Termly Learning Focus

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Can you believe it is the final term of the year! The children were very busy last term and enjoyed writing their own poem and a persuasive letter to an author. The children consolidated their decimals learning and then onto learning about money. The children began their Electricity topic in Science which will continue next term and provide lots of hands on learning. In Hisory the children learnt about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings

This term we will continue to work on time in Maths before moving on to Statistics and Properties of Shape. In Literacy we will begin the term with a narrative focus exploring Journey by Aaron Becker before moving onto more poetry when look at Haiku’s and Tankas. In Geography we will carry out a local study about Wellingborough and get out and explore the physical features of our town. Swimming will also continue every Friday afternoon until the end of the school year. In PSHE we will be learning about healthy lifestyles.

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

Science

Geography

DT

Music

Computing

PE

Electricity

Local Study - Wellingborough

Paper Circuits

Glocks- focus on note reading

 

 

 

Repetition in games

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

  • Write a fact file about what you know about our local area. What natural features do you know about? Think about rivers and parks for example.
  • 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. This year your child will be exploring the library.
