Welcome to Term 2  - The Black Death

 

 We are excited to be learning together and have lots of exciting topics and work planned.

 

This term we are researching and learning about the Great Plague

 

Literacy - In our literacy lessons, we will be basing our learning around The kiss of Death book and Christmas.

 

Maths - In our maths workshops sessions and our maths lessons we are learning about addition and subtraction.  We will continue to practise our times tables three times a week using Times Tables Rocks and will also complete maths problem solving and mastery tasks.

 

Science - In our science lessons we will be exploring magnets and force. We will continue to work on our investigative skills - identifying a question, making a prediction and observing what happens.

 

PSHE - We will be looking at friendship and respect.

 

Music - We will be learning about different styles of music and using instruments

 

Art - We will be completing seasonal art

 

French - In French we are learning numbers and greetings. We will be looking at some French picture books.

 

RE - In R.E. we will be looking at christianity.

 

PE - In P.E., all classes will complete outdoor and indoor sessions each week.  Indoor PE will be dance and outdoor will be multi skills.  Toucans will be swimming every Tuesday.

Please ensure that your child has a PE kit in school every Monday as classes will have PE on different days.  The PE kit can be returned home on a Friday. This should include appropriate clothing for both indoor and outdoor.

 

We will be practicing weekly for the Christmas performance.

 

All children can bring their own class water bottle into school to ensure they drink enough water to stay hydrated and focused for learning.

 

Homework will be sent home on a Wednesday ready for the following Monday return.  Each week children will have spellings to learn and a mymaths activity to complete online. There is also a topic homework with fun and creative things to do which is voluntary.

Children will complete weekly spelling assessments in a spellings books which will remain in school.

 

We will complete a BIG WRITE twice a term, at the beginning and at the end. This may be a piece of writing relevant to the work we are completing or a off topic subject.

 

We love reading!

Reading is part of our daily routine and is an important part of our children's development. We would love our children to read at least 4 times a week.  This can be a reading book, shared reading, bedtime stories or even road signs and shopping lists!

Children's reading books and fantastic new reading records will go home with them each night so their home reading can be recorded. Please encourage your child to read a range of texts regularly at home.  Please take time to familarise yourself with the reading records.

 

Thank you
