This week we have been getting stuck in with all things creative and active. We have been exploring with colour, creating sea turtles and observing closely as we start self portraits. During PE, we have been developing ball skills, in particular throwing and catching.

We have fully immersed ourselves in our new topic Survival and have been discussing our focused text in English called The Journey. This book explores the journey of refuges as they are forced to leave their home countries travelling into the unknown.

Each week we are working with the children to secure the spelling of the year 3/4 common exception words. Any over learning you can do at home will help your child. 3-and-4-common-exception-words-word

Next week

Next week is Shakespeare week, during which we will collapse the timetable so that the children can fully benefit from active story telling where they will be reading, inventing, creating and performing scenes about The Tempest.

In Maths, we will begin challenging ourselves learning about place value to 1000. Attached is a fun game you can play at home with your child Round the Four Dice .

As the weather is becoming colder, please can you ensure that your child comes to school with a coat.
