P.E. Monday afternoon and Friday afternoon.
Monday afternoon and Friday afternoon (when not swimming). The children should come to school in there school uniform. They will change into their black shorts and white t-shirt. The jogging suit should not be worn to school.
Swimming - It is St. Margaret's turn to swim again when they return from the holidays on Friday 1st March. The children will swim until Friday 29th March. They do not go swimming the very last week of term. They need to bring with them a towel and swimming costume/trunks. If the children prefer to wear goggles or a swimming hat they can bring these too. We do walk to and from from the swimming pool so please ensure that the children wear appropriate coats.
R.E. - We will be learning about the importance of trusting in God and will reflect upon God’s message to Zechariah. We will be learning how Mary trusted in God and begin to recognise that we may need help to trust in God like Joseph.
Maths - Since returning from Christmas we have been learning about measuring and converting from cm to mm and cm to m. The children have been solving word problems using this knowledge. We then went on to learn about solving multiplication of 2 digit numbers multiplied by a 1 digit number. We have been trying this using lots of different methods including column multiplication, repeated addition and using tens and ones. This week we have begun to learn about dviding a 2 digit number by a 1 digit number.
Walk like an Egyptian - Topic and English
We have been researching what life was like for the Ancient Egyptians and have focused on the Pharaoh Tutankhamun. We have enjoyed a fabulous Ancient Egyptian day where we got to learn more about the mummification process and had the opportunity to try writing hierogyphs using ink.
English - we have been writing a description of, 'A day in the life of a Pharaoh.' We included speech, adverbs of time, prepositions, expanded noun phrases, conjunctions and even the present perfect tense!!!!
We are now going to move on to learning about the geography of Egypt.
Science - Forces and Magnets - We will compare how things move on different surfaces, learn about how magnetic forces can act at a distance, observe how magnets atttact and repel each other and some materilas. We will identify magnetic materials, we will group and compare materials based on whether they are attracted to a magnet.
Maths toolkit and Spelling homework are sent home on Friday to be returned by the following Thursday.
