Termly Learning Focus

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Term 6 is here and it’s the last term before our wonderful Year 6s leave us. We have many things to look forward to this term. Leavers hoodies should have all made their way to you by now and the children can wear these as part of their everyday school uniform. This term in Literacy we will be delving into our first topic based around the traditional tale of Goldilocks. The children will be putting their own spin on events and writing an eye-catching newspaper article about Goldilocks’ crimes. In Maths we will be working hard with geometry, measurements and properties of shapes.

We also have some children taking part in their Bike Ability road safety training in the first week back.

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

Science

Humanities

Art/Design Technology

Music

PE

Electricity

Trading across the world

Aerial Travel – structures and mechanisms

Ukuleles and Glockenspiels

Cricket and Rounders

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 and the allocated pages in the SATs books.
  • P.E will take place on a Wednesday afternoon 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.
