Our Curriculum

 

English

In English, our theme for this half term is 'Water, Water Everywhere'. We will be learning about the steps in the water cycle, the journey of a river and rising sea levels. Our reading focus will be retrieving information to use as evidence for our answers. Our main grammar focus will be on using fronted adverbials to add detail to our sentences and to give the reader more information. We will then be applying these fronted adverbials into our non-fiction writing.

 

Maths

In Maths, we are studying fractions. This term, we will be learning how to represent fractions in different ways, find equivalent fractions and also how to add and subtract fractions.

In June, we will be taking the optional times tables test so please practice TTRS at home as often as possible.

 

R.E.

In RE, our theme is Pentecost. We will be learning about the symbols used to represent the Holy Spirit. 

 

Topic

In Geography and Science, we will be exploring how water travels and changes state. 

 

P.E.

Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school at all times. No jewellery is to be worn for PE. PE is timetabled on Thursday but may take place at other times during the week.

Homework:

One of the most important parts of homework is to talk about what we have been learning about in school. Please ask your child about what they have been learning in English and maths as often as possible.

 

Spellings:

We will have a spelling test every Friday. Please practice your weekly spellings at home to make sure you can get your best scores on these spelling tests. You can practice these using look, cover, write, check and record your practices in your homework books.
