Welcome back to our Spring Term. This term is going to be as busy as ever.
Our topic work this term is ‘Crime and Punishment’. We are focusing on crimes and how they have been punished through history. This will take us through the ages and identify key changes and events from the past. The topic will end with an art project based on Banksy’s graffiti. Giving us an opportunity to discuss whether graffiti is viewed as ‘Art or Vandalism?’ Interesting!
Maths lessons will have a strong focus on fractions, number knowledge and times tables. We are really keen you take time at home, leading up to our SATs, to practise you times tables and our new Times Table Rock Stars will help you do this.
Also revision lessons have already started and our test practice and strategy lessons will begin very soon. These will be aimed at helping you cope with the ever closer SATs and give you the skills to tackle them at your ability. Busy, busy, busy!
Our English work will look at story writing using ‘The Highwayman’ poem by Alfred Noyes. We will also be working on non-fiction too, all of which will help to extend our use of correct tense, subordinate clauses, selecting vocabulary for effect and extending our use of various sentence styles and openers.
PLEASE learn your spellings and times tables every week and keep up with the reading at home.
Thursday - Dance (Both Classes)
Friday - PE (Both classes)
Children will need to wear their full P.E kit (white T-shirt, black shorts & pumps only trainers if we are outside) and be prepared for the weather (tracksuit bottoms/leggings, jumpers and trainers for cold and wet days).
If you ever need to pop in and see us, our doors are always open.
