Welcome to Monkeys
We work hard, try our best, and have fun.
Mrs Murfitt is the class teacher and Mr Dobb is our teaching assistant.
We are all looking forward to a really exciting SummerTerm.
During this term, we will attempt to answer the question
Where in the world is South America?
We will learn all about the continent of South America, where it is, what the land is like and all about chocolate.
Maths: In maths, we will be spending a lot of time studying fractions and decimals but we are also learning about statistics, shape and measures. We always include lots of mastery, problem solving and reasoning activities in our lessons. We will also continue to work on our mental maths skills and times table knowledge.
Science: Our science topic for this term is ‘How does your garden grow?’ where we will learn all about plants, how they grow and what they need to survive.
ICT: In computing, we will be looking at Esafety, and learning how to use the internet safely. This includes using search engines correctly and email.
Art/DT: Our art and DT work for the first half term will be learning about the artist Georgia O’Keefe. For the second half term, we will be learning about chocolate, and making and designing our own!
PSHE: Circle Time!
Geography: This geography topic is all about the continent South America. We will learn where it is, the countries and capital cities as well as the physical and human geography. During the second half term, we will focus more on the people and trade within South America.
History: We will complete a local history project about coal mining.
PE: Squash and dance
RE: Our Religious Education work will see us looking at Beliefs and Questions.
Visit: We are visiting Cadbury’s World on 6th June as part of our geography and design & technology work.
Remember to read at home as much as you can, and get your diary signed. Each time you get your diary signed you will earn star stamps! You can read any book, not just your school reading book!
Every Friday the children will have two pieces of homework to complete. They are expected to complete their homework for the following Friday. Please do your best to support and encourage your child with their schoolwork.
Spellings are given out every week and we will have our quiz on Friday’s.
If you would like to have a chat or pass on any information please feel free to come into class, I will be more than happy to see you. For a lengthier chat please arrange an after school appointment.
This term is going to be very busy but we are looking forward to having lots of fun as well
MrsMurfitt and Mr Dobb
Homework and spellings are given out on a Friday. The children also need to read at home and they are given a star stamp for each time they read. If you have any concerns or questions to ask please come to see us and we will try to help.
