Each week children will be given spellings relevant to their learning over the  week. They will be tested on a Thursday. 

Each week on a Friday children will be given a problem solving sheet for maths, this is optional but if completed, children will receive a gold star and needs to be handed in before the following Friday. 

If your child is struggling with any aspect of their homework, I am available every playtime or lunchtime to help them work through the tasks.

Roald Dahl Day:

We have had an amazing day, celebrating Roald Dahl and his fantastic stories!

We also designed our own 'best' and 'worst' teachers, inspired by Miss Trunchbull and Miss Honey - here are our favourites!

Active Maths:

In maths this half term we have been focusing on place value, addition and subtraction! We love using the concrete resources before we move on to working in our books, as well as finding fun and exciting ways to learn. 

Mission English:

This half term we have been focusing on SPaG in the form of fantasy fiction. We have drawn on all of the different grammatical extracts and created our own descriptions of fantastic creatures and their surroundings. 

Mission Possible:

This half term our mission has been based on our local area. 

What have we done so far?

We have located the UK and identified the countries which make up the UK using a range of different maps. We have also used atlases to find and locate city settlements throughout the UK and label these on our own map. From this we discovered there are 4 main types of settlement, city, town, village and a hamlet; we ordered these on a hierarchy and stated which type of settlement we live in and how we know. 

On Monday, we went for a walk around Whitley and looked at all of the different physical and human features. We noticed that there were a lot more houses in the village than we thought, although there are many fields which farmers use to grow their crop as well.
