WELCOME TO NORTH AMERICA CLASS
PE days will be on Tuesday and Friday but this can change so please ensure PE kits are in school all week. We are lucky to have a sports coach working with us during the Friday session which will be in the mornings so don't forget your PE kits!
Homework Celebration will be on a Monday this half term so don't forget to bring your Homework book - one piece is expected each week. All children have been given the homework grids for Summer 2.
Reading diaries will also be checked regularly and at least 4 signatures will be expected. Please share any new vocabulary you have learnt with the class. If you read 4 times and have signatures from an adult you will get a Dojo! Don't forget our whole school challenge to get 100 reads a week as a class.
Times tables should be practiced at home every week. This year you need to practice your 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s. Perhaps you could come up with a fun game to help?
Spellings should be learnt each week and you will find the spelling lists below for each week. They will also be send home in reading diaries. The weekly spelling test will be on a Friday unless stated on the spelling slip.

This week we put our maths knowledge to the test and went on a maths hunt around the quad. We tried to find and answer as many questions as possible in the time given. We had so much fun and amazed Miss Shewen with how much we remembered.
Take a look at the fantastic woodland poems we have written this week.
