A Message from the Class Teacher, Mrs Flanagan

2018 -19  Term 3

Welcome back and happy New Year! We hope you had a fabulous Christmas break and that you are looking forward to the new challenges and learning next term will bring.

Here is an overview of what we will be learning about this term:

English:

This half term we will be reading the Anglo-Saxon myth "Beowulf" retold by Rob Lloyd Jones. We will be responding to that by writing diary entries, character and setting descriptions and our own retelling of the myth based on the book characters.

Maths:

This half term we will be focusing on place value and the four number operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).

Topic

Our topic for this half term is Anglo-Saxons. We will be asking how we find out about the past and exploring how life in Anglo-Saxon Britain is different to life today.

RE

In RE we will be exploring the question "What kind of world did Jesus want?"

In addition, we will have music on a Wednesday with Ms Wilmott and PE on a Monday with Andy Booker. 

Homework will be set on a Friday (alternating between English and Maths) to be returned the following Wednesday. Spellings will also be set weekly and tested on a Thursday.

I am sure we are going to have a jam packed term with lots of fun, laughter and learning!

If you have any questions about anything then please do not hesitate to come and find us on the playground.

Kind regards,

Mrs Flanagan (Class Teacher) and Mrs Harding (Class Teaching Assistant)
