We will also be writing an information leaflet about Brazil which is our focus in geography.  In RE we will be looking at Hinduism.  Our maths focus will be fractions and multiplication and division.  In science we will be looking at Living Things and their habitats.

Homework - Times Tables, Reading and Spellings
Please try to practise your spellings and times tables every day. Spellings will be given out each half term and are tested a Friday. Handwriting sheets will be sent out to aid the childrens letter formation.  

You should aim to read every night - even if it is just for 5 minutes - but the minimum is three per week. Please remember to get your reading record signed by an adult but feel free to add a comment in yourself. Reading records will be checked every Friday

Maths and English homework will be set weekly on SATs Companion.  


Our PE lessons will be on Thursday with PDS. Please come into school on a Thursday in your PE kit. Don't forget to remove/cover any jewellery (including watches and earrings) and make sure your hair is tied up if it is long. You can bring in a roll-on deodorant only.
