We will be kicking off our week with the exciting day of DT where we will be using our plans and all the materials that you have kindly provided to make our castles. Thank you to all those parents who have offered to come in and help on Monday, if you haven't signed up but are free to come in please see your child’s class teacher tomorrow morning. In English this week we will be reading the beginning of the Julia Donaldson book ‘Zog and the Flying Doctors’. We will then be writing our own exciting middle and endings to the story. We will be focusing on using capital letters in the correct places. In Maths we are starting the week by comparing and ordering numbers to 50 and then by the end of the week we will be learning to count in multiples of 2. In Gymnastics we will begin to create our own gymnastics routines ready for an inter-class competition the following week.
Next week we will also be introducing the ‘Daily Mile’. This is where we will be putting on our trainers at least 3 times a week to use the new running track up on the top field. Our aim to is do 4 laps of the field which is roughly 1 mile at least 3 times each week. In order for us to do this the children will need suitable trainers in school at all times. Thank you for your support with this.
