Just some of the fun we had in Class 4 last term...
We have a very busy term ahead! In a few weeks we have the Y6 SATs assessments and after that we will begin our end of year production.
English: We will be using the skills we have developed this year to write in a variety of genres for different purposes. Picture books, short films and topic research will be used to write short stories, explanation texts, newspaper articles, biographies and persuasive leaflets.
Maths: This term, we will be continuing to develop confidence in using the strategies taught so far this year in different problem solving contexts, including real life problems. I have been so impressed with the improvement shown in rapid recall of number facts and this will make the subject so much easier to grasp. Well done everyone!
R.E: This term, we will be considering our 'wonderful world'. Exploring different versions of the creation story and what would make a perfect world.
Science: Our topic this term will explore living things in their habitats and learn about evolution and inheritence.
Geography / History: We have introduced a ' mini topic' looking at volcanoes and the impact they have on life now and in the past.
Art/D. T: Mrs Hitch will work lead the art sessions, focusing on colour mixing to create impressionist landscapes and using the works of Van Gough and Monet to inspire us.
P.E: We will have two sessions of P.E per week. One developing orienteering skills and the other to focus on atheletics and team field games. P.E will normally take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays but please can you ensure your child has their P.E kit in school throughout the week.
French: In French we will be continue to build on basic conversation and how to describe the weather.
PSHE: This term, we will think about the importance of 'going for goals' and also learn about the importance of online E-safety. Later in the term, sessions are planned to help children understand puberty and relationships.
Music: During this term, we will be using our singing skills to present our end of term production...details to follow.
Reading: After having a group read in term 1 and 2, this term children will choose their individual reading books. Please support your child with reading, whatever their reading confidence. You could get them to tell you what is happening in the story, describe a character or read aloud to you.
We will be setting homework each week which will correspond with the objectives we are covering in school for Maths, English or Topic; this will be in addition to the spellings that the children will be tested on weekly. The spelling test will take place on a Friday. Please can you continue to ensure your child practices their spellings and times tables each week.
Homework will be set on a Friday and should be handed in by the following Wednesday. The homework which will be set is based around the themes we are studying in class, or provides enrichment activities to help the children revise and recall key information. I appreciate your support in helping and guiding your child with their homework activities.
If you have any questions or concerns about anything, please come in and speak to myself or ring if that is more convenient.
