Welcome Bears, Lions and Tigers
The New Year is upon us and we hope you all had a wonderful break but are ready and raring to meet the challenges that the year has to offer. Hopefully your break was just as exciting as the adults at school but more importantly; are you as eager as the teachers to get back into the classroom? We have so much planned!
In English, we will be reading some high quality texts including: ‘The Dancing Bear’ by Michael Morpurgo and ‘Fly Eagle Fly’ by Christopher Gregorowski. Our Literacy and Language texts will consist of, ‘The Bogey Man and Trolls’ and ‘The Fly and The Fool’. If you would like to read stories with your children that would complement the children’s learning then we would suggest any of the following books:
In Maths, during this term, you will be covering a wide range of topics:
You will have opportunities to apply these skills within your maths learning by solving real life problems and puzzles in order to understand how maths forms a huge part of everyday life.
It would be really helpful if you continue to practise your maths and reading in addition to completing your weekly homework - please see the ‘useful links’ tab on the ‘Year Group Pages’ home page for easy access to the regular websites we use.
Finally, as we learn and make progress for our future, remember that we cannot replace time. 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 the next term in the lead up to Easter.
