November 2017 BE A REID'S READER!
Our class have been writing book reviews. Do you like the sound of any of these? Or send Mrs Reid your own book review.
The White Horse of Zennor by Michael Morpurgo
Farmer Veluna has a sudden problem with his calves, but does that change their lives or will Annie and Arthur be able to bring back happiness? Farmer Veluna appears to be a happy, joyful character. Annie and Arthur are adventurous and enjoy the freedom their parents give them. I really enjoyed this story because it’s a bit mystical, but also teaches you to stay brave. My favourite part was when Annie and Arthur heard someone calling non-stop for help! I would recommend this book – especially for people who like stories with a bit of mystery in them.
Peter Duck by Amy Fulton
This story is about a crew who live on a ship and Peter Duck who joins them. Captain Flint, Peter Duck and John are the leaders and they are not afraid to give their opinions! Nancy is quite different to everyone else; she doesn’t let anything stand in her way!I really like this book because it is very mysterious and doesn’t reveal everything at once. It is also a bit scary because of the storms at sea! I would recommend this book as it hooks the reader.
Look at our trip to the river. We are observing the organisms living in the water, taking measurements of the river and studying the erosion / deposition - all whilst having fun splashing in the water!!
Welcome back to school – we hope you have had a lovely summer holiday.
In this first half term we will be covering a variety of topics. For the first few weeks we will be working on the topic of ‘Rivers’, this has a geographical focus but will link to several other areas of the curriculum.
Other areas of study are:
Literacy— Stories and the use of speech, explanations (linked to science) and newspaper reports (linked to river flooding)
Numeracy – the main focus will be on becoming more confident with the place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and being able to apply them in different problem situations.
RE– Christmas and Divali
PE– netball, football,
Music— We will be learning to play the recorder.
Art – Looking at the work of Rene Magritte
ICT – Using sensors and drawing graphs
PE will usually take place on Monday and Thursday, however other events or the weather may cause this to change. Please ensure the children have their complete PE kit (in school Monday—Friday).
The children will need black / blue shorts (above the knee) and a white t-shirt for indoor PE. Long hair must be tied back. The children will need trainers and a plastic bag to put them in (if they get muddy from the field) for outdoor PE. As the winter draws near they may also wish to wear a tracksuit.
Information about homework is further down this page.
We hope you are refreshed and ready to go as it is going to be a busy half term.
Mrs Reid and Mrs Redwood.
