Ocean: Friend or Foe?
This half-term we will be learning about the oceans of the world. In Geography, we will learn about the 5 oceans and 7 continents, the poles and the equator. We will also learn about human & physical features, and compare two locations. In History, we will learn about Grace Darling. In English, we will be reading a variety of topic based texts and writing for a range of purposes. In Maths, our topics will be Addition & Subtraction, Geometry and Time. In PE we will practise & perform an ocean dance.
Book-bags should be brought into school every day: we encourage children to be as independent as possible and to remember their book-bag for themselves.
We hear children read in Guided Reading sessions, and individually at other times.
Children are encouraged to change their books regularly.
Our PE days are;
Burgundy Class: Monday (indoor) and Wednesday (outdoor)
Ruby Class: Monday (indoor) and Wednesday (outdoor)
On PE days please come to school wearing your Morley PE kit (see here for more details). A PE kit consists of: T-shirt, shorts, long-sleeved top and jogging bottoms, spare socks, trainers or plimsolls. Long hair must be tied back and no jewellery please.
Homework will be set on Wednesday via Google Classroom, to be submitted by the following Tuesday. Login details can be found in your child’s reading record. Homework will be acknowledged by the class teacher on Google Classroom.
Following a recent government announcement, the SATS will not be taking place this year.
