Hey Eiger ninjas!
I hope you had a wonderful Half Term holiday with your families. I missed talking to you all on the phone! I will call you this week. I can't wait to hear about your holiday adventures. If you have any questions to ask me you can write them down for when I call.
We are starting a new story this week. It's called If All The World Were by Joseph Coelho. We have finished fractions and will be learning about time for maths. You will be able to tell and write the time to five minutes, including quarter past/to the hour and draw the hands on a clock face to show these times. You will know the number of minutes in an hour and the number of hours in a day. If you’ve done some fantastic work or an activity, send me a picture of it and I will upload it on our class page under Work of the Week for everyone to see! If you have any ideas for our daily Special Task you can email it to me and I will post it on our page.
Don't forget to send your Epic! Book Recommendations to me. You might like to recommend a book you've read to a friend in our class. You can find them under the Daily Reading links. I know lots of you have been asking about Mathletics... we don't use it anymore! Instead I've set up two new maths websites for you to play games on. They're called:
Click the names to access the websites. Every parent has been sent an email with the details to log-in.
Over the holidays I went for walks in the park, made some Greek spinach pie, and looked after my plants. My seedlings are growing and I'm very excited! Are you growing anything? I also did lots of reading and ordered a new book. Did you read anything exciting? Here's some pictures:
Send me your pictures too and I will post them on next week’s update!
The weather is going to stay beautiful until Thursday, so go for a lovely walk, run, bike or scooter with your family.
It’s really important to keep exercising to stay healthy! It also makes us feel happy. I know lots of you are doing exercises at home and are going to the park. You can also do PE with Joe Wicks every morning at 9:00 am on YouTube. Here's the link to his channel.
Please keep sending me your work (a photo or a document on the computer) and email me if you need any help or even if you just want to talk.
Sending you all big hugs,
From Miss Tanner

Epic! Book Recommendations
From Melanie to Eiger Class:
Mum and I found a good section on healthy eating and cooking books on Epic.
From Aaliyah to Najeeb and Zuun:
The book I want to recommend you is called Jesse Owens by Jane Sutcliffe. I think you would both like this book because you are really into sports.
If you have read a book off of Epic! Reading that you'd like to recommend to a friend or the class, email your review to email@example.com or tell me on the phone and I will post them here.
Here's a fun crossword to do (it's made up of last week's spelling words).
Click on the picture and it will download the document for you to type in.
Here's our new words for this week:
Weekly Times Tables
Sign in to TT Rockstars to practice your times tables and play fun games! Look in your emails for details!
Our 4 times tables are new to us so we should keep practicing! Here's a song to help you learn:
Can you make groups of fours using small objects around the house? Count the groups in fours out loud.
You can also play this game (make sure you click on the 4 times tables!).
Weekly Project: ScienceAnimals, as well as humans, have offspring which grow into adults.
Offspring are a person or animal's children.
Ask your mum questions about what she had to do to care for you as a baby. How did these things change as you started to grow and get older?
Can you match these different species of animals to the names of the male/female and their offspring?
Draw the animals and their offspring on a piece of spare paper.
You can use the internet to help you research the names.
