Norbreck Primary Academy Whatever We Do,
We Do It Well

Welcome to Term 2. The Topic is 'Frozen Planet'. In this topic, we shall be studying what makes a desert and looking in depth at the frozen landscapes at the opposite poles of the earth.


Some key dates:


Tuesday - swimming - for those who have been given letters and told that they are going.

Wednesday - spellings

Thurday - Homework in books go home

Friday - PE day. (Please have in school indoor kit now.)


Our class text for English is 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'. This book is readily available in libraries or you ma well have a copy at home on your bookshelf. Please do bring it in and read along with me. It makes it far more fun. The whole class guided reading text is 'Adolphus Tips' by Michael Morpurgo. Each child has a copy to read along in class. 


My Maths group focuses for Term 2 are:

Mastery of as many times tables as possible - especially 3,4,8 and 6's. (Yes that may look like a strange order but there are reasons. (double 4's to find 8's and double 3's to find 6's).

Fraction of whole numbers and adding fractions.

Metric measures - knowing 10mm = 1cm, 100cm = 1m 100m = 1km.  1000ml = 1 litre. 500 ml =1/2 litre and so on.

Application of taught methods from Term 1.


Please do keep working on the Mymaths homework that has been set and playing the maths games on the websites that I have provided links for.
