I hope you all had a great weekend. This week's topic is all around the theme of sport and I hope you like the activities on the grid.
Please ask your parents to check their email as there is a message from which requires a response by Thursday.
Please keep sending me photos and videos of what you have been doing, it is a great way for all of us to see what each other is up to in the absence of being together. Don't forget to let me know when you send anything if you want it to go up on the class pages.
If you are unable to print anything out or if you need anything else, please let me know.
Hope you have a great week, stay safe and keep in touch.

I have finished reading the worst witch and I love it. It is an adventurous book and always has a happy ending. My favourite character in the book I have read is Maud, she is really sweet and kind. She doesn't ever question what Mildred is doing, she just supports her.

We will be studying a variety of topics in Maths!
World War 2
Our History topic and English work this half term is all about World War 2. We will be finding out how and why the war began as well as thinking about how the nation helped, especially if they were not on the front line.
We will use empathy to think about what it might have been like for a child to be evacuated.
We will be watching "Good night Mr Tom" to inspire our writing.
Our new guided reading book is
Scarper Jack and the Bloodstained Room
by Christopher Russell
'I heard a murder being planned.'
Scarper Jack is a chimney-sweep's boy and he's actually in a chimney when he hears two voices planning a murder. He knows where and when it's going to happen – but there's no way he can stop it.
With the help of two unexpected friends – a posh boy and a sewer rat of a girl – he sets out to solve the mystery and track down the murderer.
Only to find that it can be dangerous to know
too much . . .
What predictions can you make about the book from the cover and blurb?
In Science, we will be developing our understanding of electricity.
We will investigate the effect of changing different components within circuits and learn the symbols for these components.
