Literacy - We began the new school year by analysing and comparing acrostic poems! The children have all written their own, filled with exciting adjectives, about their chosen Stone Age animal - these are fantastic! The Stig has inspired some short burst descriptive writing, which links to our Stone Age topic. Stone Age Boy has helped us to investigate tools used in writing to create suspense.

Maths - We will continue to follow the Maths No Problem programme. You will be able to support your child with their mathematical progression through Mathletics, where we will be setting weekly homework.

Reading - Our focal texts this term are The Adventures of Mr Toad, The Magic Paintbrush and Flat Stanley. We are developing our VIPERS skills and have had some fun hot seating the main characters.

PE - We have been exploring our co-ordination and static balance skills through our new P.E scheme Jasmin - Real P.E. Our focus has been on developing our personal skills including perseverance, challenging ourselves and being able to reflect on our personal progression. These skills have transferred into our Football practise which has been great!

Please feel free to have a go at Real P.E at home! https://jasmineactive.com/news/home-learning-resources
