Welcome back to what is sure to be a busy term for Ahlberg class. I hope you had a lovely and very relaxing summer break. Our topic this term is 'The Romans'. We are going to learn all about the Roman Invasion, how the Romans lived, how they ruled and what they did for fun in their spare time.
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 traditional tales and fables, writing and performing a play, recounts, instructions, limericks and building our vocabulary. Where possible, our english topics will link with other areas of the curriculum.
Our science topics this term are 'Forces and Magnets' and 'Animals including Humans'. In our first topic the children will learn about 'pushes' and 'pulls', types of resistance, types of force, such as gravity and making predictions about magnets and learning how they work. In our second topic after half term the children will learn about nutrition, muscles and skeletons.
Our art lessons will take us on a journey through Roman Mosaics and Pottery. The children will get the chance to explore how Mosaics were made and create their own and they will learn all about Roman Pottery.
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.
Over the Easter holidays, the children were set a homework task to learn about their local area. Here are just a few of the presentations made by the children.
