Welcome to Term 5 - Water

 

We are looking forward to another exciting term learning all about water.

 

Literacy - In our literacy lessons, we will be basing our learning on the book 'Kensuke's Kingdom' by Michael Morpurgo. 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 time (analogue and digital), number (the four operations in concise methods) and measurements (length, capacity and mass). We will continue to practise our times tables weekly.

 

Science - In our science lessons we will be exploring states of matter - gasses, liquids and solids. Through experimenting, we will continue to work on our investigative skills - identifying variables and ensuring a fair test.

 

PSHE - In PSHE we will be comparing and appreciating different types of families. We will discuss how our families are similar or different and what makes them unique and special to us.

 

Geography - In geography we are finding out how rivers are made, where they start (the source) and where they meet the sea (the mouth). We will use ICT to track rivers around the world and we will create our own mini water cycle to help us understand how rain is formed. 

 

Music - In music we are introducing the children to further genres of music, using percussion instruments to compose our own accompanying melodies and harmonies. We will also take part in singing assemblies with Mrs Jarvis.

 

French - In French we are learning vocbulary associated with food, animals and parts of the body. 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., Peacocks class will complete outdoor sessions based on athletics skills, including running, jumping and throwing. All classes, during indoor P.E., will work on our dance skills, putting moves to music.

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 warm clothing for outdoor P.E. sessions as well as indoor P.E. kit for dance 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.

 

 

Thank you
