Hi everyone and welcome to Newlands class page!
Our class motto is 'Good today, Brilliant tomorrow" and that's what we try to achieve everyday. We work hard, strive to meet our targets and help each other.
This half term, our topic is Slavery and Black History. We are learning about the significant people involved in the fight for equality, including Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jnr. We are also thinking about slaves and using role play to understand how they would have felt, as well as bringing the issue up to date and asking whether slavery still exists, but in a different form. As part of our learning about multi-cultural society, we will be exploring the local area of Mansfield Woodhouse to look for evidence of different cultures and backgrounds within our community.
In Maths, we are focusing on place value and caluclations, particularly the use of written methods in all four operations, and to include decimals with up to three decimal places, and in Science, electricity and circuits is our topic. Our PE days are Mondays (indoor) and Wednesdays (outdoor) and we have ukulele lessons on Fridays; this is also the day that we hand our reading records in to get our reading star. We are aiming to enjoy a tea and cake/biscuits afternoon as a reward!
