In science we have been learning about the 3 main types of teeth we have: incisors, canines and molars. We learnt about there different uses and preformed a simple test to see which teeth we use for different foods. 


Enrichment week

During the afternoons this week we will be taking part in a range of exciting activities to extend learning and give new opportunities.


On Friday, 23rd September the children will be taking part in Forest School activities. Please send them into school dressed in clothes that you don't mind them getting dirty! The clothing should include long sleeves and (long) trousers and a pair of old shoes or wellington boots. They should also bring in a pair of trainers or school shoes to change into once their activities have finished.

Useful Reminder

Expectations of homework include:

Reading –As part of the RALF initiative, children should read EVERY day. Please sign the sheet in the back of their homework books to show they have done so.

Maths – Mathletics practise will form the only maths homework, however multiplication tables practise is vital! Please also record any maths work your child does on the sheet in the back of their homework books. By the end of this academic year the children are expected to know their tables up to 12 x 12 with a 5 second recall. We will practise at school, but we ask that you also take as much time as you can to go through them at home. There are lots of websites where the children can play games but nothing beats chanting them to get them to stick in their heads! We will put links to some multiplication games on Oak page on the school website. The order in which we learn the X tables is: 2x, 5x, 10x then 3x, 4x, 8x then 6x, 7x, 9x, 11x, 12x.

Spellings – As mentioned above, children will have some spellings that have be sent home which will then be tested in school each week.

Weekly homework – This will be set at the beginning of each term. We hope that they are fun and interesting activities that will develop them as learners. Out on a Friday, in on a Wednesday. There will be a different activity for each week and castle points will be awarded generously.
