Termly Learning Focus

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are now entering the final term of the year. In a year which has seen much change and need to adapt, it is lovely to have everyone in school and learning in the Summer Term. Last term had some real highlights, including some memorable work in both Geography and English, where we thought about presenting our learning in different ways.

In Term 6, we will be learning many new things:

In Literacy we are exploring fiction through the text ‘Journey’ by Aaron Becker, which is a truly beautiful picture book. We will also think about non-fiction writing, where we will be creating holiday brochures.

In Maths we will be working hard at developing our understanding of Decimals, Area, Money, Time, Properties of Shape and Position and Direction.

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

 

Science

Humanities

Design Technology

Computing

PE

Electricity

Living Things and their Habitats

Anglo-Saxons

Vikings

Paper Circuits (Structures and Mechanisms)

Repetition in Shapes

Athletics

How can you help with your child’s learning in school and at home?

  • Daily reading at home remains an important part of your child’s learning and is essential if your child is to progress across the curriculum. Reading journals must be in school every day so adults can use them to record when they read with the children. Children are required to complete the child’s comments section every week.
  • Homework engagement will be checked every Friday by an adult in their class. Homework this term will continue to just be Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and Reading 3X a week. Homework Club is available for the children to use every Tuesday after school (3.30-4.20).
  • P.E will take place on a Wednesday this term for both classes. On a Wednesday children are required to come into school in their PE kit, they will not need uniform to get changed into. Children with long hair will be expected to tie it up for PE due to health and safety reasons and children with earrings should ensure that they are removed on PE days.
