Please help your child to complete one activity from their homework grid every week. Homework must be handed in by Wednesday. If your child needs help with their homework, please speak with their class teacher before the return day.
Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school at the beginning of the week. They must have shorts and a t-shirt for indoor PE and trainers and a warm tracksuit for outdoor PE. No earrings are allowed to be worn during PE.
We change reading books four times per week. Please ensure that you have left a comment in the reading record each time your child reads at home. Please read as much as possible at home with your child. Ask them questions about their book to check their understanding and discuss any unknown vocabulary.
Tuesday is Times Table Award day, so please help your child to practise their times tables, ready for their challenge.
This half term our topic is Awesome Earth.
In English, we will read the text ‘River Story’ by Meredith Hooper, which will lead us onto non-fiction writing. We will explore and write our own explanation texts and fact files.
Our maths lessons this half term will focus on measuring mass, place value, addition and subtraction. The children will also continue to improve their speed in recalling the 3, 4 and 8 times tables, both in and out of sequence.
As part of our topic, the children will be learning about mountains and rivers, and will create landscape paintings.
In science, we will be continuing with studying animals including humans. We will be learning about nutrition, the human skeleton and how muscles work.
In PE, the children will be continuing with creating dance routines centred on the theme of combat. In gymnastics the children will begin to apply their movements to the apparatus. Our outdoor games sport this half term will be tennis.
