Welcome back to the spring term.
This term we are exploring a project titled ‘Through the Ages’. In this project, your child will learn about periods of human history and become familiar historical terms to describe periods of time include decade, century, millennia, era, AD, CE, BC and BCE. They will then compare and contrast different ages including stone, bronze and iron. They will delve into what life was like for groups of people like the Celts and how their experience was different to living in 2022!
In addition, we will be following the national curriculum requirements of English, Maths, Science, RHSE and RE. In English, we will be looking at a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry texts and developing our understanding of spellings, punctuation and grammar. In Maths, we will be developing and applying the number system, securing numerical fluency and calculating. We will also be exploring fractions, measure, statistics and understanding geometry (properties of shape). In our RE learning we will be focusing on Sikhism, specifically Guru Nanak Gurpurab . In RHSE we will be looking at the unit called keeping myself safe.
P.E. will take place on a Wednesday where we will continue to wear our PE kit to school. The kit consist of a sky blue polo, royal blue Oaklands jumper, royal blue cotton shorts, socks and suitable sports trainers. For health and safety reasons earrings and watches should be removed for all PE lessons and long hair must be tied up.
Reading: Every night (15 minutes – please comment on your child’s reading record).
Reading books will be changed on a Monday and each pupil will take two books home
depending on their level of reading ability. Please make sure children have their books
available to read every day.
Work from an area This will be given out on a Wednesday and to be returned the following Monday in

Doodle Maths: Daily Maths practice to ensure that gaps are continually being filled and there is continual progression
We are supported in class by Miss Allen and Miss McGrath. If you, or anyone you know, has skills or knowledge that could enrich our in-class learning, we would love to hear from you and see if we can make use of this in our lessons.
