Healthy Me! 

This term our topic is Healthy Me! In science this term we will be focusing on being healthy and why it is important to eat healthy food and exercise. This will include look at the human body, functions of the skeleton, how our muscles work, investigating our teeth and the digestive system and many other areas on keeping healthy and what our body needs!

This terms homework is to practice spellings, times tables and reading, including comprehension. Reading books will be available to change on a Monday and Thursday. 

There will also be a variety of different projects based around our topic which the children can choose to get involved in if they wish too. These projects can be handed in once they are completed as some projects may take longer than others to complete.

Healthy Me Projects!

The read, write inc spellings are tested every Tuesday morning starting from the 10th of October. Rainbow spellings are tested on a Thursday. If they get all of the same colour correct they move up a colour. Some of the rainbow spellings are in the link, but not all of them as I will put more up as the children go up colours. I have also sent home the list of rainbow spellings for the children to keep at home.

We have started to look at the features of newspapers and what makes a good article.

Next week, we are going to write our own newspaper articles based on the crime scene the Famous 5 created, which the children discovered this Tuesday morning.    


We will be continuing with spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG) work linked to GIMME 3. This includes punctuation, conjunctions and adverbials. Children are encouraged to think about these elements in each piece of writing they do across the curriculum.



We have completed the number and place value and addition and subtraction unit. 

We are now working on exploring money.

Throughout this topic we will be adding amounts of money using p and £ as well as using our subtraction skills to work out change. The method we will be focusing on is column addition and subtraction, which will involve carrying over numbers when adding and exchanging for subtracting. So far the children have been adding amounts of money together using column addition and have begun to work out how much change they would receive by using column subtraction. 

I have provided a copy of key concepts and success criteria for the unit.
