Our Curriculum

 

English

In English, we will be learning about our local area. We will be focusing on the History of Morecambe and how this has changed over time from being a small fishing village to a thriving tourist town. In our grammar work, we will be focusing on key vocabulary and including this in our own non-fiction writing about Morecambe's past.

 

Maths

In Maths, our first unit will be on place value. As part of this, we will be learning how to partition (split up) numbers, order and compare numbers, also how to round numbers to the nearest ten, hundred and thousand. To practice learning about these at home, please see set tasks on Mathletics.

 

R.E.

In RE, our theme will be the big family of God. We will be learning about bible stories using this theme, beginning with the life of Abraham.

 

Topic

In our History unit, we will be learning about Morecambe's 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.

 

Music

On Wednesday mornings, we will be playing our brass instruments. Please remember to bring your brass instruments for our music lessons.

 

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.
