Week beginning 13th March
It was good to meet with you all last week and to share your child’s achievements so far. Don’t forget that if there any issues or questions, please let us know. This week, I think, is a fairly normal one, so nothing to distract us from our learning!
We are stuck firmly in the Victorian workhouse this week as we continue in English to find out about the exploits of Jim, in the novel Street Child by Berlie Doherty. Later in the week, we will be writing an entry for Jim’s diary and a letter from Jim to his sisters, recounting events since they last met. Our history learning will also focus on the workhouse as we take a virtual tour this week.
In maths we start the week with co-ordinates and will end the week by dipping our toes in the murky water s of the 24 hour clock. Our science is progressing well, and this week we look at the last area we need to cover this term, which are switches. That will leave us plenty of time to concentrate on our DT learning, where we are designing a money container. This week we are trying some basic sewing stitches before moving on to the designing stage.
It is the last swimming this week, so expect progress certificates to follow and we are leading the Lent service at school on Tuesday. Also, I do hope to plant the potatoes that have been chitting on our windowsill since half term sometime this week.
Finally, congratulations to Chloe, who received our behaviour award last week.
