Our Learning Journey This Year
The children will be given homework tasks each Friday. The homework will be used to consolidate the children’s knowledge of what has been covered in class. There may also be tasks asking the children to find out information for a topic. It is very important that the children complete these homework tasks to the best of their ability. If they are having difficulty, please ask them to inform me and I will be happy to explain it again. The homework is due in on the following Wednesday. If homework is not completed there is the consequence of missing break times the following day until it is completed.
Outdoor PE - Tuesday
Indoor PE - Wednesday
Please could the children have a PE kit in school all week as there are times when the timetable changes and our PE lessons move to another day. We will be having outdoor PE sessions on a Tuesday afternoon and Swimming will be taking place on Thursday afternoons. If a PE kit has not been brought in, there is the consequence of missing break time.
The swimming kit consists of: swimming costume/swimming shorts, towel and goggles if they wish.
The P.E Kit should include black shorts, joggers/leggings, white t-shirt, zip up jumper and pumps/trainers.
Please note that jewellery, should not be worn to school to prevent injury in P.E. Children with long hair will need a hair tie for P.E.
If an incorrect PE kit has been brought in, a kit warning will be issued. Two consecutive kit warnings will result in a consequence of missing break time.
The children are encouraged to keep a roll on deodorant in their locker so that they can apply it when needed.
We will be taking part in forest school sessions every Thursday
Children are to come into school in their Forest School kit on the day they are doing Forest along with their school black trainers in a bag to change into. Can you please make sure that your child is wearing a long-sleeved top and pants that cover the whole of their legs. For footwear children can wear wellies or an old pair of trainers. Please remember that children must wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.
STEAM: Properties and Changes of Materials
In our Science lessons, we found out that materials will dissolve, react, float or sink in water. We mixed water with: salt, sugar, bicarbonate of soda, glitter flakes and Papier-mâché powder.
We then discussed any changes that occurred and thought how we could get the 'soluble materials' (materials that dissolve) and 'insoluble materials' (materials that don't dissolve) back from the water. We found out that we could reverse the process using evaporation and filtration.
PSHE: Anti-bullying Week
The theme of Anti-bullying week 2021 was 'One Kind Word'. Throughout the week, we carried out a number of anti-bullying activities about hope and the positive and kind things we can do to halt hurtful behaviour in its tracks.
