Violet Class

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 reading raffle.

English 

This term we will be studying the book 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty. The book explores one child's life during the Victorian time period. We will continue to look at varying our sentence structures and using a wide range of punctuation including semi-colons and colons. 

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 continue our reading lessons through'Destination Reader'. The children will be looking at learning behaviours and exploring all the different skills needed to be a good reader. During our sessions, we will be looking at a range of texts which link to the Victorians. 

Maths

During this term, we will be looking at algebra, converting measurements, area, perimeter and volume. 

Please continue to encourage your child to practise their times tables at home using times table rockstars and education city.
