Mrs Mossom and Mrs Smith
Welcome to the Spring Term Hawthorn class! We hope you managed to rest and relax over the Christmas holidays.
January School Closure
As we are sure you are aware, school is now closed to most children. However, we will be using Class Dojo and this web page to set tasks. Due to the limitations of Class Dojo for setting some larger tasks, we will sometimes link you to this page to access some work. This page will be updated frequently and previous tasks will remain accessible lower down the page.Thank you all for being so amazing and, as ever, please email us with any questions or problems.
In Maths this term we will be continuing to focus on Multiplication and Division with a particular focus on 6,7 and 8 times tables. After that we will be calculating the area of shapes which will follow on from our perimeter shape work last term.
In our writing lessons this term we will be exploring Adventure stories, which will link to our new topic of the Romans. The texts that we will write will have a particular focus on setting descriptions and punctuated speech. We will then be moving onto our next non-fiction unit, persuasive writing.
We have 2 very exciting books to read this term as our class novels, as well as lots of non fiction pieces to study in whole class reading.
In PE, we will be competing in the Berkshire Virtual School Games, as well as gymnastics in our other session.
STAR OF THE WEEK!
As part of anti-bullying week, we thought about who are support network could be and wrote down the names of five people we could talk to if we were unhappy about something.
