Maths Passports

Each child is given their own maths passport. Inside there are number fact challenges to work through. Children recieve bronze, silver and gold awards.

When you have practised, please sign inside their Mad about Maths book. After every 10 practises your child will recieve a certificate and their name will be on the newsletter.

Challenges will be set and tested every Thursday (this is a change for Spring Term). Please ensure their book is in school on this day.

Learning

Our learning question this term is:

How can we live in the moment?

This project will have an arts focus.

We will be learning exploring mindfulness, relaxation and valuing our surroundings.

As part of our project children will:

  • take digital photographs
  • spend time in the outdoor area
  • make musical instruments
  • learn some relaxation techniques
  • mix colours
  • work in the style of an artist

Our Science Topic is: 

Plants

The children will be spending the last half term focussing on this topic. 

You can download a copy of our Summer Term Project letter below.

This was given out at Parent's Evening - 17.4.18 and 18.4.18

Reading

Reading books are checked daily. Please try to read with your child for 10 minutes every night and sign their Reading Champions record.

A number of our children struggle with comprehension. Try to ask a few questions about the story they have read to support them with this.

After every 10 reads your child will earn a 'Reading Champions' certificate and have their name on the newsletter.
