I hope everyone had a happy, healthy and safe winter break. We are so excited to be back in Birch Class and get back to learning!
In English, we have been planning and writing our first drafts of our poems in the style of Jackie Morris' "I Am Cat". I can't wait to see the final porducts next week! We are also finishing off the last few lessons of our fractions topic form before the break. The children are doing so well!
Though we have not officially started our history and science topics this week, I am very excited to get looking into the Benin Kingdom and magnetism. We will also start our topic about Jesus as the Messiah in RE. It's going to be a fabulous half term.
We did not start spellings this week but next week, we will start looking with apostrophes next week including conytractions (cannot -> can't, will not -> won't, etc.) and possessive apostophes. Please also remember to record your children's reading in their reading journals. They should be reading 20 minutes every day, either a book from home or school. I check them on Mondays and Fridays so please also remind your children to bring them in!
