Welcome to the second half of the spring term! Our new novel for English will be Animals of Farthing Wood and our humanities topic will be Mayan history. In science, we will be learning about evolution. SATs books, kindly purchased by the FRoGS, have been given to the children. In their homework books, they have written which pages to complete. The other books will remain at school and we will vary which books and pages we send home over the coming weeks.
A couple of websites which relate to our topics and also to revision of maths and English:

- PE will take place on a Tuesday afternoon.
- Homework will be related to current learning in maths and English and will be reviewed as a whole class. We have found this has a positive effect on children's confidence with their homework and ensures that misconceptions are addressed immediately. Please ensure that your child asks for help with their homework whenever they require, this is fantastic preparation for secondary school as independence is key!
- Spellings and multiplication tables will be handed out on a Monday and tested on a Friday. Homework will go out on a Friday and be returned to school on a Wednesday.
Homework will be sent out weekly. The sheet is divided into 3 sections with the first section being for everybody to have a go at. The next two sections are progressively more challenging and are for children to have a go at if they wish! Don't forget to just have a go and ask for help if you need it.
