This term we will begin our topic of 'Titanic'. We will recap our knowledge of the UK and its capital city of London then extend this to explore other of our countries key cities. Also looking at map reading and navigation. Identifying the seas and oceans that surround us. We will learn about the history of our waterways, ship building and the role /importance of lifeboats. In our art/dt lessons we will explore the work of various Titanic Era and Pre World War 1 era artists. Creating our own interpretations of their work in pencil, pastel and watercolour. We will also be making models of the Titanic and the Iceberg.
In Literacy we will continue exploring our Read Write Inc scheme and apply this to a variety of writing tasks completed across our curriculum subjects. Tasks such as story writing, report writing, recount writing, information texts and poetry. Extending this further into the Literacy and Language scheme.
In Maths we will continue our exploration of our number system - developing and enhancing our problem solving and reasoning skills through ' Mastery Maths'. We will extend our use of the numberline and various other ways of recording 'our working' (column method) to help us with our + and - . Linking these building skills to multiplication, division, fractions, money, time and measures.
In Science we will be exploring our topics of Materials linking these to our topic work where relevant. We will explore the varety of natural and man-made materials around us in our environment. Exploring why they are 'fit for purpose'. We will also be 'working scientifically' asking and investigating answers to a variety of questions.
Our PE lessons are on a Monday and Thursday so please make sure you have your kit in.
We will also undertake the 'Golden Mile' Track task each day to support our PE lessons and fitness.
As the weather can be cool at this time of year I would aim to keep a pair of track suit pants or leggins in your bag for those outdoor lessons just incase it's a little chilly!
Talk Homework/SATs prep
Our talk homework will come home on a Friday. Please return it by Thursday of the following week so a new piece can be added ready for you and your son/daughter to complete together.
We will aim to change reading books daily when they are returned to school. If we don't see a written comment in the diary we will assume the text hasn't been read yet.
Please keep using and checking the websites I've listed to help your son/daughters journey towards their SATs in May.
Written below are some web addresses for sites we use regulary in class to support your childs learning.
Try them at home they are lots of fun!
