We are now approaching the end of the year and the children are beginning to prepare to move up to Key Stage 2. Our themes this term will be Plants in Science and Changes within Childhood in History. We will also be going swimming each week and making the most of the (hopefully) good weather by doing athletics on Thursdays.
In Maths this term, we will complete our unit on Mass, Capacity and Temperature, then move on to Fractions.
In Computing, we will be handling data and then moving on to trickier coding challenges.
Homework and spellings will be set on a Friday, to be returned on the following Friday.
We encourage children to read as often as possible at home to an adult, as this will greatly support the development of their literacy skills. Children who read regularly at home make more rapid progress in all subjects. We have a “three times a week” reading challenge in our class to encourage reading at home with children who read five times a week getting additional dojo points. With this in mind, I will be inviting parents in as volunteers to hear children read this term. Please let me know if you can spare an hour.
If you have any questions, please message me on Seesaw, or contact the office to arrange an appointment.
Mrs J. Tyson
