Science - Forces and Magnets

This half term we are looking at forces and magnets. We will use specific language as seen on the image above.

 

 

Maths

This term is all about fractions. We will be looking at finding fractions of shapes and numbers and using special terminilogy such as quarters, numerator and denominator.

Mad About Maths is again all about the 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:

Summer Project

What Is Real Treasure?

This term is focused on developing the children's art skills and is all about creating. We will be looking at what we value and what classes as real treasure in our lives. We will be looking at a range of artists and working with local artist Gill Taylor to create masterpieces!

  As our last homework project was so well received we will be sending another practical activity at home for the children to complete with you.

Swimming

The summer term has arrived and that means we begin swimming lessons. Our first session is Thursday 26th April.

The coach will leave at 9am promptly as we need to be changed and in the pool by 9.15am. Unfortunately in the past we have had to leave without children who hadn't arrived during registration.

I would advise the children to wear their swimwear underneath their uniform. Please ensure any goggles are fitted and all towels etc are labelled clearly in their own bag.

Please come and see me if you have any concerns.

 

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.
