Curriculum

Our Topic this term is 'Our Planet' 

This topic will focus around our class guided reading book ‘The Story of the Blue Planet’. In Geography we will be looking at how different islands are formed and in History we will be looking at how our planet changed through the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. In Science we will be looking at plants and animals.

PE

Our PE days will be Wednesday and Thursday, with occasional PE enrichments on a Friday morning. On Tuesdays and Thursdays children will take part in a whole school sporting activity (Golden Mile and Spaghetti Shake) and they have the opportunity to go on the field at lunchtime on Mondays and Thursdays. Therefore, it is important that children have their PE kits in school for the whole week.

Homework

During the academic year your child will have homework each week.  This is intended to help them consolidate the learning that takes place during lesson time.  It is important that you allow your children time at home to complete these tasks and where you can, talk to your child to ensure they understand the importance of them.

Homework will be handed out every Friday and taken in the following Friday. Spellings will be set weekly and tested on a Friday. However, the whole half term overview can be found on the spelling sheets page.

 

All children have the opportunity to take a reading book home so please ensure that your child reads as much as they can.  One way of ensuring this, is to get your child to read aloud to you at home as much as possible. There is a list of suggested questions which can help with developing comprehension skills and this can be found on the English page.
