Our topic for this term is based on a book called ‘The Land of Neverbelieve’. It is about an explorer called Norman Messenger who discovers a strange wolf-shaped island in the Pacific Ocean. The children have already started to explore the island through Messenger's fantastic book. They have started to write a newspaper report about the discovery and have looked closely at the route Messenger took around the world.
Next week, we will be creating a 3D map of the island. Please could you bring in any clean recycling for this project, e.g. empty toilet rolls, old newspaper, cereal boxes, pizza boxes and yoghurt pots.
We have tried to take on board your views towards homework from the questionnaires completed last term. As such, the format of homework will be changing this term. At the beginning of every half term, the children will be given a range of activities to choose from. It is not expected that you complete all of these, but it would be fantastic to see the English and maths completed as a minimum. We will be checking DB Primary at the end of the half term, and would also like the homework books to come back into school on the last Monday of half term so that we can celebrate the children’s efforts as a class and mark their work. Please let me know if you need any further assistance with this.
We have started our new science topic, Living Things and Their Habitats and have had much fun observing and collecting evidence of living of dead things in our local habitat.
As ever, if you have any concerns or would like to know more about your children learning, please just pop in.
