Daily Messages from your teacher during school closure:
Well well well… yesterday was fun! I hope you all managed to fly your paper aeroplanes! I did REALLY well as you can see from the attached video… (Hope that makes you smile!)
Thank you to those who got in touch with their distances! The results are in……
1st – Alex 10m 2nd – Bansi 9.7m (32ft) 3rd – Shravya 6.7m 4th – William 5.3m 5th – Yacine 2.8m 6th – Miss Hacking 1.5m
WELL DONE ALEX!!!! I think throwing the plane from a height was a great idea! – Everyone else, feel free to try and beat his record, it’s not too late! William – I particularly liked the design of your plane! (Check out the website to see videos and pictures of all the attempts!)
Today’s challenge is a physical one! I want you to channel your inner Joe Wicks and create your own PE lesson today! You could – design an obstacle course, create a fitness circuit, lead a game of your choice etc.
As always, I’d love to see as many pictures as possible! So email them to me
Hope you are all having a nice week so far.

This term, our topic is PHARAOHS!
In Literacy, we will continue to develop our writing in a number of ways. We will also be exploring the different text types – biographies, newspaper reports, recounts and dialogue. The children will be continuing to focus on their spelling and punctuation skills in this half term.
In Maths, we will be learning and revisiting regularly our mental fluency as well as exploring 3D and 2D shapes (including reflection, translation and angles.)
In Science, we will continue to explore "Changing Materials" and in Topic, we will be studying Ancient Egypt in detail!
