Maths

This term is all about adding and subtracting 3 digit numbers. We will be looking at using a formal written method when appropriate.

Mad About Maths is again all about the times tables. Particularly the 3 and 4 times tables. It is so important to keep practicing these. We want our children to  be confident in them.

Try this website and choose the correct times table for them to practice. Regular practice is so important to keep these skills fresh:

Autumn Project

This term is focused on developing the children's history skills and in particular timelines and how events of the past shape our future. 

   We will be sending the children home a practical homework that they have the entire half term to complete. We encourage family to get involved with this and be as creative as possible.

School Trip

On Friday 7th September we will be travelling to Liverpool to visit the museum and in particular looking at the Egyptian exhibition. Watch this space for pictures and updates.

Please see a member of staff if you have any questions.

Online Safety

The staff at Dallam are huge advocates of what an amazing tool the big wide web is. We are showing the children in Maple class how to use features such as email and blogging in a safe and controlled environment. However, we know that there is much more at their fingertips. Please have a read through the links below that the Maple team have put together for you. If you need any advice or to discuss matters further please see us any day at hometime.
