Poppin' into the Edwardian times
This term we will be looking at the Edwardian Period and Mary Poppins in class. We will be covering a variety of different units such as making kites, teddy bears, chalk drawing, Edwardian tea parties and chalk drawings.
Now that the warm weather is drawing near please remember to have water bottles and hats in school.
Please can children bring in PE kits on a Monday each week and we will send them back home on a Friday.
Week Commencing: Monday 14th June
In English this week we will be writing a setting description for when Mary Poppins and the children jump into the chalk painting. We will be using a wide range of skills by trying to include onomatopoeia, alliteration, expanded noun phrases, simile, metaphors and personification.
In Maths, we are working on fractions at the moment. Year 3 are nearly finished with their second fraction unit and are working on comparing fractions. While Year 4 are just finishing up fractions and are moving onto decimals this week.
To help support fractions at home please can all children continue to practise their time's tables as these are an essential part of the unit.
In the run-up to the production and sports day, we will be focusing on dancing, athletics and rounders in the afternoons and will not have any other topic work at the moment. Please can all children bring in their PE kits on a Monday and we will send them back home on a Friday. This then gives us the freedom to do PE throughout the week as our schedule allows.
