Key Skills Over Half Term

Posted by jslizys on October 20, 2017 in Uncategorized |

Friday 20th October 2017

Please remember that reading and spelling practice must happen every week and that ‘little and often’ will help these facts go into your long term memory. Key skills must be handed in every Wednesday. Dojos will be awarded every week for completed key skills.

  1. Read every day and record in your reading diaries.
  2. Practice your 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables over the half term and record them in your Key Skills books.
  3. Over the holidays, you need to revisit and practice all of the spellings we have learnt in your Key Skills books. Please refer to the handout from TLC’s for a variety of learning styles.
  4. On your classes blogs (http://simondesenlisblogs.org/) leave a comment on your favourite fact you learnt from our Invaders and Settlers topic we have been learning about.

Thanks to all parents who helped us create our Roman shields for our key skills a few weeks ago. Here we are testing them out in the ‘Testudo’ (tortoise) formation which the Romans used in battle!


Transfer Week

It’s transfer week and we have had a lovely week working in our new year 3 class! We have been completing lots of maths investigations, powder paint artwork and writing a story so far. Today, a special visitor came to meet us and officially open the new year 3 classroom – it was Christian Day from the Saints!


Science Week!

We have had a week of science this week after we received a letter from a gardener asking for help with a plants investigation. After working in groups and doing some research into what plants need to survive, we have conducted a formal experiment where we grow sunflower seeds under different conditions. We have places sunflowers in the cupboard, freezer, windowsill and by the pond!
