Summer Term

This term we will begin our topic of 'The Great Fire of London'. We will recap our knowledge of the UK and its capital city of London then extend this to explore our country further. Identifying the seas, rivers and various landmarks and landscapes that make our country famous. We will compare and contrast climate, landscape, animals, plants and living conditions in various parts of the country. In our art/dt lessons we will explore the work of various Stuart Period artists 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. 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 humans, animals and their habitats and plants linking these to our topic work where relevant. We will explore the plantlife found in our country. During this term we will link this to life in the past during 1666 in London and explore similarities and differences from then and now... Discussing how the plantlife and animals may of changed.

PE

Our PE lessons are on a Tuesday and Thursday 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!

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.
