Class Teacher: Miss Abbie Sinden
Our PE lessons will take place on a Wednesday this term. Please ensure your child has the correct kit in school!
Please encourage your child to complete their homework independently and on time - it will help them in the transition to Secondary school!
Remember to sign your child's reading journal for them to be entered into the Friday raffle.
This term we will be studying the book 'The Highwayman'by Alfred Noyes and illustrated by Charles Keeping. This narrative poem, written in 1913, tells a tragic tale of love, jealousy and bravery. With evocative language, a powerful rhythm and strong patterning, it is ideal for performance. We will look and learn about setting and characters, story telling, historical content, newspaper writing and additional research.
A new handwriting scheme has been adopted by the whole school so we will spend time learning how to join letters correctly and fluently. It is an expectation that all children in Key Stage 2 should be joining their writing so please encourage your children at home.
In our reading sessions, we will be beginning a new way of teaching reading called 'Destination Reader'. The children will be looking at learning behaviours and exploring all the different skills needed to be a good reader.
During this term, we will be looking closely at fractions. We will be begin the term looking at simplifying, ordering and comparing fractions. After this, we will move on to adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions.
We will also look at geometry, focusing on position and direction.
Please continue to encourage your child to practise their times tables at home!
