Hello Snowy Owls,
Welcome back to a brand-new summer term!
I hope you have all had amazing half terms, enjoying the sun and having fun with those in your homes. I have been enjoying lots of walks, the odd picnic in the garden and reading whilst playing fetch with Ash.
This term we are starting a new and very exciting topic…ACTIVE EARTH!
This topic is all about exploring volcanoes and in science we will be delving into the world of rocks. I hope you have lots of fun and adventures using the activities in your new topic grid to learn about Hinduism, volcanoes, rocks, being creative and yourselves.
For Maths and English I have continued creating a ‘must, could and should’ set of activities for each week. The ‘must’ activities are in a black box and these should be completed each week as they will have lots of new and interesting learning for you to enjoy. The ‘should’ activities are in blue boxes and these are ones you should try if you are able to. The ‘could’ activities are in pink boxes and these are extra exciting challenges! Most weeks you can choose which order you would like to complete the ‘must’ activities in, so you can have a go at the task you feel like trying each day. This is the same for the blue and pink boxes too, but don’t forget to complete all of the ‘must’ activities first.
I can not wait to see all of the fantastic learning you are going to achieve and it would be brilliant if you could keep on sharing all your super hard work on our school blog page!
Do not forget to keep challenging yourselves with TT Rockstars, spellings and daily reading too.
Let’s see what amazing learning we can achieve this term!
You are all super stars!
Stay safe at home. Remember, there is always someone to listen if you do not feel safe. Follow this link to the Childline website:

Welcome to Snowy Owls class page!
For the second half of this spring term we are moving from rainforests to the Vikings.
We will be exploring some very exciting Viking raids and invasions as well as using our map knowledge to see where they settled and visited.
In English we will be writing instructions for 'How to catch a dragon' and we will be looking at the story of Beowulf. The children will discover how to write their own playscripts and how to create some Viking poetry.
In maths we are going to learn how to use the expanded column method to add 2-3 digit numbers together. Then we will be brushing up on our knowledge of telling the time and recapping how to subtract using a number line.
This short term Snowy Owls have PE with Mr Sykes on a Friday morning.
Please make sure your child has a PE kit in school during the week, as sometimes we may have PE lessons on other days too.
The children will soon be bringing home a list of spellings for the week and a spelling menu. They choose from the menu which way they would like to practise their spellings for that week. Spellings will be given out on Friday for a spelling test on the following Friday. See below for spellings for the 13th March up to week commencing 20th April.
reading diary to keep track of home and class reading, this and their reading books will need to be brought into school every day. In class, the children will be taking part in guided reading where they will have the chance to read a book as a group, have a go at comprehension questions and read for pleasure in our class's reading nook.
