Dear Parents,

 

We have had a busy week. The children have worked hard and enjoyed the sunshine.
 

In Creative writing, the children wrote a piece called You’ve Got Mail and wrote a description of receiving a parcel or letter in the post. In Literacy, we introduced a shared reading lesson. This lesson focuses on developing reading comprehension skills and inference, as well as looking at literary techniques used by authors. This week we read the first chapter of ‘My life as a cat’.


In Geography, we continued our topic on Rivers, identifying key towns, the source and mouth of world rivers and giving the children the opportunity to develop their map reading skills and make use of indices.


In Mathematics, we continued our Number and Place Value topic, we focused on ordering numbers, identifying the value of digits and adding and subtracting 100’s, 1000’s and 10 000’s.

 

In Science, we introduced the children to our topic on Forces. The children learnt about the forces they encounter in daily life and learnt about the discovery of Gravity by Isaac Newton. The children learnt the difference between Weight and Mass, please ask your child which units they are measured in.

 

This week we have been incorporating some PSHE lessons based on kindness and respecting each other . I feel the children have really benefited from this, as the children have been happier and playing well with each other. 

 

There are a few requests that we would like to share with you. The first is that children should be bringing in two snacks for morning break, as they often tend to be hungry when coming in from break. The second is to be wearing correct school uniform: School shoes- not trainers unless there has been a letter written to us to let us know new school shoes are being ordered.
 

Shana Tovah and Shabbat Shalom!

 

Kind Regards

Dear Parents,

 

It was lovely 'meeting' you all on Wednesday during our Meet the Teacher evening. It definitely felt strange meeting via Zoom rather than in person. It has been amazing getting to know all the children and observing the dynamics of the class. 

 

We are now reaching the end of our first full week. The children have worked hard completing a variety of assessments. In Creative writing, the children wrote a piece called the Burglary and discovered one of their favourite stories was based on one. Do ask them about it? 
In Geography, we started our topic on Rivers, identifying key towns along UK rivers and giving the children the opportunity to develop their map reading skills and making use of indices.
In Mathematics, we began our Number and Place Value topic, we focussed on rounding numbers up to to 100,000.

In Science, we introduced the children to our Forces topic. The children learnt about the forces they encounter in daily life and played a game of Forces Bingo.

This week we have been incorporating a lot of PSHE lessons based on friendships and respecting each other. These lessons will be ongoing as we hope that the children can develop their attributes of respect towards one another I will keep you updated about their progress.

 

There are a few requests that we would like to share with you. The first is that children should be bringing in two snacks for morning break, as they often tend to be hungry when coming in from break.

Have a restful weekend and Shabbat Shalom!

Welcome back! It is hard to believe that the children have not been together in school since March. They have settled back into the school routine and we hope that they have enjoyed their first couple of days. We have thoroughly enjoyed teaching them.

 

This week we have started assessing the children. They have completed a Non-Verbal reasoning paper and been assessed on their Spellings and Mental maths skills. We will carry out more assessments next week including reading comprehension and mathematical reasoning. We do not want the children to be anxious about these tests; they are simply to show us where the gaps are and where individual children need extra support or extension. Once we have marked and analysed the assessments, we will be in touch with each of you to discuss your child's results and needs.

 

We would like to remind you that PE is on Tuesday and Thursday and that the children should come into school in their PE kit on those days.

 

Please send in any homework folders as we seem to be missing a few.

 

Homework will begin next week- we will tell you more about it at our Meet the Teacher meeting on Wednesday.

 

We look forward to seeing you, albeit virtually next week and to telling you more about the exciting year ahead.

 

Shabbat Shalom
