Spring 1-Welcome to 5G
This half term our topic is Space! The children have done some superb research so far and have really impressed me with how much information they have retained.
Our 'Space Fest Exhibition' will be Friday 14th February (the day after the much anticipated sleepover!) Please do continue encouraging your children to bring in anything they make at home related to our topic- we love sharing them in class and will make sure everything is displayed in the exhibition. I have been blown away by some of the things the children have brought in so far!
Please feel free to come in for a chat at any time, my door is always open :)!
Our focus so far this half term in Science has been understanding the Earth, Moon and Suns movement in Space. The children took home a Moon diary at the start of the term which they are filling in each night to track the Lunar cycle and in class we have had lots of in-depth discussions around our research so far into Space. The children made some models to illustrate how the Earth and Moon orbit in Space and the results were great.
Every Friday afternoon this half term the children will have an hours session with a specialist cricket coach. The children have really impressed me the last 2 weeks- not only with their excellent behaviour- but with their fantastic skills!
We have been concentrating on our bowling skills and also introduced some batting last week. I was so impressed with some of our batters and bowlers!!! Future England squad potential!!
At Torrisholme, we are continuously striving to develop ways to encourage our children to read for pleasure. We have created a ‘HOT BOOKS’ list of 30 up-to-date, age-appropriate texts, compiled from a range of suggested reading lists. This is not an exhaustive list of fabulous year group appropriate books but is more a fun challenge list for our children to explore texts written in a wide range of styles by a selection of current and popular children’s authors.
How many can your child read?
On your marks…
