We already know the interest you take in your child’s work. If you can, please discuss with your child the work they have done as the term progresses and let them teach you.
Teaching in a thematic way, the national curriculum requirements of English, Maths, Science and R.E will be interwoven with our topic learning. 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 Science we will exploring animals including humans. We will study the life cycle of animals. Build understanding that exercise makes the heart work harder and that it is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle and find out about healthy lunch box foods. In our RE learning we will be focussing on different celebrations and festivals as well as considering different beliefs, practices and ways of life. In RHSE we will be looking at the unit called me and my relationships where will explore how to keep healthy, growth Mindset and goal setting.
P.E. will take place on a Monday afternoon where we will continue to wear our P.E 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 P.E 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. Pupils will also have the opportunity to bring
a book home from the school library. Please make sure children have their books
available to read every day.
Spellings and work from This will be given out on a Friday and to be returned the following Thursday in
an area of the curriculum: homework books. Spellings will be tested on a Friday.
Doodle Maths: Daily Maths practice to ensure that gaps are continually being filled and there is continual progression
In addition to me the class have 'Fuller Friday as they will be taught by Mrs Fuller. Additionally, 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.
