Hi Livingstone, Mrs Alexiou here :) 

Hope you are all well and have started working through your daily routine today, I have already seen that 10 children had been on Spelling Shed by Lunchtime today - good job! Don't forget I also gave you a list of the 100 words you need to know. The ones in white are the ones you still need to learn.

Positive thought of the day: 

“With the new day come new thoughts and new strengths.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Each day I'm am going to be setting you a little challenge to get yourselves thinking:

Challenge 1: Zoom in Zoom out! Have a discussion with your family? what do you think it is? why?

Answer will be revealed tomorrow, good luck!!

Remember what we talked about yesterday, don't forget to help out at home

Spring 1

Our new topic this half term is Groovy Greeks!! We will be learning all about the history of Ancient Greece such as; the Olympics, who the different Greek Gods were, the influence that Ancient Greece had on the world, the achievements of some the most famous Ancient Greeks and The Battle of Marathon.

We were treated to a fantastic performance in the first week back all about the Greek myth of Perseus and Medusa.

Our new Science topic this half term is called Body Pump! We will be focusing on looking at the circulatory system and in particular the heart and how it works. 

In English we are using a short animation called Alma to inspire our writing and the children done some fantastic writing so far of building the suspense...who knows what will happen to Alma next...

 

Just a reminder that in order for children to earn their home learning token they must read three times a week (either on bug club or a physical book) and write summary sentences to go with this. 

Maths homework is TTRS that is set weekly by the teacher. They have to complete 5 rounds in order to complete the task.

Each Math class has also been given a red study book (which will need to be returned at the end of the year) and white question book in which to complete the work that they are set by their math teacher. This is due in on a Wednesday

Spelling Shed is also up and running, children should have a username and password in their planners and I have set weekly homework for them to have a go at too. 

I am also going to be sending home 10 spellings a week based on our lessons which the children need to practise

Home learning runs from Monday to Monday, reading and maths will be checked and planners will also be signed.

For anyone that wants any extra arithmetic practise 

www.myminimaths.co.uk is great for practise questions.
