What are we learning this term?
In English we will be reading and writing stories with from different cultures. We will explore the different settings in which the stories take place. Children will compare and contrast the different stories we read. Children will also have the opportunity to create poems and perform their poems to an audience. We will be learning about advertisements and identifying the features that make a great advert.
Children will take part in guided reading twice a week.
In Maths we will be developing our understanding of fractions. Children will use their understanding of measurement to measure the perimeter and area of different shapes. We will solve practical problems using measures including money and time. Children will learn about angles in different shapes and learn to plot coordinates on a grid.
In Science we will be learning about the digestive system including teeth. Children will learn the names of the organs in the digestive system and create their own model. We will also be learning about the different types of teeth and how different foods effect our teeth. The children will also be exploring how sound is created.
In History we will compare and contrast the lives of richer people and poorer people in the past. The children will also learn about centuries and will use their knowledge to plot events on a timeline. In Geography, we will be learning about the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. We will also be planning our own journeys to different destinations in England using maps and timetables.
For P.E. this term we will be doing Aerial Ninjas with Miss Chloe once a week. We will be going swimming every Thursday.
A homework planner will be given out at the beginning of each term so that you can see what is expected during that time. Pupils can pick any activity to complete each week as homework, in any order.
Spelling words will go home on Monday for children to practice ready for our spelling test on Friday. Maths activities to support your child's progress will be sent home on Wednesday and due back the following Monday.
To help your child continue to make good progress in reading, please ensure they are reading for 20 minutes at least 3 times a week. Children are able to swap their reading books in school when they are ready for a new book.
