Carpe Diem - Seize the Day
Our topic this term is Buried Under The Sand!
This term the children will be learning about the Ancient Egyptians. We will be visiting the World Museum in Liverpool, where the children will have the opportunity to view the Ancient Egyptian exhibition and take part in Egyptian activities.
At the bottom of the page you can find lots of websites for your information. e.g relating to English, Maths and The Ancient Egyptians, including lots of fun activities and games for you to play with your child.
Parental Permissions: If you would like your child to walk home from school independently, please leave a note in your child's Homelink book so that all adults dismissing children at the end of the day are aware.
Book change: Reading books will be changed during group read sessions, so please bring your books in daily.
Big Maths CLIC and Learn It Tests: Thursday. The children will bring home a practice CLIC and Learn It sheet with their homework on a Friday.
Below is a list of websites that may be useful when practicing times tables and place value.
When practicing times tables, as well as the websites above, you could play games, sing songs, make up rhymes, or use flash cards. Remember that children should be able to recall facts out of order without working up from 1 x something.
We are currently learning about place value and number sequencing in class. Below is a link to the place value and number sequencing games that the children have been playing in class - it may be useful to play these games at home to increase your child's confidence with value and support their learning in class.
There key to learning times tables is regular practice in short bursts. For example on the way home or when going up to bed.
