Termly Learning Focus

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

We had a really enjoyable first term, and are ready dive into our learning in Term 2. We look forward to building upon the very positive start to the year which both classes have had.

This term we will be learning many new things:

In Literacy we are exploring the poem ‘The Highwayman’ by Alfred Noyes, and we will be exploring diary entries through Scott of the Antarctic.

In Maths we are working hard finishing our work on Statistics. We will then explore Multiplication and Division. After this we will then look at Area and Perimeter.

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

Science

Humanities

Art/Design Technology

Computing

Music

PE

Animals including Humans

History: Ancient Egypt

Geography:

North America

DT:

Making Bread

Art:

The Art of Anatomy

Vector Drawing

Dancing in the Streets

Swimming

How can you help your child at home? This term we would like you to help the children to find out about North America. This can be through using maps or Google Earth. The National Geographic for Kids has a brilliant website, where you can find lots of information. Can they find out about important land features?

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. Your child will come home with a library book, please enjoy it, and talk about it with them. The children have really enjoyed being able to access the Library again.

Homework engagement will be checked every Friday by an adult in their class. Homework this term will be Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and Reading 3X a week.

P.E for Year 5 this term will be their Swimming. This will be every Friday. Please ensure that they have their Swimming Kit every week. Children with long hair will be expected to tie it up for swimming so that it is fully covered by their swimming hat, and children with earrings should ensure that they are removed on swimming days.
