Welcome back from the Christmas holidays.  This term our theme is ‘Tomorrow’s World’.  We have already started to learn about space exploration facts in our literacy with the aim of writing a non-fiction text in our first Big Write.  This will be followed up with some science fiction stories.  We are continuing with daily reading and spelling activities.  Those children who have supplemented their spelling practice with practice at home have been very successful when tested and are now incorporating these spellings into their writing.  In PE, we will doing hockey and dance, and hopefully will post some videos of our dance routines.  Science we will be investigating light and dark and forces.  Our artwork has already started with making of rockets and planets. RE will look at Faith founders and in Geography the environment and how we should care for it.  Finally we will continue with our programming on purple mash and learn how to communicate via email.  All the children have their own logins and are welcome to use any of the programs on purple mash which are both safe to use and educational, all you need is internet access.  There are plenty of stories to read on serial mash using the same login, please contact Mr Watson if you don’t have you child’s login details.  It promises to be an exciting term, so get ready for blast off!
