Good morning! Well, this isn't the day that we anticipated and the children must be so disappointed. I've had a look and found some websites that they might enjoy. There are some printables, but if you are unable to do this, it may give you some ideas for an activity. Take care.
Please find below our newsletter for this half term which tells you what we will be covering until October half term.
In half term 2, w have focused on our addition and subtraction skills leading us to find the most efficient way of working these questions out which is using column method. Whilst doing this, we have had to make sure our arithmetic skills are up to speed as well as our number bond work. Even though lots of these skills are learnt in KS1, it's so important to keep recapping those early strategies. At the same time as addition and subtraction, we are working really hard on our times tables. We have been recapping work from previous year groups and then moving onto new work. The Year 3's are busy learning their 3,4 and 8 times table whilst the Year 4's are recapping all those before moving to 6's, 7's and 9's.
During Autumn 2, we have been looking at some new grammar objectives which have enabled us to write our reports on Henry VIII. We looked at the structure of a non chronological report and what we would need to include to make it successful. Key areas to focus on were the headings and sub titles, using the correct tense ( past for our report), use of technical language linked with our topic of The Tudors and using paragraphs to name but a few. We really enjoyed doing the research on the Tudors and found all the facts and stories behind them really interesting. We are now preparing for our next piece of work which will be a narrative, again based on Henry VIII where we can practise more of grammar skills including possessive apostrophies and inverted commas.
During Autumn 2, we had our Anti Bullying week. This is always an important time in school as we raise the awareness of the different types of bullying in our society and talk to the children about how to spot bullying with the key signs and what their actions need to be to prevent it happening. Our theme this year was 'United Against Bullying' which reminded us that nobody is alone and that we should stand together and help each other out if any of us are in need. It was a good chance for St Bernadette's to talk about the different types of bullying that Christ suffered when he was alive think about why people did certain things to him. It gave us a chance to learn from him in how he dealt with these acts of bullying and how we could stop them happening in the first place.
