Other - Maths or English homework will also be given out each week. This will usually be related some what we have been learning in class.
If you have any questions, please ask :)
I cannot believe that we are at the start of our final term already. I hope you all managed to have a relaxing break :)
Our topic for this next half term is Amazing Amazon. The children are really enjoying learning all about the rainforest and have already began to produce some super work!
Our main topic subjects are:
English - Looking at stories from other cultures, which will help us plan and write our very own rainforest story and debate - with a focus on deforestation.
Geography - Researching what a biome is; the different types of biomes around the world and the locations and structure of rainforests.
Art - Creating our very own art projects on the different animals that live in the Amazon rainforest using a range of drawing and painting techniques.
In maths, we are focusing on fractions and then we will be moving onto decimal equivalents of fractions.
We are hopeful that the weather will start to improve shortly so we can even squeeze in some outdoor learning. Keep your fingers crossed for us.
If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to come and see me.
