The first term certainly flew by and the children made a great start to the year. This term we have our trip to Kent Life to look forward to and this day will help them understand more about the Stone Age, which is our topic this term. The Stone Age topic is largely history focussed but the children will also be exploring cave art over the coming weeks.
In Science we will be learning about 'Animals, including humans' so I'm sure that they will really enjoy this unit.
In R.E., our focus will be on 'Mary, Mother of God' and as the term moves on, the children will be exploring Christmas in more depth.
The P.E. lessons will continue to work as last term - a programme of either Handball, Dance or Netball. Please ensure that earrings are removed and that the correct kit is in school every day. As it is now cold, please provide your child with jogging bottoms and a sweatshirt for outside P.E.
I shall endeavour to add photos of your children's learning as the term progresses and Maths homework will continue to be provided when necessary.
Eagles' Class Teacher
The children have begun to learn the 4 times tables. These are the facts they have been working hard to recall:
1 x 4 = 4
2 x 4 = 8
3 x 4 = 12
5 x 4 = 20
10 x 4 = 40
Have a look at these websites for fun and engaging ways to practise your times tables:
Have you downloaded the Squeebles app? It's £3.99 and a great way for children to practise their tables on the phone or tablet.
Our topics for the year are as follows:
Term 1 - Totally Dahl
Term 2 - The Stone Age
Term 3 - The Americas
Term 4 - Natural disasters
Term 5 - Space, shape and measure
Term 6 - The Romans
Just a reminder that P.E. is on Tuesday every week.
Your child should have an indoor and an outdoor P.E. kit at school at all times. Also that if your child has earrings they need to be removed before the lesson and hair should be tied up. Thanks.
The first trip of the year will be to Kent Life on Friday 22nd November. The children will be spending the day learning about the Stone Age (to correspond with our topic in term 2 of the Stone Age).
