Welcome back to what is sure to be yet another busy term for Ahlberg class. I hope you had a lovely and very relaxing Easter. Our topic this term is 'The History of Communication'. We are going to learn all about how communication has changed over time from cave painting during the Stone Age, to the use of Morse Code, to the modern day telephone.
In our maths lessons the children will be covering all 5 blocks from the curriculum. This will involve lots of problem solving and reasoning. In support of our maths lessons the children have access to Doodlemaths which they can use to answer daily questions and earn stars.
In our english lessons we will be focusing on adventure stories, persuasive writing, take one poet- poetry appreciation and take one book where we will be focusing on Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. Where possible, our english topics will link with other areas of the curriculum.
Our science topic this term is 'Living Things'. The children will learn how to identify the different parts of a plant and describe their functions, understand how water is transported within plants and know the part that flowers play in the cycle of a flowering plant including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.
In our art and D&T lessons the children will have the chance to design something that can be used for communication. We will explore the different communication methods, practice our artistic skills and design a final piece.
These are just a few of our many subjects that we will be covering this term. To see more, take a look at our curriculum leaflet lower down the page.
Please continue to support your children to become independent and reflective learners. Remind them that homework must be in on time every time and of our EPOW (Every Piece of Work) matters pledge.
If you have any queries please do pop in and see me at the end of the day or arrange an appointment via the school office.
Homework is given out on Tuesdays and Fridays.
It is also vitally important to read every night and practise times tables as the children are tested every Friday morning.
