Welcome to Term 6 - Habitats
We are looking forward to another exciting term learning all about habitats.
Literacy - In our literacy lessons, we will be basing our learning on fables, stories from other cultures and traditional tales. We will explore a range of genres in our writing lessons, working towards a different theme for our BIG WRITE task each week.
Maths - In our maths workshops sessions and our maths lessons we are learning about place value, number, shape and fractions. We will continue to practise our times tables weekly.
Science - In our science lessons we will be exploring different habitats of the world. Through experimenting, we will continue to work on our investigative skills - identifying a question, making a prediction and observing what happens.
PSHE - In PSHE we will be talking about changes and how they affect our feelings and mood. We will be identifying changes in our lives and how we can deal with them.
Geography - In geography we will be creating our own world reference book. Using ICT and books we will be researching different continents and oceans.
Music - In music we are introducing the children to classical music through the Carnival of Animals by Saint - Saens. They will be listening and responding to the music and will be naming some orchestral instruments.
French - In French we are learning vocabulary associated animals. We will continue to explore the differences and similarities between French and British culture.
RE - In R.E. will explore the beliefs of Judaism and Hinduism, comparing these religions to our own and making links between them.
PE - In P.E., all classes will complete outdoor sessions based on field and striking games. We also are very lucky to have some tennis coaches from Excel coaching our children for four weeks. Peacocks during indoor P.E., will work on gymastic skills.
Owls and Eagles will go swimming every Tuesday. Please remember swim kits, including a swimming hat.
Please ensure that your child has a PE kit in school every Monday which can be returned home on a Friday. This should include appropriate clothing for outdoor P.E. sessions as well as indoor P.E. kit for lessons.
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 Tuesday ready for the following Monday. Each week children will have spellings and times tables 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.
We will complete a BIG WRITE on a Tuesday or Friday each week which will be based on our literacy learning. Big Talk homework will be given weekly so you can support your child's writing ideas with them prior to the session.
Children's reading books and 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.
'Drop in' sessions are ever Friday from 08.45 - 09.00. Please come in and see your child's progress in their books.
