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 Spring Term.
During this term, we will attempt to answer the question
‘What did the Romans do for us?’
Our English work will be based around our history topic all about the Romans. We will be studying a range of genres including instructions, Newspaper reports and non-chronological reports. Our first unit of work will be looking at myths and legends. We will also be including lots of Rainbow Grammar work and working really hard on our handwriting.
In guided reading, we will be reading Romans on the Rampage by Jeremy Strong.
Our class book will be Skyhawk by Gill Lewis.
In maths, we will be spending a lot of time studying multiplication and division but we are also learning about length & perimeter. 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.
Our science topic for this term is ‘Can you see me?’ where we will learn all about light and dark, shadows, how we see and mirrors.
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.
