Week commencing: 12.12.22
With only one week to go until we break for the Christmas holidays, we'd like to thank all of our families for their support and to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.🎄 

To those celebrating Hanukkah from the 18th we wish you a Happy Hanukkah. ✡

English:
We are looking at Benjamin Zephaniah's poem 'Talking Turkeys and we will be writing a class version.🦃
Please continue to read as much as possible over the holidays, listening to stories is fun too! Why not try listening to audiobooks (these can also be borrowed from libraries!) or find stories to listen to online.
Here are two Christmas stories to get you started: The Memoirs of an Elf & Santa's New Sleigh (links on google classroom). 
Maths: 
We are looking back at the units covered so far: place value, addition/subtraction and multiplication/division and will be revising these in some festive themed maths tasks.🎅🏽 Please continue to do daily practise on TT Rockstars as fluency remains important. 
Topic: In science we continue to explore states of matter and will focus on observing the process of melting.  We will be looking at the melting points of different materials such as butter and chocolate. 🍫
Homework:
Please support the children with their weekly spelling homework by encouraging them to learn and practise their words each week.

Please see google classroom for homework and weekly spellings. 
5 minutes a day - TT rock stars.
