Welcome to the Whales' class page!
I hope you all had a wonderful half term, but still managed to find time to keep your brains active - there are only 10 school weeks until SATs!
This half term we will be continuing with the text 'Gone Away', which delves into important themes regarding friendship and loss. We will also be studying Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' - one of my favourite Shakespearean plays!
We will be exploring our Mayan topic further; discovering their input into mathematics, astronomy and chocolate through various fun, creative and interesting activities. Here is a great website for those that would like to discover more at home:
In Maths, we will continue improving our ability within our groups on a range of topics, focusing our key needs and weaknesses. Make sure you are logging into Mathletics at home to develop methods learnt in class, alternatively use the revision guide attached to this page - it has lots of useful youtube links to help you!
Finally, as we learn and plan for our futures remember that we cannot replace time. This term is an important one as we lead up to SATS, now is the time to be putting in the hard work at home to ensure you secure the best score you can when it comes to May. Let’s enjoy each lesson to its full potential and make the most of the present. We worked so hard the first term; I think we can do the same in this term in the lead up to SATs.
Class Motto: JUST KEEP SWIMMING!!
