Welcome To The 2020 Summer Term!
Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping well and safe. This is a very strange time and I feel we all need to stay positive. We will all be back at school when it is safe to do so. In the mean time try to keep yourself busy, it makes the time pass faster. I am missing you all terribly and can't wait to see your smiling faces soon. Some ideas you could do are;
* Joe Wicks - Keep active with Joe, a 30 minutes workout every morning on you tube.
If you haven't already done so, please go and collect your child's second learning pack from the front entrance at school.
we will be looking at grammar, adjectives, nouns, verbs, adverbs. We will also be writing in a variety of genres, imaginative writing, explanation writing, letter writing, poetry writing and report writing. We will also be looking at fronted adverbials, expanded noun phrases, subordinate clauses and conjunctions. We will be carrying out daily handwriting activities and looking at letter formation. All the children are aiming to achieve pen by the end of the year, if they are consistent with their handwriting and presentation of all work.

we will be recapping the 4 rules, fractions and time. We will also be learning about measuring using different scales, volume, capacity, distance, time, money, weight and height. Can you convert units to different measures. We will also be learning about decimals, how they link to whole numbers and fractions. How to multiply and divide decimals by 10 and 100. You will also be learning how to use protractors to measure and draw angles accurately.
Please support your child by helping them to learn the times tables at home. If your child knows their times tables they will find all aspects of maths easier. Times tables are crucial for fractions, division and problem solving work.
we will be learning about plants, rocks and soils. The course content for these 2 topics are;
Plants - How they grow, what they need to stay healthy, different parts of a plant, different plants, why different plants grow in different seasons, photosynthesis, grow sun flowers and broad beans. How plants absorb water and nutrients.
Rocks and Soils - Different types of rocks and soils, where they can be found, which material is best for building with & why; which type of soil is best for building on and planting in. This topic also links with our history topic on Stone Age.
we will be learning about The Stone Age; when it was, where people lived, animals around in the stone age, clothing, diet, cave painting and art work. We will also be comparing our finding to life today. We will also be reading a book called 'Stone Age Boy' and 'Stig of the Dump'.
