Turtles class is made up of 10 lovely Key Stage 2 children and 5/6 lovely staff.

In Turtles class we really enjoy our learning. We love to learn in different ways. We especially enjoy singing songs to help with our Maths and English and we like to cook and use computers. The children in Turtles class are really good at learning in a calm way. We are focused and hardworking which is awesome. The most wonderful thing about Turtles class is that we are always so polite and friendly to each other. We have happy days.

MathsIn Maths we are looking at division. We have started by thinking about it as sharing. At home you could practise sharing out food, toys… anything really. We are going to move on to relating it to fractions especially halves and quarters.
EnglishIn English we are looking at non-fiction books. We will be thinking about the features and how they are different to stories. We will move onto writing our own. Perhaps you could get some out of the library?
ScienceIn Science we are learning about Light and Dark. In school we will be looking at different light sources and discussing shadows. Perhaps some shadow puppets at home and talking about how our hands block the light.
