Year 5 had a fantastic day in London visiting the Houses of Parliament and the National Portrait Gallery. We had an election and elected a new Prime Minister.
Pankhurst class had an amazing time at Mary Arden's Farm - learning all about life in Tudor Times. We learnt building techniques (wattle and daub) , how to make bread and butter, how to knit and using herbs as medicines. We then learnt a Tudor dance and saw how birds were used for hunting.

Year 3 Updates
Year 3 are given weekly homework that is set on a Thursday and handed back in for marking on Tuesday. This will be linked to the Year 3 curriculum. The children are also given weekly spellings to learn, which are tested on a Monday. Children are expected to read every day and we ask that an adult signs and makes a comment in their reading diary. This should be handed in every day.
How you can help
Please continue to support your child by encouraging them to read widely and frequently. They should also be discussing their reading with an adult on a regular basis. You could use the questions in their reading diary for ideas. Ensuring that your child is regularly practicing their multiplication tables is also incredibly beneficial for them. There are lots of ways that these facts can be practised; chanting, singing, games, apps, web sites or simply writing them out.
