What a Wonderful World! 
 
Our topic this term is 'What a Wonderful World'. Our first unit of work in Science is 'Earth and Space'. 
 
In Science the children have been learning about the Moon's movement in relation to Earth. For homework, I would like them to complete a 'moon diary' over the next 30 days. A letter and diary was sent home on Monday 7th September, but here is another in case it becomes misplaced. 
 
 
Here are some pictures of our classroom. 
Homework
Homework this term will consist of reading, times table and spelling practice. Homework will be set on a Friday, and children will be tested on their spellings and times tables the following Wednesday. Due to the ongoing pandemic, children will be unable to change their reading books regularly. Each Friday, the children will have the opportunity to select a new reading book - if your child reads at a faster pace, they may be provided with multiple books at once. 
 
Please find a spelling booklet below that children can use to practise their spellings. There are many different activities the children can try. Children will be familiar with these booklets as they have used them at school. 
 
Please find a reading question sheet below that includes questions to ask your children during reading at home.
