"Why is Brazil always in the news?"

Brazil is the largest country in South America and the fifth largest nation in the world. It forms an enormous triangle on the eastern side of the continent with a 7,400km coastline along the Atlantic Ocean. It has borders with every South American country except Chile and Ecuador. The varied landscapes makes this a fascinating country for children to learn about and compare to our local area. Children will be learning about many aspects of Brazil including the land, weather, the rainforest, language and culture of this amazing country. 

In computing children will be developing their skills in creating multimedia presentations about their learning in the topic of Brazil.

PE

Please can your child keep a named PE kit in school all week (dark shorts and/or jogging bottoms, a white T-shirt and trainers or plimsolls.) If the weather is fine, PE may take place outdoors so please make sure your child has an outdoor kit. Please can you also ensure that all items of school clothing are named to prevent any mix-ups at the end of the day.

Homework

Your child has been given a new homework menu which contains a variety of homework tasks for them to complete in their own time. (A copy can be downloaded below). Each task has an allocated number of points with the aim being for each child to reach 25 points by the end of the half term. This will be checked every Friday afternoon.
