Term 2 - Mighty Metals

You’re an engineer, a scientist, a maker of men (iron men, of course.)

Explore the scientific world of forces and magnetism, metals and materials… Expand your mind as you test and trail, build and move.

Which force is at play as you slide down a slide or swing on a swing?

Then, meet Hogarth the Iron Man’s companion. The Iron Man wants a friend… Can you build him one? You must make him strong, sturdy and ready to rumble!

If you were a metal, which one would you be? Gold, a shimmering. Precious and costly mineral? Or steel, that strong and useful alloy? Maybe you’re iron, malleable and easy to shape, but ready to rust!

Maybe you’re not a metal at all – but a force to be reckoned with!

What are our homework expectations?

 

As well as our topic based homework we expect children to complete weekly My Maths homework to consolidate class maths. In addition, children can complete Times Table Rock Star Challenges.

 

Reading continues to remain a priority and we ask that your child has the opportunity to read and / or share books with you on a daily basis.  The children are now using Accelerated Reader in school and will be asked to take a quiz on each book when they have finished it.

 

We will be holding a Spelling Bee in class 3 at the end of term 2.  We will be looking at different spelling rules and practising different spellings for each rule.

Here are some games you can play to help you learn your spellings.

How do we reward the children’s behaviour?

In Class 3 we remember to follow the 5 bees;

 

 

Be respectful

Be kind and gentle

Be careful

Be responsible

Be the best you can be

 

In PSHE we will been thinking about feelings and emotions and how these impact on our behaviour. We will be using The Zones of Regulation to describe and discuss our emotions. Please follow the links for more information.
