Weekly Updates

 

 

LAST WEEK(7/06/21):

Maths:We learnt how to find the perimeter of different shapes. We also solved problems involving perimeter. Please continue to use Doodle Maths and TT Rockstars to practise number skills at home. 

English: We started a new talk for writing unit based around the story of Beowulf. We analysed an example text and drew out the key features. Our SPaG focus was word classes. Our Vipers text was a different guided reading task for each class and the focus was on infering meaning from the text. We used evidence to support our thinking. Our spelling focus was a revision of apostrophes and how to use them correctly. We also revised previous spelling patterns. Please continue to read every day at home because this will help you to make progress in your reading. We check reading records daily to monitor your reading at home and please ask a parent/carer to acknowledge any reading at home with a signature. 

 

Topic: We learnt who the Vikings were, where they came from and why they came to Britain.

Maths: We will be carrying out assessments this week. We will be using daily practice to revise key maths objectives. Please continue to use Doodle Maths and TT Rockstars to practise number skills at home.

Our SPaG focus will be relative pronouns and relative clauses. Our spelling focus will be homophones and we will also revise previous spelling patterns. Please continue to read every day at home because this will help you to make progress in your reading. We check reading records daily to monitor your reading at home and please ask a parent/carer to acknowledge any reading at home with a signature.

UK Mental Health Awareness Week will take place from the 10th to the 16th May in 2021. This year's theme is nature and the environment.

The evidence is clear that access to nature is crucial for our mental health, and millions of people discovered that during lockdowns in 2020. However, this was not the same for all of us. MHAW 2021 will explore what the barriers to accessing nature are, and ensure that everyone is able to share in the natural world and experience its mental health benefits.
