For the first half of the Summer term we will be looking at magnets during our science lessons.

We will be exploring questions such as:

- What is the difference between push and pull?

-What different uses are there for magnets?

-What is the north and south pole?

-What does a magnet attract?

Maths

This term is all about time, shape and fractions. Please check back here for websites to access to help the children with their skills.

Please encourage your child to regularly access TT Rockstars. School have paid for a subscription to this as we think it is a valuable tool to help them practice their times tables.

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.
