The children have settled in well after the Christmas break. We have started a new topic: Frozen Kingdoms. We will be studying the climate, topography and wildlife of the polar regions. This week, we were looking at the similarities and differences between the Arctic and the Antarctic. If parents are able to, it would be very helpful to allow the children to watch the BBC series ‘The Frozen Planet’, which was first broadcast a few years ago. We will not have time in class to watch more than a few short clips from the series. In literacy, we have started a new book, Holes, by Louis Sachar. It’s a much-admired tale set in a juvenile correctional facility in Texas. The children seem to be enjoying it. In maths, the children have been doing really well dividing fractions using the KFC method (ask them to demonstrate it to you if you like). In French, we are studying shops and shopping, looking at the names of different shops. In PE the children have started doing dance with Mr Robertson.
