Welcome back!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter break and enjoyed the sunshine and mountains of chocolate! We have another busy term with lots of new things to be learning about.

 

The home learning for this week is:

Spellings- Please learn the spellings and put these words into a sentence. Please review the words that the children have already learnt as we do revisit these in our spelling checks.

Maths (consolidation) – Please complete the mystery number puzzle by reading the clues and writing the numbers in words in the cross word.

History(new learning)- This term we are going to be learning about The Romans. I would like the children to think about what they already know about The Romans and then what they would like to find out about the topic.  Please fill in the KWL grid.

 

Reminders

  • Please make sure the children have a water bottle in school every day. This is especially important with the weather getting hotter.
  • PE kits should be in school for every Wednesday.
  • This half term we will be visiting the garden every Wednesday afternoon.

Kestrel’s Well Being Day

Posted on May 26th, 2017 by Kestrel Class

We have had a fantastic day celebrating our mind and body!

The day began with a yoga session with Swift class followed by some Fitter Futures where we worked on our core muscles!

After break we read ‘Have you filled a bucket today?’ and thought about how we could all be bucket fillers!  Then we played Sun in the centre and told other children what we liked about them. We also had to go and write on children’s flowers things we liked about them.

Next we made mindfulness jars to help us when we want to feel calm as well as decorating smiley face biscuits!

To end our well being day we enjoy some fun outside in the sunshine with Nightingales playing tennis, football, Frisbee and golf to name a few things!

I hope you all enjoyed your day as much as I did and are feeling happy and confident for your half term. Enjoy and see you on the 5th!

Maths (consolidation) – On Monday we learnt about multiplication using partitioning(breaking the number into tens and ones). Complete the sheet practising this skill. Use the example to help!

To prepare for this I would like the children to have a discussion with adults from different generations about their fashion styles when they were growing up as well as researching on the internet or books.  What was the style in the 60s/70s/80s/90s/00s? Did they wear any interesting head or footwear?  What was the fashion accessories of the time. Please fill in the Mind Map or create your own poster about the fashion styles of your chosen decade.  Feel free to add pictures too!

Jazzy Jars- This week you got a letter about making your own jazzy jar! Please bring these in by 5th June or before if you have made them. The children can decorate the jars if they would like as well as filling them! Lets get creative!

Reminders:

  • Please make sure that home learning is handed in on time. Those children not completing homework or handing in homework that is not done to the best of their ability will complete it during detention.  If you have any problems with the home learning please let us know before the hand in day of Tuesday so we can go through the work with the children.
  • Please make sure the children have a water bottle in school every day. This is especially important with the weather getting hotter.
