We have enjoyed the books we have read so far this year. In the Summer Term we will start by looking at the book, The Secret of Black Rock. We will be looking at, sea shanties, writing descriptions of places and persuasive texts amongst others.
We are going to start the term learning phase 5 part 2, learning new tricky words. We will also be continuing to revise part 1 and consolidating our knowledge of the tricky words. Ensuring we are able to spell these correctly.
This term we will be focussing on new strategies to support children with their addition and subtraction skills, fractions, where will be finding halves and quarters, numbers to 100 and we will end the half term with our Maths No Problem chapter on money.
Types of Animals - In this unit children will observe and recognise some simple characteristics of animals. They will learn that animals are similar to each other in some ways and different in other ways. They will begin to start grouping animals by the key features of their appearance. Children will recognise that different animals live in the local environment and can name some of them. They will recognise similarities and differences within and between animals, classifying familiar animals according to their characteristics. They will gather information on animals and present the data in tables, Carroll diagrams and bar charts, making simple interpretations of these using them to answer and generate questions.
We are going to be looking at Geography in the topic, Where do I Live? We will be looking at map reading, how the local area has changed over time and plan to take a trip within the local area.
This half term the children will be looking at Baptism. We will be learning what it is, why it is special and why we get baptised. We will also go on a trip to Christ Church to see how Baptism happens.
This term P.E. will be on a Thursday with our sports coaches. Please send your child in on a Thursday wearing a PE kit that is weather appropriate. We will be doing gymnastics this term.
We will also have P.E. on a Friday in school. Please also wear PE kits on Friday as well.
Long hair must be tied back and earrings need to be removed/covered with tape.
Reading books will be going home on a Friday. It is really important to read these with your child and ask questions about the book too. Please ensure that you bring the book back in on a Friday so that it can be changed ready for the weekend.
