Our topic this half term is:
PE this term is tennis. We will starting by familarising ourselves with the tennis ball and racket before practising some skills and developing into some matches!
The PTFA have again purchased a great times table package for the school called 'TT Rockstars'. There are lots of different areas the children could go into including the ‘Garage’ or ‘Studio’. The Garage is a training
mode where they work through the tables (recommended) and the Studio is random questions up to the 12x12 times table. Ultimately, we hope this makes learning the times tables fun while they become more fluent and knowledgeable in their times table recall. They can also earn ‘coins’ to update their avatar rock star!
All of the children are on the Renaissance Reader book scheme and they should be bringing home a number banded book every day. We already have lots of children who are keen to complete their quizzes. I have reminded the children that the quiz tests their understanding of the book and as we are looking for at least 80%+ for a pass rate on their quiz, we always advise to read the book through at least twice before attempting the quiz. Children should be taking quizzes regularly (ideally once every 2-3 weeks) and they should know the results of their quiz. Remember you can register with the website and receive text/email alerts with your child's test results.
Please make sure you are continuing to read regularly with your child ~ they should be bringing their books home EVERY day!!
Please ensure that your child has a water bottle in school every day and that they bring it home to be washed out and refilled.
