Green Lizards – Miss Whitehead

Here is our class page telling you all of the lovely things we get up to in the Green Lizards!

This half term, we are focussing on fractions in maths. We have already learned how to find equivalent fractions and fractions of amounts but we will be moving onto word problems and problem solving activities to really embed our learning.

In literacy, we are focussing on a wonderfully illustrated book called ‘Tell Me A Dragon.’ We will be writing our own description of a dragon, using the descriptive techniques used in the book. This will then lead us into our literacy novel based around the same theme. The name of this text, I don’t want to give away just yet. It will be revealed shortly.

Our topic this term is Vikings, which follows on nicely from our Romans topic last half term. The children are really enthusiastic about the topic, having already learned about the Romans and the Celts. Our literacy text also links to the Vikings, which might be another clue.

In PE we have started Tag Rugby. Throwing, passing, catching and running with the ball are all on the agenda. We have also started our swimming sessions, which are going swimmingly! The children are really enjoying being in the pool.

Last but not least, please continue to support your child with their learning by reading with them regularly at home and helping them practise their spellings and timetables.
