Willow Class update - Spring 1
Dear Parents and Carers
The children have worked really hard as always and we have continued the journey from the Stone Age through to the Bronze Age. We have considered how modern machinery, tools, factories and agriculture have changed. We have reflected on these in modern times with the resulting impact on our carbon footprint and what things we can each do to have our own impact on this, however small.
This week we have revised our addition and subtraction of three-digit numbers with renaming as well as multiplication with renaming. The children have been introduced to division and will revisit this. It is an ideal time to learn the 3 and 4 times tables as well as to revise the two, four and ten times tables. Ensuring that the children know their number bonds will also benefit them tremendously.

Our class book this half term was the Iron Man and we have created Wanted Posters and written diary pages, as well as delving more deeply into each chapter with questions, searching for answers and expanding our vocabulary.
There are some stunning Stone Henge inspired art works, developing a range of techniques including colour washes, sketches and silhouettes.
Next half term launches our ‘Once Upon a Bicycle’ theme, with an exciting showcase, a local history study and letter writing. Our class book will be the Jolly Postman, opening up a wealth of opportunities for enriching vocabulary, drama and story telling.
In PE the children are developing their physical literacy and have demonstrated fantastic emerging attacking and defending skills within small team games. They are enjoying French, too and are learning about items we would put into a school bag!
We wish you a safe and restful half term.
