Our Curriculum

 

English

In English, we will be learning about the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings this half term. Our first text will be a non-fiction information text on the Anglo Saxons. Our grammar work for this unit, will focus on using organisational devices to structure our writing. After this, we will be reading a fictional text on Jotun's journey discovering the Vikings. Our focus for our writing during that unit will be improving our vocabulary for setting and characters.

 

Maths

In Maths, we are studying multiplication and division. This term, we will be learning how to multiply using the column method and divide using the bus stop method. The most important part of multiplication and division is knowing your times tables, so please practice TTRS at home as often as possible.

 

R.E.

In RE, our theme is the Eucharist. We will be learning about the steps involved in this holy sacrament. 

 

Topic

In History, we will be learning about what life was like for the Anglo Saxons in terms of culture. We will also be exploring the Vikings, including their famous long ships and raids on Briton.

 

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.
