Hasper Class Newsletter Thursday 8th September 2016
Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope you had an excellent summer break.
It has been a pleasure teaching your children this week…long may it continue!
Our topic this term is the Anglo-Saxons and we plan to visit the Sutton Hoo gallery at the British Museum later this term as well as build shelters as if we were new arrivals in the country.
Please send in old newspapers as we would welcome these for use in art.
PE – Wednesday & Friday.
Homework – in by Tuesday.
English – This week we did some early term assessments in handwriting and spelling and wrote a recount of our summer holiday.
Next week we will be undertaking activities related to The Witches by Roald Dahl.
Maths – This week our focus was on multiplication whilst next week we will look at place value.
Science – This week a topic focusing on digestion, teeth and the food chain was introduced through a paired activity to see what we already know….and what we’d like to find out.
Next week we’ll look into the human digestive system in more depth!
Topic – This week we shared existing knowledge of the Anglo-Saxons.
Next week – where did the Anglo-Saxons come from?
This coming Tuesday 13th September would have been Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday. We will be celebrating the work of one of the world’s greatest children’s storytellers in school but would also like your child to bring a piece of work in from home. By Tuesday 13th, please could your child either draw or write a description of their favourite Roald Dahl character. This should be no larger than A4 and should have their name and class clearly written on the reverse.
