Welcome to Maple
Our topic this term is Horror. We will be exploring the genre of suspense and writing our very own spooky story based on the book Night of the Gargoyles by Eve Bunting. To bring this to life, we will be visiting Lincoln Cathedral ( 09/10/18). In Science we are looking at the “gory “ parts of our body eg –the digestive system and intestine. The use of Virtual Reality will enhance the children’s first- hand experiences. Through the DARE project the children will investigate drug awareness and the effects these have on the body. Where possible, all other curriculum areas will be linked to the topic.
Homework is given out every Friday and handed in on Wednesdays. There is weekly mathletics homework, reading tasks and spellings. Sometimes topic tasks will be sent home too with a slightly longer time to complete. It is also expected that we read regularly and sign our diaries to show this.
Every child in school has access to the 'Mathletics' website. This is a safe and secure website which helps every child to raise their achievement in mathematics. It has lots of fun activities which will motivate you and encourage you to enjoy maths.
