This term we are starting a new topic called 'Traders and Raiders'. We have started off our learning by designing and making fearsome Saxon weapons. During this topic we will learn about the Anglo- Saxons and the vicious Vikings. The children will learn all about the life of Saxons and Vikings, including how they lived and where they came from. As part of our topic, we will be visiting Merton park on Monday 19th March to spend the day living as a Viking and learning more about their way of life.
Homework: Homework will be sent out every Thursday and is expected to be returned each Tuesday (or earlier). Homework returned on time will earn children 5 You’ve Been Spotteds and 10 house points. Children that do not return homework on time will complete it during break times until it is complete. Homework will consist of times tables practise and spellings practise. Children will also be expected to read at home daily – can you please make sure reading records are dated and signed each time you read at home. All homework must be completed neatly, to the same standard as work in school.
PE: PE will take place on Wednesday afternoons. Children will need to bring their PE kit to school on a Monday and take it home on a Friday. All jewellery, including earrings, must be removed (covering with a plaster is not allowed). All children are required to take part in PE and forgetting their kit twice or more will result in lunch time detentions.
Author of the half term: Our author of the half term is Cressida Cowell. We will be reading 'How to train your Dragon'.
Reading books: Reading books must be in school every day and your child is expected to change their reading book regularly. Children are expected to read at home daily – can you please make sure reading records are dated and signed each time you read at home. Please check your childs progress and encourage them to read and change their books frequently.
