Summer Term

This term we will continue exploring 'The Great Fire of London' in our Topic lessons. We will recap our work/knowledge of the event and then extend this to explore our capital city further. Identifying the key architecture, rivers and various landmarks and landscapes that make our capital city famous. In particular the design work of Christopher Wren. We will continue exploring the landscape and waters of our country and the wonderful creatures that live there. We will compare and contrast life in 1666 and 2018, exploring jobs, lifestyles, clothing and food. In our art/dt lessons we will explore various techniques and compare similarities and differences in the work of artists of the Stuart period through watercolours, pastels, sketching and sculpture. And we will be designing and sewing our own Barney Bear to help us explore London in 1666. 

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, money, time and measures.

In Science we will be exploring our topic of humans and other animals and their habitats. 

PE

Our PE lessons are on a Monday and Tuesday so please make sure you have your kit in.

As the weather can still 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

In the 2nd half of the Summer term we will be swimming on either a Thursday or Friday. The children will swim in 2 groups and I will inform you closer to the time of which group they are in.

 

Talk Homework/SATs prep

Our talk homework will continue to 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.

Please keep using and checking the websites I've listed to help your son/daughters journey towards their SATs in May.
