Our topic this term is...
We will be learning about Castles this term. We will be studying the purpose of a castle, who lived in them, how they were protected and who protected them. We will also be building our own castles near the end of term.
In English we will be non-chronological reports, eventually completing one on castles. We will be learning the parts of a report, how to take our own notes, and turn those notes into full sentences and paragraphs under subheadings.
In Science, we are learning about plants. We will plant our own sunflowers and observe their growth. We will be looking at different plants and trees around us, labeling the parts of plants, and learning about their life cycles.

Please note that PE days can change, so your child needs to have a PE kit in school every day. This should include indoor kit (T-shirt, shorts, pumps) and outdoor kit (Tracksuit and trainers).
Please remember to read lots at home and record in your diary. Please read other things besides your school reading book- the more the better- for example, other story and non fiction books, poems, magazines, signs, even ingredients on packets!
Please remember also to practise your times tables- focus on the 2X 5X and 10X tables in Derwent Class.
Remember:- Bronze means you can say the whole table in order- eg "one times two is two, two times two is four....." fluently.
Silver means you can say the answer to any sum from the times table eg "what's 4 x 5? What's 8 X 5 ?
Gold means you can say the reverse division fact- eg in five times table, what's 20 divided by 5? how many fives in 15?
In ten times table, what's 50 divided by 10?
