This week in Lincolnshire 6

Week beginning Monday 15th April

 

Welcome back to Term 5 - where has the year gone? What a busy start it has been to the Summer Term - the children have settled back in really quickly and have launched into the term with great enthusiasm.

 

In science this week, we begin our new topic of Light Theory. The children collected all their previous knowledge from past learning on topics such as, light and shadow, Earth and Space and sun safety and shared this knowledge in groups, before moving around the room to collect any extra knowledge from the other groups. It was a very informative lesson and forms the basis for lots of exciting experiments and research this half term. 

In history, we now move on to learning about the causes of World War 2. Of course, there is much overlap with the causes from World War 1 which has meant that the children were able to recap much of their previous knowledge and apply it to this new topic. The children are very excited to learn about this war as it is linked to our current book and is bringing the learning to life.

This is going to be an action-packed term and we're looking forward to updating you on here weekly.

 

 

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend,

Miss Aldis and Miss Gow. 

 

Home Learning

 

Home learning and spellings will be set each week on a Thursday and will be due in the following Tuesday. 

 

Times Tables Rockstars! 

To keep practising the multiplication taught in class, and challenging yourself to keep the ones you already know fresh, don’t forget to log into your Times Tables Rockstars account. 

https://play.ttrockstars.com/

 

Rapid recall of multiplication is essential for success in maths and Times Tables Rockstars gives children self-confidence, recognition and motivation to improve.  Challenge yourself to beat your score, build your knowledge and watch your confidence sore, as you become a Rockstar!

Please ask your class teacher if you need replacement log in details.

 

 

Please work through the activities below, as we will be working on these skills in our lessons:
