Please read with your family.

We hope that you had a wonderful holiday and are ready for another exciting term of learning.


In Maths, you will begin the term by revisiting addition and subtraction. You will then turn your attention to multiplication and division. In the second half of the term, the focus will turn to proportions and ratios. You will also be learning about measurement. Please remember to keep practicing your basic facts at home this term.    


Our Oral Language programme will continue this term. Each class tends to run their oral language program a little differently. Oral language helps to build students confidence in public speaking and is also a great opportunity for students to share new learning on a range of topics. Your teacher will let you know exactly what you need to do.
