Investigator Class Term 1: Week 5

Last week, refreshed our knowledge of deciduous and evergreen trees before our Upper School Woodland Walk. We looked at parts of a flower and discovered how different plants pollinate.

This week:


We begin our week with an activity where we complete a story already written, from a visual stimulus. This will be a warm activity before we create our own woodland tales on Wednesday! We will have a big emphasis on re-reading our writing and editing it to ensure all content, spelling, punctuation and grammar are correct before we polish our written pieces on Friday.


We complete our maths unit on Place Value this week; ending the week with a small assessment.


Homework


Thank you for helping and encouraging the children to complete their homework.


Mental Arithmetic homework should be completed and handed in on Wednesday morning, English Skills homework should be completed and handed in on Thursday morning.


Spelling Tests take place on Thursday.


Snacks - In the Upper School, break and lunchtime are later. Please encourage your child to bring a piece of fruit to eat at break time if possible, they really are hungry by lunchtime. Please do not provide unhealthy snacks to eat at this time of day. Feel free to contact me if you wish to contribute to fruit provided by school or if you would like assistance in providing a snack.


Please do ensure all children have a waterproof jacket to come into school with as children are not able to play outside in wet weather without one. The walled garden is quite wet under foot so it is a good idea for children to also have a spare pair of shoes with them too.


Have a wonderful week!



With best wishes,


Mrs Burbedge
