Autumn Term

This term we will be exploring 'Where in the world are we?' in our Topic lessons. We will recap our work/knowledge of the UK and then extend this to explore our country further. Identifying the seas, rivers and various landmarks and landscapes that make our country famous. We will also be exploring the continents and oceans of our world. We will compare and contrast climate, landscape, animals, plants and living conditions in various parts of our country to that of Africa, focussing our attention on Kenya.In our art/dt lessons we will explore the work of the Pablo Picaso and Elisha Ongere and compare similarities and differences in their work through watercolours, pastels, sketching and sculpture.

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.

In Maths we are continuing our exploration of our number system - developing our problem solving and reasoning through ' Singapore 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 Materials. 

PE

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

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 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.
