What are we learning about?
Beth ydym ni'n dysgu?
Our context for learning is:
(THEME) What a Wonderful World!
This is a geography based topic where we will be learning about countries around the world and the wonders they contain. So far we've learnt about the seven Ancient Wonders of the World.
(SCIENCE) Electricity, Light and Sound
We will be investigating how light travels, why our ears can hear sound and what makes a circuit work.
Dates this half term
P.E Every Wednesday afternoon in the hall. We are currently studying dance. Barefoot, shorts and a house t-shirt/house colour is required.
Games Every Friday afternoon. We are learning about large ball skills and focusing on Netball and rugby. Please ensure appropriate outdoor clothing is in school during the winter months i.e. long sleeved tops and tracksuit bottoms.
Reading Everyone should be reading regularly, where possible every day. It is important that we read a variety of texts to build our fluency and understanding. Please comment and sign in your child's 'Reading Together' booklet every time you hear them read. If your child does not have one of these booklets, they should aim to complete a book review in their Review Diaries after each completed book. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the school.
Written Homework: Please continue to check the quality of written tasks completed at home - please ask your child if they have focused on their targets and put 100% effort into the task as they would in class. I am now expecting pupils to be writing extended sentences, using an extended vocabulary range, connectives and various techniques to make their writing more interesting e.g. exciting 'Alan Peat' sentences, simile, metaphor, personification. Writing should be accurately punctuated with full stops, capital letters, question marks, commas to separate clauses and speech marks should be used to denote direct speech. (Reminder - speech should be punctuated before closing speech marks.)
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to me.
