Our Big Question for the term is 'What is in our forests?', which links our Science topic 'Plants' with our Geography topic 'British forests and woodlands'.
Our English writing this term will be based on three main texts. The first story is Hodgeheg, which we will be using to write a brochure to inform someone about road safety. Our second text is Jim and the Beanstalk. We will be using this story to write our own sequel. Our final text is Bog Baby and our focus will be on writing character and setting descriptions. Children will be encouraged to continue playing on Spelling Shed, which is an online resource to support them with their spellings at home. These spellings will be tested each Friday.
In Maths, the children will continue to develop their times table understanding, focusing on multiplying and sharing (division). Children must know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables with rapid recall. Please continue to practise these facts at home using using Times Tables Rock stars to help support the speed and accuracy of their times tables.
We will also review written addition and subtraction calculations, before investigating statistics (charts and pictograms). In geometry, we will be looking at the properties of shapes.
Please see the topic web below for more information.
Children will be expected to read most nights in the week for at least 10 minutes. Please record what you have been reading and how your child has got on with the book in your child's reading record.
P.E will be every Wednesday, so make sure that your child comes in to school in the correct kit. Please make sure hair is tied back and that earrings are not worn, if your child is not confident with taking them out.
