Weekly Update (Week ending 10.5.19)

In English, the children have been practising for their grammar and reading tests this week. 


In maths, we have been continued to develop our mental arithmetic strategies. We have also recapped time conversions, how to use a protractor and fractions in preparation for their tests next week.


In other topic work, we learnt more about mountains and the circulatory system.. 


Please continue to sign reading diaries to confirm children are reading 5 times a week. Dojo points will be awarded for diaries signed and handed in on time on Wednesday. Please also encourage children to write their own book reviews.


NO HOMEWORK - Please can the children go to bed at a sensible time on Sunday evening and next week so that they are refreshed and ready to do their best?



Next week ……...



We will be preparing for the upcoming tests.



In maths we will be revising arithmetic skills and application for the reasoning papers ready for their SATS tests.


Science and Topic

In science, we will continue to look at the circulatory system. We will spend some time focussing on art skills in the afternoons as a break from revision.



Children could: identify the major rivers and mountains of the world. 


Homework (to be handed in on Wednesdays)

There is no whole class homework this week. We do ask that the children do some revision and have an early night Sunday and each night next week so they are refreshed for their tests. 


Please continue to ensure the children are reading. Please record this in their diaries, min. 5 in a week.



Dojo points will be awarded for homework which has been completed and returned/completed on time. 



Athletics and games.


Please remember Friday is 'Pizza and slumber day'. The children are allowed to come to school in pyjamas or sumber wear (no football kits). We will be making pizza's to have as an afternoon snack whilst watching some films.


Best wishes
