The Grand Canyon and Traditional Tales

Dear Parents,

The first half of this Spring Term is certainly flying by.  The children have started the new topic of ‘The Grand Canyon’ and have been exploring the geographic features of this ‘Wonder of the World’ and considering the different biomes that exist within it.  They have also used The Grand Canyon as inspiration for poetry writing.  Over the past two weeks, the children have been focused on Traditional Tales and this coming week will see them write their own invented version.  In Maths, we have explored Multiplication and Division and will be looking at Fractions next.  These units rely very heavily on accurate Times Table knowledge and I have asked all the children to keep up the good work and to practice their Times Tables every day.

Our school trip to a Synagogue is only a couple of weeks away (8th February).  Children will need to bring a water bottle and their normal mid-morning snack in a small backpack.  They will be in school uniform but should ensure they have a jumper and coat for the trip.

I hope you all have enjoyable weekends!
Mrs Hunter
