Science - Plants

For the entire Spring term we will be looking at plants during our science lesson.

We will be exploring questions such as:

- How is water transported through a flower?

-What is the life cycle of a plant?

- What are the names of all the parts of a plant?

Maths

This term is all about different forms of measurement - length, weight and volume. 

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.

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.

Spring Project

Our project question is...

What might we live like in the future?

As part of our project this term we will be exploring the use of land in Warrington. We will be looking at the changes in settlements and why this may be. We will also be considering the environmental impacts of these changes.

 

This project is heavily geography skills based and the children will look at how to read maps, use an atlas and look at systems such as google earth,

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.
