16th - 20th May 2022
Dear Parents / Carers
Here is an outline the work we will be covering next week.
Our Celebration Assembly
Our Award for Living in St. Mary’s Way goes to Papa in St. Francis and Joaquin in St. Martin.
Our Stars of the Week are Rosemary and Williams in St. Martin, and David in St. Francis.
RE: The children have been thinking about the great feast of Pentecost this week, when the Holy Spirit came to the Apostles. What special gifts would your family like to thank God for? Maybe you are all good singers, or perhaps someone is especially good at reading, or art, or building models....
English: One word from last week’s homework caused a little confusion: the contracted form of will not is won’t.
This week the children have a comprehension.
Spellings: The plural ‘es’ which is added when words end with ch, sh, s, x or z, as in foxes.
Maths: Missing number calculations.
Many children are still weak on their 2x, 5x and 10x tables, and linking the fact that counting in steps of 2 links to the 2x table, etc.
We will begin our new RE topic on ‘Rules’ and look at why rules are necessary at school, in the community and in the wider world for us all to live harmoniously together.
English and Topic: The Platinum Jubilee
Over the coming half-term, we will be learning about the 70 years of service given to this country by Queen Elizabeth II as she celebrates her Platinum Jubilee. We have been so busy working on our beautiful wall-hanging to celebrate the Jubilee that we will be learning about the Crown Jewels this coming week.
This coming week we will be working on missing number calculations and reasoning about number.
For example, Can 31 be in the 10x table? Why?
