Welcome to Spring 2!
We are really looking forward to welcoming your children back on the 8th of the March but have made the most of the last two weeks of being home with our local Geography unit and mapping the local area. We are very proud of the dedication shown over this period of remote learning, but are excited about springing back into the classroom very soon.
This half term and part of the Summer Term our topic will be the Blue Planet (with a river focus.)
We will be looking at persuasive writing related to our waterways and creating a non-chronological report as the topic starts. We will be reviewing and consolidating our SPAG knowledge already learnt this year. We will then be moving on to prepositions, speech and tense. In our reading, we will be continuing to read Oliver and the Seawigs, using VIPERS to understand and answer questions about the book. We will use other appropriate comprehensions to be able to extract information from independent reading. It is vital that children are given a range of books to use and read daily at home to become Star readers.
The children will continue to complete their weekly Arithmetic lessons. Within Power maths we will finish our Statistics unit and learn about fractions and length.The children will be bringing home their Race for Recall sheets. They should practice those time tables they are unsure of throughout the week to access the next level. Please encourage your children to log on to time table rock stars and other maths links which might be added to the Google classroom for homework. With practice the children gain confidence and deepen their understanding of methods.
In Science, we are starting to look at plants: naming the different part of plants, looking at their functions and how they reproduce. We will be naming some rivers in Britain and looking at the parts and their importance in Geography. We will be using this knowledge in our English lessons to explore conservation. In art, we will be creating river inspired pictures and looking at use of colour and reflection to create real life like rivers.
Please remember to look at Google classroom for homework.
PE days will be confirmed by Parent Mail.
