Dear Parents,

We hope you had a good break. We have be focusing on measuring in Maths this week (ml, l, kg, g, m,cm and ˚C) and telling the time ( the children should know o’clock, half past ¼ to and past and begin to tell the time to 5 minutes). We had lots of fun using the outdoor area measuring length, mass and capacity. The children wrote a recount of their Easter Holidays and used spelling rules for writing in the past tense. We have enjoyed reading the story ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’.

The words for the week are: friend, push, pull, steak, break, every, says, sandwich, eat, ate

Next week we will be focusing on retelling the story of the Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch. In Maths we will be focusing on working out addition, subtraction, multiplication and division number sentences making sure we do all our working out (maybe ask your child to show you how they work these out!)

Next Friday the PTA will be selling ice creams after school.

Just to confirm, the trip to Bexhill is on Thursday 4th May. Please let us know if you are available to help.

 

The children can wear their own suitable clothes (we will be on the beach!) Please check the forecast and send them dressed and prepared for the weather. (Shoulders must be covered). And suitable footwear that can get wet and has a good grip.   

 

The children will need a back pack (not hand held bag) as they will carry everything themselves and will need their hands free for the activities.

 

Don't forget to check the letter that came home on Wednesday and please return the slips and money to us ASAP.

 

If you have any report comments to return please could we have these too.

 

If you would like to look after the Guinea Pigs for a weekend this term please let us know via the contact book.

We hope you have a lovely weekend

The Sycamore Team
