Our Curriculum

 

English

In English, we have been learning about the History of our local area. This half term, we will begin to look into our wider local History, studying Lancaster's Trading Past. In our grammar work, we will be focusing on using fronted adverbials to make the verbs in our sentences more specific.

 

Maths

In Maths, we are studying addition and subtraction. This term, we will be learning how to add and subtract numbers up to 4 digits, with and without exchanging across place value columns. To practice learning about these at home, please see set tasks on Mathletics.

 

R.E.

In RE, our theme is the Sacrament of Confirmation. We will be looking at the symbols involved in the steps of this sacrament and how many can also be seen in David's anointing as king and in the first Pentecost. 

 

Topic

In our History unit, we will be learning about our local past. If you have any old photographs at home that include Morecambe's history, e.g. a photo taken outside of one of Morecambe's landmark buildings like the Winter Gradens, please feel free to bring this into school for us to borrow.

 

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.
