Week Beginning 5 October 2015

ECA/BISCAP - Please inform the class teacher via a note in your child’s Communication Book if your child’s arrangements change for BISCAP, ECA or end of the day pick up. As changes involve a disruption to normal routines this helps us support you in getting your child home safely.


  • Lunch - If your child has been registered and leaves school after 9.30 Sleto will still charge for lunch unless they know in advance. Please email if you know your child will not be in school for lunch by 9.30 so that you are not charged.
  • Security - Our new security system is still at the trial stage.  Adults only should use the glass gates to enter and exit the school; children should use the metal gates to the side.  If you are concerned that your child is young and you want to be with them then please accompany them through the metal gates. Thank you for your support.
  • The optional homework task sent on Wednesday 23 September should be handed in on Monday 12 October. Normal homework will resume on Wednesday 14 October.
  • Please can you provide your child with a light rain jacket on days where rain is forecast. To minimise the amount of time children are inside the classroom,  the children will go outside for playtimes during light rain.
  • As part of our Themed Learning unit the children will be making models of villages. Please send in any old newspapers you have so the children can complete their papier mache models.
  • Uniform Reminder - Please ensure that your child has the correct school uniform. In particular please ensure your child is wearing black shoes. Girls should wear plain white socks and boys should wear black or grey socks. You can review the school’s uniform policy at


In Literacy the children will build on their work focusing on stories from different cultures which started before the holiday and will continue over the next two weeks at school. This unit of work is aimed at developing and improving their writing skills by modelling their work on the stories that they have read. The children will spend time looking at how to use, and punctuate, speech effectively in their work. Through shared writing, the children will also begin to develop character descriptions.


In Maths, we will be focusing on prime numbers and number properties. The children will be identifying prime numbers and work on a ‘number properties’ investigation. We will also be introducing an App, ‘Sumdog,’ on our return to school. Please make sure the app has been downloaded.

THEMED LEARNING ‘Building a Village’

During this short week, the children will be continuing to construct their village models. They will be using the plans that they drew in class to help them upscale their models. The children will be adding the physical features such as land, mountains, water and resources. Later in the unit the children will add the human features. The children will work in teams and will be focusing on how to work collaborately by sharing ideas, sharing responsibilities and listening to the suggestions of others.


Our focus this week in PHSCE will be looking after our possessions and how to make the correct choices when on the internet.


Literacy –Speech marks, adjectives, adverbs, similes, metaphor, character, description, structure, traditional

Maths – Multiplication, factors, multiples, prime numbers

Themed learning – human features, physical features, scale, plan, collaboration
