Dear parents and carers,
It is week 7 already! The children are really engaged with their learning and continue to show good learning behaviours.
We continue to update the school website weekly, under the section titled ‘Support at home’. This section contains more information about what we will be covering in class each week and links to tasks that your child can complete at home if they are absent from school. These tasks should only be completed if your child is absent from school so that they can continue their learning at home if they are well enough to do so.
This week in Science we are learning about fossils and Mary Anning. This links to our writing in English as the children will be writing a biography about Mary Anning and her life. We will continue to look at ways we can organise our writing using paragraphs and subheadings as well as the importance of chronology. In maths we are continuing our work on addition and subtraction, particularly focusing on subtraction with exchanging. We will be using lots of concrete representations to support the children with their learning. In RE, we are looking at the story of David and Goliath, and considering how David’s faith in God gave him strength.
We would like the children to complete the following homework this week to be completed by next Monday (19/10/20):
Thank you for your continued support,
Miss Bayman and Miss Paish – 3BP
