Termly Learning Focus

Dear Parents and Carers,

In English this term, we have completed a piece of writing based on the book ‘Counting on Katherine’. We wrote a recount of her life and the importance of her work in the Apollo missions. We have also written a story based on ‘The Wolves the Walls’. The children created a story full of suspense to keep the reading guessing what will happen next. The children’s writing was brilliant! In Maths, we have worked on our understanding of Fractions.

Across the curriculum, we have explored plants in Science, the Bronze Age in History, a string unit of work in Music and athletics in PE.

In Term 6, we will be looking at the myth Theseus and the Minotaur, and create a diary entry based on ‘The Journal of Iliona’. In Maths we will be looking at time, properties of a shape, then ending the year with mass and capacity. In PSHE we will be learning about healthy eating and being active.

Across the rest of the curriculum, we are growing our learning in:

Science

Art

How can you help your child at home?

To support your child with their current Maths learning, ask your child what the time is; what the hands on the clock mean and look at analogue and digital clock.
