Hi everyone, 

 

This is the work for the week.  The English is on here for you to complete, as I know that some parents like to print the work out.  The Maths can be found on seesaw as it allows each question to be completed, but also you can see them much better! Don't forget that all of the English with the Topic is also posted onto seesaw every day and the children can complete it online, if they want to.

 

The most important thing is that the children are having a go at the work and sharing work with us.  

 

Enjoy your week,

This is the work for the week.  It is organised into documents, one for Maths and the other for English. Don't forget that all of this work is also posted onto seesaw every day and the children can complete it online, if they want to.

 

The most important thing is that the children are having a go at the work and sharing work with us.  As teachers we enjoy seeing all of their amazing work and telling them how wonderful they are doing.

Welcome back after the half term.  I hope that you all took some time to enjoy the glorious weather that we have had.  Below is the work for the week and the powerpoint that the children will need for Monday's lesson.  Please remember that the children can complete the work on paper.  

 

There are two word documents - one has all the Maths tasks and the other contains all of the English

 

I have made some changes as well. The English and Maths tasks can also be found on seesaw alongside the topic task. Each day the new activities will be posted and they are the same as the ones on here.  This will allow the children the chance to complete their work online instead, if they want to.

 

Please make sure that your child is posting the work that they are completing onto seesaw. We look forward to seeing their wonderful work and the fun that they have been having. 

 

From,

               Spring Term 2020

 

Happy new year to all our parents.

 

Last term the children raised £36 for the Noah's Ark Charity.  Thank you to everyone who supported our class at the Christmas fete.

 

This term our topic is all about the beautiful country in which we live - Wales.  The focus for our class is 'The Brecon Beacons'.

 

In LLC lessons the children will be reading the story 'The Seventh Seal' and writing their own creative stories.  They will also be producing non-chronological reports.

 

During the topic lessons the children have decided that they want to create their own countryside code and then rap it. They also want to plan a holiday for a family to Brecon.

The class will have PE every Wednesday and will need to bring in a PE kit on a weekly basis.  Homework will be handed out on a Thursday with reading books and will need to be returned on the following Monday. 

 

As part of the homework the class will be expected to learn a times table.  On a Friday a new spelling list will be provided and these will be tested the following Friday.

 

£1 per week for fruit tuck.
