This term our topic is 'Extreme Earth' where the children will learn about different extreme weather conditions and writing will be based around this. We will be reading 'kensuke's Kingdom' for our class novel and this will directly lead into the writing for this term. The children have already written a formal letter to the RSPCA explaining why taking a dog on a long voyage (something that happens in the book) is not a good idea. This week the children will be creating their own volcano and writing different forms of poetry based on this.
Maths this term will be heavily focused on fractions. We are currently still working on multiplication and division. Please encourage the use of times table rockstars at home, if the children do not know their times tables then they will struggle with their fractions also, so the more practice the better.
A quick reminder that homework has changed this term. The children have all been given homework books, they are to choose which homework they wish to complete. Their books need to be back in school on the last week before half term. It does not need to be brought in each week.
Finally, the days for PE have changed slightly for Kangaroos, we now have PE on a Monday and a Wednesday.
