Key Skills – 3rd November

Please remember that reading and spelling practice must happen every week and that ‘little and often’ will help these facts go into your long term memory. Key skills must be handed in every Wednesday. Dojos will be awarded every week for completed key skills.

1. Read every day and record in your reading diaries.
2. Complete the four in a row activities.
3. Practice your times tables using ‘Tables Master’ or ‘Hit the button’ and record your scores in your own table within your Key Skills. Remember we are looking for at least 2 tries on at least 4 days.
4. Practice your spelling from the list below. Remember we expect you to learn the spellings from the All section, if you would like an extra challenge you can learn from the Most and Some column.

Extreme Earth

Today Dahl Class started their new topic – Extreme Earth. We were busy looking at OS maps to see how the landscape is different in the UK. We had to locate the towns, rivers and where we might find hills and mountains. We also looked at the Atlases to find rivers around the world and used the devices to find out facts about how the land is shaped.

New PE Timetable

Please note that for this term we will have Dance on a Monday. For this children will need their indoor PE kit (shorts and t-shirt). On a Thursday we will be doing PE OUTSIDE. We will be outside in all weathers, provided the surface is safe. For this lesson children will require jogging/tracksuit bottom, hoodie/school rugby shirt and a change of socks. They will also need suitable footwear (plimsols are not approapriate as they do not provide sufficient grip). As we are expecting to be on the field, they will also need a carrier bag to put their muddy things into!

Thank you!
