Dear Ginkgo Class Parents,
This term we are continuing to look at a range of genres and texts in literacy through which we will be working on developing the children's composition, vocabulary and punctuation. In maths we will continue with our number work and we will also be doing of shape and measure work. We are starting off the term with a big focus on multiplication and division and so would appreciate you helping the children to learn their 2,5 and 10 times tables. Our science topic is ‘Animals including humans’ and our geography based topic is ‘Living on an Island’ in which we will research the UK and compare and contrast it with the Galapagos Islands. This will also link with our Literacy work on the Katie Morag stories by Mairi Hedderwick.
Please ensure that your children are completing their homework, learning their spellings and reading regularly at home. It has a big impact on their learning as it helps to consolidate what we have been working on during the week. We would still appreciate any help with listening to readers so if you can spare an hour once a week please let one of us know.
Mrs Seal, Mrs Cruz & Mrs Simmons.
