They cover the key learning points of the week and should be completed along with home reading , spelling and times table practise.
Reading books will be given out on a Monday and must be returned on a Friday.
Spellings will be taken home on Mondays and there will be a test on a Friday morning.
PE will take place every Wednesday afternoon. Please come to school dressed in your PE kit on that day.
Make sure you bring in your own water bottle each day, to help keep you properly hydrated in school.
Our first topic this year is COLOURS. During this theme, we explored feelings and emotions as well as colours. Firstly we listened to the story 'The day the crayons quit'. We explored the feelings of the characters in the book and used this as a stimulus to write poems. We used colours to describe how we were feeling and used the Dr Seuss book, 'My Many Coloured Days', to carry out a P4C session. We also used this book to write descriptions of what we would be if we felt a certain colour on that day.
In Science we made our own rainbows by adding warm water to skittles. Have a look at the beautiful results.
