Our topic this half term is ....
UNDER THE SEA
We will be learning about what is under the sea, we will research what actually lives there as well as inventing our own sea creature from research that we will do. This is why we have arranged to go on a school trip to the Sea Life Centre in Birmingham as we know this will enhance our learning further.
These are the texts we will be using this half term in our English, Topic, Art and Science lessons.

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?
