Termly Learning Focus

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Term 2 has flown by and we have all been working extremely hard. We enjoyed Never Just A Book by Joshua Seigal and we used what we learned from the authors to create our own versions titled Never Just A War and enjoyed performing these to the rest of the class. In Maths, we worked hard on fractions and have learnt how to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions with great success. This term we have also enjoyed our Thursday afternoon music lessons learning how to play the ukulele and the glockenspiel.  

When we return in Term 3, we will be learning many new things:

In Literacy we are exploring the Disney short film feast and will be writing our own stories.

In Maths we will be continuing our fractions knowledge and using that knowledge when learning decimals and percentages.

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

Science

Humanities

Art/Design Technology

Computing

Music

PE

Light

History – Early Islamic Civilisations

Pop Art

Web page creation

Jazz 2

Football

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.
  • Homework engagement will be checked every Friday by an adult in their class. Homework this term will continue to be Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and Reading 3X a week as well as Year 6 SATs books.
  • P.E will take place on a Wednesday afternoon 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.
