Welcome to Netton Class!
Week 1 – 23rd March 2020
We hope that now school is closed everyone is staying well and happy. Please remember to look at your packs and try to complete a maths, SPaG and reading sheet each day. As the sun is shining why not do a hunt around your garden for 2D and 3D shapes, remembering to think about their properties (sides, vertices for 2D and edges, faces and vertices for 3D). This week you should also be writing your own versions of Jack and the Beanstalk. Try to use some amazing vocabulary and fantastic punctuation. Make sure you go outside for a really good play or go for a walk with a grown up. We have suggested some science and topic ideas for you to try in the afternoon. If you do anything you are really proud of ask a grown up to email it to school and we will put it on the webpage for your friends to see.
Most importantly, look after yourselves and look after your families – you are all amazing!

In terms 3 and 4 our topic is Castles.
We will be thinking about what it was like to live in a castle and we will be designing our own castles, trebuchets and battering rams!
We will also be taking part in the Take One Picture scheme for the National Gallery which we are very excited about. It is a great opportunity to do some terrific cross-curricular learning. This years painting is The Battle of San Romano by Paolo Uccello, 1438-40. Please take a look on their website to become familiar with the scheme:
It would be great if you could chat about the painting and castles at home and if you have any interesting books or facts about either, please bring them in to class and share them with us during ‘show and tell’.
Homework in Netton
