Welcome to Turquoise Class
PE days: We will not have any swimming lessons this half term. Indoor and outdoor PE lessons are subject to change and as such, you MUST have indoor and outdoor PE kits in school at all times.
Homework and spellings:
Each week, children will be given a piece of mathematics or English homework. This homework includes learning spellings.
Learning logs will be given out on Friday 11th January. Please note that you are expected to complete two of these as a minimum but that you can choose to do more if you wish. These tasks are intended to be broad so that you can interpret them as creatively as you wish. We had some super ones last half term and would love to be able to take some photographs of the ones completed this half term to show you all!
Reading remains a key priority and we expect to see reading diaries signed at least four times each week. The reading challenge remains the key part of the homework.
Have a browse of the photographs below to see what we have been learning!
We have been learning new vocabulary for different items of clothing recently. Here we are matching the garment to the correct word.
This week we have discussed how we act online and how this can differ to the way we act in person. We made posters about how to be a good friend online and what to do if people are not being a good friend to us. We found out that over two thirds of the class have been upset by images they have seen online or comments that have been made. Please talk to your children about what to do in this situation. Take a look at the newsletter for some information about an app that explores online safety - all of the children said that they would like to look at this at home in order to help them.
In our science lessons, we have been learning all about the human body. Ask your children about how we made blood using household ingredients!
