Welcome to Term 5!

This term, we will be learning all about volcanoes! Our learning will take us to the wonderful island of Iceland, where volcanoes are a part of resident's every-day lives. We will be learning how they cope with living alongside one of nature's monsters as well as delving back in time to understand the impact of one particular eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the city of Pompeii. 

As always, we will have a class book. This term, we will be reading The Last Wild by Piers Torday. You can see a picture of the front cover below. What do you think the book might be about?

It is extremely important that children read at home, as well as spend time on TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed. Children have their own log-in details for these, which are written on their reading records, but please ask if you have misplaced them. MyOn can help with reading at home. This website will direct the children straight onto the Accelerated Reader website, so that they can take a quiz. They will be rewarded with 2 dojo points each time they achieve 100% in their quizzes.
