The children will be focusing our learning on measures. This week we will investigate length: mm, cm and m. Measuring accurately, comparing and problem solving involving addition and subtraction of length. We will also be looking at identifying angles - right angles, obtuse and acute.


Children are encouraged to work on their Maths Passports at home to help them refine their speed and fluency of mathematical facts.


In English this week,

In English we will be beginning the start of our 3 week unit on Non Chronological reports. We will be looking at the structure, layout and presentation as well as technical vocabulary used in Non-Fiction writing.

We have been promoting reading at home – each class has a weekly reading challenge to encourage them to read to an adult at home. We have also been reading books by our Author of the Month – Roald Dahl!


In IPC this week

Our IPC unit this half term is 'Chocolate!'

We will be looking at the following over the next few weeks:

*Our Entry Point - A taste test of chocolate!

*Our Knowledge Harvest - What the children know already and what they would like to find out

*The History of chocolate


We will be tasting chocolate as part of this unit of work - please inform the class teacher if your child has any allergies.


You can help your child... 

By listening to your child read, helping them to learn their weekly spellings and complete their learning logs. Please can you also make sure that the children’s school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled.


MyMaths: The children will be given personal log in details to access their learning online. They will have the chance to log on to MyMaths during their ICT lessons but please encourage them to complete some of the tasks at home.


Learning logs: Our new style of Learning Log has been sent home with the children this week. This is due to be handed in on Thursday. The children are to produce 1 page only on the letter 'I'

Some ideas for inspiration are:
