Welcome back to school after the Easter break. We are about to embark on our final term of learning together and will start with a topic that I know the children have been looking forward to named ‘The Amazon Rainforest’.
Thank you for all your help ensuring that all homework is completed on time. As we look towards transition into year six we will be introducing some extra homework in order to support the children with ongoing revision of punctuation and grammar. This homework will be stuck into the green books as usual and will take a similar format to work the children have already completed in school. To summarise, the children should complete the following each week
Spellings – say, look, cover, write, check
Grammar & Punctuation activity sheet
Maths worksheet – related to our in class learning
One topic task of your choosing
Reading diary completed with reading Monday-Friday
Remember that you can keep up to date with our learning on our blog site www.brandyclass.wordpress.com . PE will be taught in school this half term. but could take place on any day depending on weather conditions, so please make sure your kit is in school every day. We will be training for the Quick Cricket festival, more details will follow.
Finally we are planning a trip to Amazon World to enrich our learning about this term’s exciting topic. More details will follow in a separate letter. Many thanks for your continued support. As always, if you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me, my door is always open.
