WELCOME TO ELM CLASs
Happy new year! This will certainly be a term to remember. Whilst we aren't seeing each other everyday in school, we are all still working hard at home on our home-learning tasks through Class Dojo.
Here are just some of the exciting things we will be doing this term:
Creating narrative writing based on 'How to Train Your Dragon' by Cressida Cowell.
Exploring the history of vicious Vikings and amazing Anglo Saxons.
Creating Viking portraits and modelling Viking longships.
Learning about space and our incredible solar system.
Understanding and discussing ways to keep ourselves safe and healthy.
Our curriculum newsletter for the term is posted below with lots of important vocabulary and details on to help you with your learning.
Year 4 will have a times table assessment in the summer term. It's important that they know all of their tables up to 12x12. Please continue to practice all tables. Some useful websites are:
- Maths frame https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check
- Times table rockstars
- 'Hit the button' on topmarks.co.uk
If Year 5 are not yet confident and fluent with all tables up to 12x12, then please continue to practice these.
PE will be on a Thursday afternoon. Due to the current situation, children will need to wear their kit into school. Please ensure your child will be warm enough, as they will be outside for break times and lunch times.
If you would like toast at break times, please bring money on a Monday. It is 10p per day. Please note, money for toast will only be collected on a Monday.
Returning to school
On returning to school, the children have discussed and understood how to keep safe in their bubble and around school. I have been very proud of how they've all adapted to the new changes and have shown consideration and maturity.
We've expressed our emotions through painting, trying to reflect on different feelings through colour and shape. Some children chose to represent their own emotions about returning to school. The artwork looks great and each one is unique!
