Spring 1 Term:

Week 1:

The children arrived back to school on Tuesday with a wonderful attitude, ready to get stuck in with some hard work in preparation for our SATs.

In Maths, we revisited place value, learning the values of each digit in a two digit number and using different mathematical equipment to represent these numbers. 

In English, we began our new book 'The Secret of Black Rock'. We worked together to predict what the story may be about and used the illustrations and clues in the text to make inferences. The children were very keen to find out what would happen to the main characters within the story and had mixed reactions when they found out the truth. We then looked more carefully at the thoughts and feelings of the different characters and used role play to help us develop our language and sentences. 

In Science, we explored life processes and how these define if something is alive, dead or never been alive. We used our new knowledge to compare everyday items and worked hard to use our scientific language in our descriptions. 

We began our new CLIC topic where we will be investigating what it would be like to live by the seaside. We worked in teams to mind map our initial ideas and how we could find out some new information.

A reminder that children will be bringing their books home to practise with an adult each night, however they must remember to bring their home reading books to school each day. They need these books for our Read to Succeed lessons.
