End of Spring Term

Dear Parents,

We have had a very productive end to the spring term and the Easter holidays have approached very quickly! Last week the children worked extremely well in their respective groups for the fundraising afternoon; organising themselves, bringing in all the required equipment and managing the stalls. We were really impressed with how seriously they undertook this activity.

In English the children finished off their Ultimate Explorers unit by creating hand written guides, complete with pictures, titles and blurbs, which have made a great display. They then moved on to a short unit where they were Word Detectives, looking at and investigation different spelling patterns and rules such as hyphens, homophones and synonyms.

In Maths the class worked on percentage word problems, putting all their learned percentage knowledge in to practice by solving problems and even writing their own. This week they looked at nets of 3D shapes.

In RE we completed our unit Sacrifice by looking at the period of Lent, understanding all of its parts and explaining the importance of this time to Christians.

Their science and topic units were completed with lots of detailed and impressive work being brought in for homework. We hope to share this in the first week back before starting our new unit.

On Wednesday the children were able to have an extended Art lesson where they completed their work on Frame Structures by using art straws to build 2D shapes then expanding on them to create 3D frame structures that could then be covered to allow shelter.

After the Easter holidays the whole class will be attending swimming lessons on a Thursday morning, a letter regarding this was emailed out on the last day of term.

We hope you have a lovely, long and restful break ready to start the Summer term with lots of energy and enthusiasm!

Thank you as always for your continued support.

Mrs Debenham and Mrs Sandhu
