R.E. and Art

During our last week in school we will continue to focus on the events of the first Holy Week. The children will be editing their recounts of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. They will be looking at some key Stations of the Cross, and reproducing artwork in that style.  

Stations of the Cross: We will share some of the Stations of the Cross with all the children in school at the end of the school day on Monday and Tuesday. 

English, Art, Geography and PSE

In relation to our Easter theme, the whole school has planned Thursday as an RE day when we will focus on the events of Holy Week through the outdoor environment, the arts and drama.  It should be a very exciting day and hopefully the weather will enable us to carry out all activities planned! The activities will help us to deepen and enrich the children’s understanding of the Easter story and in particular its message of great hope for us all.

Home learning: The children have a comprehension activity to complete. Please remind them to read each question carefully, especially the first word. When they write their answers in sentences, they need to check that they begin with a capital letter, end with a full stop, and that they make sense. They should underline the part of the text where they find the answer.  

Mathematics

We will be looking at telling the time on a clock with hour and minute hands (analogue clock), recapping o’clock and half-past, and working on quarter-past and quarter-to. If your child is confident with these times, we will look at reading time in 5 minute intervals (e.g. 25 past 3, or 20 to 7). 

Home learning: Pages 64 to 65. This will consolidate the children’s understanding of fractions, and recap their knowledge of counting in 5s, comparing numbers using < > or =, and adding three numbers.
