We are coming to the end of term and so I am sure I can speak for all of us and say we are all extremely worn out and ready for a nice break. The children are finishing their Greek mythology writing unit in English which requires them to plan and write their own Greek myth completely independently. In maths, the children are doing a few lessons on money. They are working out change when buying objects and looking at how they can make different prices up using different combinations of coins. What would be really useful is if you can do some money problems with children at home using real coins. You could ask the children to sort the money out for you at the shop, ask them to work out the change if you bought something or even add prices onto some of their toys and ask which ones they could afford to buy if you only gave them a certain amount of money.
I will send the children home with half term homework this week. Please try to engage with the child when they complete this homework and urge them to be as creative and inventive as possible.
A big well done to all the children for their incredibly hard work this term. It has been a very Literacy and Maths focused term and all the children have made fantastic progress. They all deserve a good rest over the holidays.
Thank you very much for all of your support during the last two and a half terms and I have really enjoyed teaching Mercury Class. I know that they will all continue to be amazing and will really enjoy their last term of primary school. I will ensure that I stay in touch and I know the children will be really eager to meet Baby Stanley.
They now only have 3 school weeks left before the children will sit their SATs exams. As a result, they are now revising all of the key concepts learnt throughout Key Stage Two. The children are working incredibly hard and understand the importance of this time of year. Homework for the next few weeks will take the form of revision. As much time that can be given to this as possible will greatly help your child.
