If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come to speak to me, I will be available at the beginning (8:35am) and at the end of the day (after 3.40 pm.)
Homework will be sent out each Monday to be returned the following Monday. There is one maths and one English piece to complete each week, in addition to some spelling, times tables and reading activities. We also alternate between written (in orange books) and online homework each week.
Children are encouraged to read daily and record reviews in their reading logs once they have completed their books.
We also complete Accelerated Reader Quizzes to celebrate when we have finished our books - this helps us to build up our very own word count and work towards becoming "Millionaire Readers".
Children are also invited to borrow books from our class library in addition to their school reading books, so they can read a variety of different text types.
Each Wednesday morning we attend Sale Leisure Centre for swimming lessons with professional swimming teachers.
In addition to our weekly swimming lessons, we also have outdoor PE each Friday at school. Children can come to school on Fridays in their Moorlands outdoor PE kit (black jumper, white polo shirt and black joggers). This half term we will be learning the skills and rules involved with Lacrosse.
English "Live Lessons"
We are very lucky to be taking part in Pie Corbett's live writing lessons each Monday morning. We began the lessons by writing poems and learning how to blog about Unicorns. We then finished off the half term by creating some fantastic "Unicorn fact files" which we have proudly displayed in our publishing books.
This half term, our focus has turned to creating adventures inspired by "Podkin One-Ear" by Kieran Larwood.
Keep checking in to see what we produce this half term as our Podkin adventure unfolds...
This half term we are continuing our learning about the Anglo Saxon's and Vikings in humanities lessons and our focus has turned from Space to Forces within our science lessons.
