This week we have been learning about robots as part of our writing project. We used lots of “boxes and bits” to make a friend for the robot in the story we have been watching. The story is a film clip with no words and we have been exploring how to describe a setting and feelings of a character.

In maths we have been learning that “2D shapes are thin and flat and 3D shapes are big and fat!” We sorted the shapes into groups by what features they have. We learnt that vertices are another name for corners.

We did an investigation to find out if we could make a cuboid with 12 straws. We made predictions and explained our reasoning and some of us had to persevere and try lots of times.

We are still waiting for the seeds in our seed investigation to germinate!

We came up with a headline last week about spellings!!

“A spelling is for life, not just for Friday!!”

Have a great weekend! 

How you can help!

  • PE days are Monday afternoon and Wednesday morning. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school (clearly labelled) and remove any earrings.
  • Homework is due on a Monday. It is the children’s responsibility to make sure that their homework is completed every week and placed into the homework box on a Monday morning in order for it to be marked.
  • Spelling tests are on a Monday morning and the following week’s spellings will be handed out on the same day.

Home Learning

Here are some activities that you can do at home:

  • Keep practising our ‘Harvest Samba’ song

  • This week we have been trying really hard to extend our sentences and make them a little bit longer. Can you practise writing sentences using conjunctions? Conjunctions are words that join sentences together like ‘and’, ‘because’, ‘but’ and ‘so’.
  • Here is a useful website to help practise spellings each week. Spell Zone has a range of games which link to the children’s spelling rule for each week. Why don’t you try the word search or have a go at the bouncing anagrams?
