Through God’s love we learn together, grow together and achieve together.

Dear Parents / Carers, 

Thank you for all the fantastic work we saw yesterday. It’s great to see the children making such a good start to the half-term.  

This week, the children are learning about:  

  • Dividing and halving numbers and multiplication using column method 

  • Recreating the opening of a story using powerful vocabulary and revising speech 

  • Northern Italy and other famous Italian cities 

  • Lent and St. Joseph 

  • Life cycles 

Our Guided Reading poem this week is ‘Snaggers Pond’ by Wes Magee. Children will also have Handwriting, PSHE, PE, Art, Music and Wellbeing activities. 

We’d also like to remind parents that Abacus activities are still being set for your child each week. The activities set directly support the learning the children are doing in Maths each week so are great for reinforcing their knowledge understanding. Children receive a house point for each Abacus activity they complete.  

Here are the activities for today:
