Spring Term 2019
I hope you have all had a fantastic Christmas and I would like to wish you all the very best for 2019. Below is an outline of what the children will be covering during this term.
The children will be focusing on the following mathematical aspects this term:
- Decimals and Percentages
Please continue to encourage your children to practise their times tables using Times Tables Rockstars.
We will be studying the novel ‘Letters from the lighthouse’ by Emma Carroll, which links to our WW2 topic. Using this text as inspiration, we will be producing different genres of writing such as:
- Diary Entries
- Formal Letters
- Persuasive Writing
- Newspaper Reports
We will also be focusing on spelling, punctuation and grammar throughout the term. Please encourage your children to practise their spellings on Spelling Shed each week. Children will now be tested on Tuesdays.
Reading is a vital part of your child’s learning and the more they read, both in school and at home, the greater the impact on their overall progress. Please question your children about what they have read.
Sources – The children be focusing on the Bible and how readings from both the New and Old Testament impact on the lives of Christians.
Islam Focus Week – During this term, the children will spend a week learning about the Islamic religion.
Electricity – Children will learn how to construct series circuits and use a range of different symbols to represent circuits.
During this term, children will continue learning how to design write and debug different programs. They will also develop their understanding on how to use technology safely and respectfully.
WW2 – The children will learn about the effects of WW2 on the people of Britain. We will focus on the blitz, evacuations and rationing. We will also be comparing and contrasting the information we have researched about WW2 with other time periods. Children will locate countries and continents affected by the War and create a detailed timeline of British history and placing WW2 on this.
Homework is an essential part of your child’s development and vital in this stage of their academic career. I would ask that you support and encourage them as much as you can. I hope that you find this information useful. Homework will be handed out on a Wednesday afternoon and collected in on the following Wednesday morning. Full PE kits should be in school all week. Should you have any questions regarding your child’s education, please do not hesitate to contact me.
