 Hello,

 

 

 

 

 

 In English this week, we have been reading a range of poems from the book, ‘Poems to perform’ by Julia Donaldson. We have been reading 'The treasures' by Clare Bevan. We have been thinking about what is truly important to us and why? The children have been experimenting with rhyming words along with onomatopoeia. 

In maths this week we have been looking at time. We have been focusing on the minute hand and how the clock is split into intervals of 5. We have been looking at minutes past and minutes to. 

This term in PE, we are covering striking and fielding. We had our last lesson this week; where we played a cricket match. The children demonstrated great perseverance and resilience. 

This term our theme is Africa. This week, we have been thinking about how life in Kibaigwa might differ from life in Bidborough. 

Our Big Question in RE this term is: Why does Easter matter to Christians? We will be learning about the events leading up to the crucifixion and also the acts of worship that Christians complete during this time.

In science, we are continuing to learn about animals including humans. We will be learning about how young animals change as they grow up. We will learn how we as humans change as we grow up. We will also look at the importance of hygiene and taking care of ourselves.

 In PSHE, we are looking at social relationships and the choices we make. 

The children created some lovely recycling posters to enter into our school competition.

 Thank you for your continued support. I hope you all have a restful and enjoyable break. See you next term. 

Jess Salvidge.

 Reading 

It is important that the children are reading daily; this could be them reading a few pages of their book to you, or you sharing a story with them. Please make sure that you record in the planner with the title of the book and what page they have read up to.
