Welcome back to the second half of the Autumn term. Our topic is still 'Grand Designs' and this half term we will be focusing on the Great Wall of China, The Taj Mahal and the Colosseum. We have started by looking at the Great wall of China and are writing a Chinese Myth surrounding Lunar New Year.
In maths we are looking specifically at fractions for the majority of this half term. Fractions can be a dreaded subject by many children; however, they have made an excellent start and continue to impress me everyday with their knowledge and ability to problem solve.
All children should have received a script for the upcoming assembly which is based on our learning from the first half term on the Ancient Egyptians. We will be sending out a letter shortly to inform all parents about the specific arrangements for that assembly.
Please continue to encourage your children to read at home and to practice any skills they may be concerned about leading up to their SATs. Each week, we are setting arithmetic and grammar practice tests for the children to complete for homework, these are excellent practice and clear indicators for which areas the children need to practice more, so please encourage the children to complete these.
I look forward to seeing many of you in the coming weeks for our assembly.
