Curriculum

This term we are going to be look at how science is involved in the world of wild animals and plants. Key topics we will be covering include:

 

  • Classification of plants and animals
  • Living things
  • Evolution
  • Variation and inheritance
  • Charles Darwin and Mary Anning
  • Endangered and Extinct animals and the threats they face

 

PE

Our PE days will be Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, with occasional PE enrichment sessions on a Friday

morning. However, it is important that children have access to their PE kits at all times during the 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 then 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 every Friday. Spellings will be set on a Friday for a

test on Wednesday. Spelling lists for the term and the weekly pages set from the CGP books can be found on

the Spelling page and Weekly Home Learning page respectively.

We also have a high regard at school for reading books.  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.
