English and Maths information:

In English the children will finish writing their superhero stories and then edit and improve their work. The children are very excited  to share these with you at our project outcome! They will also be writing a recount of their superhero day and an evaluation of their project.

In maths we will be learning to name and describe properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We will encourage children to use keys words such as sides, edges, vertices and faces in their descriptions. The children will also be learning about lines of symmetry.

We are focusing on number formation as we have noticed many children are still reversing their numbers or starting and finishing in the incorrect place. Please can you ensure that your child is able to write the digits 1-9 correctly and practice this at home.

Other curriculum news:

The children will be making their superhero capes this week in preparation for our catwalk on Tuesday. They will also take part in a range of superhero activities on Tuesday as part of the finale to our project.

General Informatio:n:

Project and My Maths homework (including My Maths log ins), have now been set and sent home. Please find homework sheet in ‘Related Learning’ on our Year Group page. Your child has until the end of this half term to complete and bring in their homework, which will be presented in class. If you have any questions please just ask.

PE lessons take place on a Thursday and Friday. Please can you ensure that your child has the correct labelled PE kit in school everyday.

Please note: The Government have now undated the interim framework objectives for the end of KS1 (see link in related learning). This document was published on 14th September so please be aware that there have been some changes from the document we gave you at the meeting.
