It is REALLY important for children to practice their 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables and learn them off -by-heart, including the division facts.
This half term in Science the children will be learning about the basic needs a human or animal needs to survive. The children will also understand why it is essential that humans exercise, eat the right amounts of different types of food, and the necessity for hygiene.

In our R.E unit ‘Who is a Christian and what do they believe?' The children will be learning about what Christians believe about God, stories about Jesus and stories Jesus told.
A reminder that a voluntary contribution of £1.00 per week, for school fund would be really appreciated. (£7 this half term) This can be paid via parent pay.
