Hello everyone and welcome to Jack’s Class.
I hope you all had a lovely summer!
We have started this term’s learning journey and have already been very busy across the curriculum. The theme for this term is ‘Healthy Body, Healthy Mind’ and we have focused on eating healthy foods and keeping ourselves fit, both physically and mentally.
In English we are delving into the grim tales created by ‘The Brothers Grimm’, as we compare them to modern day traditional tales.
In Maths this term we are focussing on: Number and Place Value, Addition and Subtraction and finally, length mass and weight
In Geography we have been looking at the features of mountains, focussing on The Rocky Mountains in North America.
In Art we have started work on some wonderful self-portraits and we have also been using a variety of devices to produce some delightful digital art.
In science we will learn about five of the groups that scientists use to classify animals: mammals, fish, birds, reptiles and amphibians. We will also learn to identify the group an animal belongs to by its features and will classify animals according to their group.
It would be great if you could help talk about and promote ‘Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds’ at home. Here are some things you could talk about:
– Swapping junk food for healthy food.
– Talking about how you feel.
– The importance of exercise.
