Homework at Red Hill Primary school has now changed. We now expect children to complete three pieces of online homework on MyMaths, Bug Club and Times Table Rockstars. This is alongside reading with a parent/carer three times a week. Class teachers will check that children have logged onto these websites on a Wednesday. If there are any problems accessing the sites please let your Class teacher know and there is an opportunity to use the computers in the ICT suite for Homework on Tuesday lunchtimes.

Autumn 1

Autumn 1 has been an amazing start to the academic year and we have thoroughly enjoyed exploring our Topic of 'Footprints in the past'!

  • We have explored the fossil curiosities with Mary Anning in English and discovered some interesting facts about the Stone age. We have been so inspired by these stories that our writing has been very descriptive - our teachers are very impressed.
  • We have learnt all about rocks and soils in Science; identifying them, categorising them and testing them for properties and permeability.
  • We have become superstar Mathematicians by practising our place value and number and learning new methods to add and subtract 3-digit numbers.
  • And we have become expert paleontologists in Topic - we have had the opportunity to meet Chris (a real paleontologist) who showed us a variety of fossils and the different types of dinosaurs. He even let us stroke Millie the dinosaur! We think that she was very impressed with our costumes and our gingerbread biscuits.

On top of all of this, we have been learning about Jesus in RE, the alphabet and letters in French, beat and rhytm in Music and we even managed to fit in a visit to learn a little about Diwali and how it is celebrated.  Below are just a few pictures to show how busy we have been in our Footprints from the Past topic.

Autumn 2

We hope you all have a restful half term!

Our next topic is 'Living together' in which we will be looking at our local community and studying the book 'Moon Man' in English.
