Our topic this half term is Towers, Tunnels and Turrets.
We will be looking at famous towers, tunnels and bridges around the world, and finding out if we have any interesting ones in and around our local area. Let us know if you spot any!
We are reading familiar stories such as Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel. The children have been designing and sketching their own castles and will be writing descriptions of them using lots of exciting adjectives. We will also be learning more about life in a castle and producing fact files about them. We need to continue to carefully check our spelling and punctuation when we are writing. Handwriting is also a key focus!
Please could you send into school any empty boxes or kitchen roll tubes etc. as the children will be building a castle in school.
Our R.E. topic is The Mass. We will be learning more about the celebration of Mass and the importance of the Readings and the Offertory. During Lent we will reflect on the Stations of the Cross and the next few weeks will be a time of spiritual growth. Encourage your child to give up something or do something extra in memory of the sacrifice Jesus made for us.
In Maths we have been learning more about the properties of 2d and 3d shapes. We will also be doing lots of work on fractions of numbers, including equivalent fractions such as 2/4 and 1/2. We will be learning more about measurement – how to measure length, mass, capacity and time.
Spellings, reading books and homework will be sent home each week. Please support and encourage your child in completing and returning any tasks set, and let me know if there are any problems.
Thank you for your continued support. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
