What fantastic homework Birch Class!
A few parents have asked about SATs preparation and what they can do at home in order to help develop Maths and English skills.
There are many Maths and English KS1 practice booklets that you can purchase from Amazon. These vary in price from £4.00 - £9.00.
These can also be found in many bookstores please make sure that it is New Curriculum (2016) if you decide to purchase them.
I will also be sending home reasoning questions that the children may have got wrong in class. Can you please make sure these are returned to school once completed.

Our topic this term is Dragons, Knights and Castles
This term the children we will be learning about Castles, Knights and Dragons.
We have lots of exciting activities planned during the Summer Term. We are planning a visit to Warwick Castle to get a real feel for what it was like living in these grand buildings during the Medieval period.
In our ART and DT lessons we will be designing our own castles and weapons to defend them from a possible attack.
The first castles were made of wood!
Windsor Castle is the oldest still occupied European castle.
Castles were built strictly for defence purposes to keep enemies out!
The stairs in castles always turned clockwise.
There were no toilets, but rather little constructions called “garderobes,” a hole through which users would aim their waste products, which would ultimate go through shoots which wound up in the surrounding moats. EWWWWWWWW!!!!
