Suffolk Five-Week Beginning Monday 15th March 2024

Welcome back to Term Five, we hope you all had a relaxing break.

Suffolk are excited to be participating in Forest School again. The children were lucky with the weather today and they have started a new activity; story circle time at the end of the session. This week one class member performed their own story to the class.

The children have so much to look forward to this term and the excitement is building as the year group PGL trip approaches. Sports day practice has already begun with Mr Levett on Mondays each week. Please make sure P.E kits come back into school each Monday morning. 

The new class text is The Adventures of Odysseus, which links to our history topic, Groundbreaking Greeks. Fortunately, there are a few experts amongst the class, who have helped to add to the research, for the posters we are about to make. So far, the children have begun to learn about the Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Greece.

In Maths, we are about to start a new topic on shape having finished learning about statistics. 

The new Science topic is about materials and their properties and so far we have been defining the properties of materials.

Learning This Week

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. We have A TT Rock Star of the week. Look out to see who the first one is!

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.

 

The link below will take you to the spelling scheme we are working from in school.

Reading

All children have been given a new AR bookmark and know their AR bands.  They have selected a book to read at home and school.  Please ensure you hear your child read regularly and record on Boom Reader. Log in reminders have been sent home. 

 

Please note: pupil login details have changed slightly due to an upgrade that has taken place on the Accelerated Reader platform. Pupil login details (user name and password) should now be enter in all lower case (no capital letters at all). These login details are used each time your child quizzes a school reading book which carries an accelerated reading quiz code.

Music Knowledge Organiser

Below is the music knowledge organiser for this term's music topic. To help with their in-class learning, please can the children read over this each week.
