WELCOME to PINE class page

Our topic this half term is called Are You The Next BIG inventor?  At the end of the topic, your child will have made a toy and will be able to explain the features they have chosen and why they have  designed it in that particular way. It will also include electricity as we will be looking at electric circuits and how they are designed.

In English we will be looking at a variety of fiction and non- fiction texts and the children will be given plenty of opportunities to become literacy detectives- finding key features of grammar and punctuation .This half term we will be looking in particular at instructional writing and explanations punctuation. 

Please encourage your child to read each evening and spend a little time reading to you, please record this in their reading diaries. Don't forget to complete the Book Blog questions. 

In maths will be focusing on place value, measures, statisitcs ,fractions nd calculations.. It is essential that your child knows their times tables x 12 so they can answer questions swiftly and accurately. TT Rockstars activities either at home or during lunch club provided in school wil help with that. They will have received their passwords again just in case they have forgotten them.

PE - is on a Wednesday and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has their PE kit on those days

Spellings will be given out every Wednesday and will be tested the following Wednesday- the children will learn strategies within class to help them apply their spellings

If you have any questions, concerns or queries please feel free to contact the school and ask to speak to me or catch me at the start or end of the day.
