Welcome back!

We hope you have enjoyed your half term. It has been lovely and sunny and we hope you managed to go for walks and play in the sunshine! Mrs Tait has spent time in the garden and gone on bike rides and also enjoyed eating lots of ice cream. Miss Syropoulo has been to Whitley Bay for some lovely beach walks and played some tennis.

Mrs Anderson has had a great week looking after Moley. He has really enjoyed playing in the garden in the sunshine and has had some great days out exploring the woods.  Take a look at what he has been getting up to! 

Remember to keep emailing us pictures of things you have been doing so we can put them in the gallery.

Maths:
 
In Maths this week we are learning about comparing length and height. Can you look at two objects and tell which one is shorter or longer? This is describing the length of an object. Can you look at two trees outside and see which one is taller and which is shorter? This is describing the height of the trees. 
 
There are some great Maths games/ activities on the Oxford Owl website:
 
Theme
This week we are thinking about the weather in different parts of the world. Look at the powerpoint all about hot and cold countries and then complete the activity 'Packing a suitcase'. You can either print out the suitcases and stick the clothes in, or draw your own suitcases and draw the objects you would pack. 
Science:
 
This term in Science we are learning about the seasonal change. What season are we in now and how can we tell this?
PSHE:
In this Summer term we will look at 'Citizenship' -you will find out about rules and why they are important at school, at home and in the community. You will begin to understand the word 'community' and know that you belong to a community. 
Lesson 1 asks you to think about 'responsibilities'. Look at the ppt first then have a go at the task. 
Music:
This week we would like you to explore a singing website that we use regularly in the classroom. Please click the link below to visit the SingUp website. On this site you will find lots of our favourite songs. You can also click on the song of the week link to learn a new song.
