes like squares, circles, triangles, pentagons, hexagons and rectangles. Record your findings and get ready to share them with your teacher and class next week.

Times table website: In our daily maths sessions we have begun learning our times tables. Please find a link here to a website that has times table games to practice: https://www.timestables.co.uk/2-times-table.html Your child’s NumBots login will also work for Times Table Rockstars. If you haven’t done so already, please start using the app with your child at home.
Reading books: Please make sure these are returned on Friday 17th May. The phonics books relate to the spellings we have been learning in class so please use them for any spelling practice alongside the reading.
Please make sure you return books on the day. You will incur a £5 fine if this isn’t returned. Your child will be given their new phonics book once the old one is returned.
PE: Please make sure that PE kits are in school each week and that kits are the correct PE kit for school: white t-shirt, blue or black jumper, blue or black shorts/jogging bottoms/leggings, spare socks and trainers.
