13th - 17th June 2022

Highlights of the week:

Our English work this week involved looking at a diary entry by the Queen. The children had some lovely ideas of how she might spend her day as they were learning about the features and skills needed to write a diary entry.

In phonics we have been learning new letter groups of -are and -ear. These letter groups make the ‘air’ sound as in glare and bear. We will be bringing home a homework sheet to support our learning of this new letter group.

We have had several chances to meet up as a year group this week and work on our recorder performance so that we are ready for Friday! See you there!

This week in geography we were learning about London. We realised that, as a city, there wasn’t much green space but that we could find lots of landmarks and museums in the centre. We discovered that there is an airport in the city centre that can only be used by small planes. The children were excited to hear that one of the longest rivers in England flows through London, the River Thames.

In Maths we have started our new unit of position and direction. The children were taught ways to remember their right from left hand and how to move in a full turn, ½ turn and quarter turn. We got to use the Beebots to help us which is always good fun!

In Science, we carried out our investigation into which material was best for the Queen to fix her damaged roof. We investigated whether the material was waterproof, transparent and rigid. We then had to justify which material we thought she should use.

In RE we have begun looking at what authority means. We will be exploring why Christians feel Jesus has authority.

Home learning:

  • Your child has a phonics sheet to help them to consolidate their learning - please support them in completing this.
  • Please make sure you are reading with your child at least four times a week and commenting on their reading in their reading record book.
  • Please support your child to access Numbots online. It is recommended that children play Numbots for 10 minutes a day for maximum impact.
