Welcome back to a nice ‘normal’ half term! Now the opera project is finished we are getting used to being back in school every day. Thank you for your support with the different times the children have been arriving and leaving school- remember to check out the photos on our class page of the school website.
Curriculum: In English we will be looking at play scripts, letter writing, personal writing and poetry through our study on Macbeth by William Shakespeare. This half term we will also be finishing our topic on Ancient Greece and beginning to learn about Modern Greece; in Science our topic continues to be properties of materials. In DT the children will be working in small groups on a Monday making pizzas, we will provide the ingredients to make the bases but will ask the children to bring in the toppings of their choice. I will let you know when it is your child’s turn. In Computing we will be learning how to code using software called ‘Scratch’ which is free and can be downloaded at home for them to use if they wish to.
PE: Our PE lessons continue to be on a Tuesday afternoon and a Friday morning. Please ensure your child has the correct labelled clothing in school on these days.
Homework: It will continue to be set on a Friday and due in the following Wednesday. It will generally be based on what we have been learning in class. Please encourage your child to complete and hand their homework in on time. If they are unsure they can ask for help at school. I have also included a science activity for them to complete over the next 5 weeks.
Please remember home spelling books need to be in school every Thursday for new spellings to be set on Fridays.
May I ask that you check your child is not bringing any slime into school as it is getting on the books and trodden into the carpets.
If you have any questions please leave a message with Mrs Butt or see me after school on a Monday, Thursday or Friday,
Come and join us this Friday for Maths at 2pm, we will be doing puzzles. Then come to the whole school assembly- who will be the star worker this week?
Today we were interviewed by Radio Norfolk about our views on living in Norfolk and what we thought about having a ‘Norfolk Day’. We have now been on the radio, on the news and in the newspaper over the last 2 weeks- we are becoming celebrities!
Today we had our second session of working with the artist Sue on learning how to observe when sketching. We learnt how to consider the proportions of what we were drawing and how to make our pictures look 3D using shading.
