Posted on November 1st, 2016 by Sparrow Class

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome back everyone! We hope you had a lovely half term and are ready for a fun run up to Christmas!

Weekly Learning

English – Poetry

Maths – Rounding/ Introduction to Fractions

Science –Human Body- The skeleton

Phonics – Phase 5 alternative pronunciations for –ow –ie –ea -er sounds.

PSHCE – Getting on and falling out

Home Learning Autumn term 2:

This term children will be receiving maths and grammar homework as well as weekly spelling, mental maths and English comprehension. The children will be expected to complete the work and return it on the following Monday of every week. The children will still receive their spellings and our test will now take place on a Monday morning at the beginning of our English lesson. As cursive handwriting is a big focus this year, can you please ensure your child completes the handwriting sheets themselves as this is additional practise using pencil.
