Today the children have loved 'Wild Tribe'! They have been busy whittling sticks and making fires. Thank you for all of the donations of items so far, we really appreciate it.
This week is full of lots of exciting learning! We will be writing our own time travel story in English using some of the great ideas that we came up with last week. The story will include a build-up, dilemma and resolution. I wounder if you could orally rehears your story to someone at home and include some exciting sentences openers and expanded noun phrases.
In science we are continuing our learning of electricity by creating circuits, learning electrical symbols and following electrical diagrams.
In Maths we are focusing on place value, we will be looking at 1000's, 100's, 10's and 1's, recognising the place value of each digit, partitioning, representing and estimating 4 -6 digit numbers. We would really like to see you continuing to practice your times tables each week.

Last week our Pupils of the week were Tyler, Arthur and Ethan H! Well done to all of you!
Please continue to read at home and record in your reading records along with practicing your times tables and spellings. Spellings will be handed out on a Monday and the children will be tested on a Friday each week.
We will be making some phone calls to catch up with you over the next week to chat about how you feel your child has settled back into school and to give you a chance to ask any questions.
Wow what a great first week back! It was so lovely to see you all!
You all came back to school with such enthusiasm and support for each other. It is not easy returning after such a long break and everything is all so new in terms of routine, rules, classes and circumstances. So well done all of you!
We are going to dive into our Learning Adventure this week which is all about “The Pilgrim Fathers” and “The Mayflower”. The week will be very busy with lots of learning around this topic. If you would like to find out more information at home, please bring in your information to share with us.
Remember to keep practicing you times tables, you need to know them all by the end of the year, and to keep reading and filling in your reading record. There will be a list of spellings coming home each Monday for you to practice all week and we will test you on them on Friday.
A quick reminder that Wild Tribe (Forest school) is on a Monday and PE is on a Thursday. Please come to school in the appropriate clothing for these activities and remember we will be staying in these clothes all day due to the current circumstances.
We are looking forward to seeing you all on Monday. We hope that you have had a lovely, relaxing holiday and that you are ready to see your friends, get to know your new class and get stuck into some exciting learning. We can`t wait.
I have attached a letter that will be going to each of the Year 4/5 classes and this will give you a lot of information about the year ahead.
We will pass on the Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 spelling lists next week.
Please have a relaxing weekend and bring your enthusiasm and creativity to school with you next week.
