In term 6, the children will be learning making comic strips, presentations, character profiles and research on different topics, but focusing on our History topic of the Tudors. In the second part of the term, we will read the wonderful story 'The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.'
This story will be worked with in depth for 3 to 4 weeks and it is part of the Power of Reading scheme of work.
Please continue to read with your child at home and send them to school with their reading journal. Also please practice their year 3 and 4 spellings which I gave you on parents evening.
We will be looking at a variety of areas in Maths, initially multiplication and division. Then we will go back and do further work on fractions, especially moving on from finding one quarter of an amount to three quarters. After the optional SATs we have completed this week, I will then teach to the gaps in the children's learning that I have identified.
Please ensure your child completes the weekly Maths homework and check their confidence with x2, x3, x4, x5, x6, x8 times tables.
