Hello Oakmere

I hope you have all enjoyed your half term.  I am looking forward to seeing the children tomorrow and hearing about what they got up to. Hopefully everyone is rested and recuperated ready for our last half term together.

In English we are starting our final piece of written work for our Stone Aged Boy book.  The children will be using all the skills they have learnt over the past few weeks to plan and write their own version of the story.  In our Guided Reading lessons this week we will be looking at inference and what the words used by the author tell us.  Please don’t forget its spelling test on Monday.  Please remember to send in your child’s reading folder tomorrow so we can give out our special reading tokens.

In Maths we are still looking at measurement but have move onto mass and using grams and kilograms as our unit of measure.  We will be focusing on the three times table for the next few weeks to ensure the children are very confident with this table.  Parents of the year four children please don’t forget to practice the times table test at home.  These practices will help the children feel comfortable when they sit the real test sometime in the next two weeks.

Multiplication Tables Check - Mathsframe

The children will need their PE kits returned to school at the beginning of the week.  Please check that everything still fits and children are comfortable wearing the kits.  If the weather is good, we are hoping to have our Sports Day on Friday morning at St Josephs.

In History this week we are going to be doing a bit of gathering to see how difficult it was during the Stone Age to find enough food to survive.  In RE we will be looking reaching the end of our unit on Sikhism and looking at the role of the Gurdwara in Sikhism.  The children will be working on their Rounders and handball skills. In music the children will be exploring pitch and singing in French.  In Science we are continuing our work on plants.  The children will be creating their own grass heads and exploring what plants need to grow.

See you tomorrow.

Mrs Kelly
