We hope that you have all had a wonderful half term break and lots of adventures! We are looking forward to another exciting half term. Our new geography topic is Viva Espanol! We will be finding out about the main cities and geographical features of Spain. Through our mantle of the expert story, we will be helping a tour operator persuade new tourists to visit Madrid and join them on guided walks around the city. Through this we will be creating and drawing maps of the city of Madrid and discover main points of interest.
This half term we will be investigating forces and magnets. We will be finding out how can you make a car move? How can you change the shape of the plasticine? Which magnet is the strongest? Can you sort objects into magnetic and non-magnetic?
Design and Technology
Our design and technology project will be Spanish food and looking at a healthy Mediterranean diet. We will be following and creating our own Spanish recipes.
We will continuing visiting the forest school area every other Tuesday afternoon. We will be going out in all weather, so please make sure kits include plenty of layers (Water proof coats and trousers, jogging bottoms, jumper, gloves and hat. Please no jeans, as these can be uncomfortable if they get wet) Again, make sure kits are clearly labelled.
PE will continue to be on alternate Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please check weekly reminders on the website. It is important children bring into school the correct kit. They should have in their kit: A white or navy blue t shirt, a navy blue jumper or zip up hoodie, navy jog suit bottoms or shorts, trainers and spare socks.
We will change books once a week and children can take home a book to enjoy. Please make sure book bags are in school every day. It is lovely to read your comments in reading diaries, please make sure you fill in reading diaries every time you read, as we are continuing our reading challenge in class – the more you read the more chance of winning a class treat!
Please continue to log in to TT Rocks. This is a really fun way to learn multiplication tables. Keep having a go as much as you can, the more times you play the more rewards you get and the better you become at your multiplication tables! Remember to challenge Mrs Humphreys or Mrs O'Grady!
We are looking forward to working hard this half term in Daffodils class.
As always, if you have any worries or questions, please let us know.
Mrs Kavannah, Mrs Humphreys, Mrs McTweed and Mrs Ryan
