Teacher: Mrs Peterson/Miss Abbott
Now that everyone is back in school full time, we are able to deliver day-to-day learning in the classroom and on school grounds!
For anyone that needs to self-isolate but is not unwell, we will provide individual tasks via Teams as we did in the autumn term, so please check there for tasks to complete and to communicate with class teacher for feedback on learning and to keep you up to date with what's going on in class.
We are also going to be posting the weekly spellings on the class Teams page as well as other resources and links that can help with learning, so keep checking back on those pages for anything new.
Contact class teachers if you have any questions.
The topic for the second half of summer term is.........
Let's Plant It!
This is another science and technology based topic, in which we be focusing on plants and how they live and grow. We will investigate plants in our local area and learn all about the parts of different plants. The second part of the topic will involve children looking at garden obelisks and then working on designs for their own. We are excited to find out more about growing food and where our food comes from. If any of you grow any food at home, we'd love to hear about it!
This half term, we are focusing mainly on one key text:
Each week, we will look at different parts of the text and will then focus on a key aspect or style of writing. There will be a mixture of fiction and non-fiction writing to learn about and complete. There will also be a weekly grammar or punctuation task to make sure children are using these key skills and also a reading comprehension exercise, which may focus on a different text.
Every week, we will also complete a 'Pobble Write' exercise. This is an opportunity for children to write completely independently in whichever style they choose, based on a picture from the Pobble365 website. Children should use these shorter sessions to really show off their writing skills and everything they have learnt so far!
Maths and Times Tables
Maths will continue to follow the White Rose units. We are starting the term with some learning on properties of 2D and 3D shapes and then moving on to position and direction.
Don't forget to log in to Times Table Rock Stars (click here) at home and practise your tables as much as you can too. The more points you earn, the more rock star accessories you can buy for your character!
Each Friday, we will post a new set of spellings on TEAMS to work on with a Powerpoint to introduce the spelling pattern for the week. Every day, children will complete an activity linked to the spellings for that week and these will then be tested on a Thursday. You can also find the spelling lists below.
India's PE days are a Monday and Thursday. Monday is outdoor PE and Thursday is indoor PE. Children should come to school in their PE kits. Please ensure that children have suitable outdoor kit (jumper or jacket). Tracksuits should be plain and dark in colour. Let us know if you need any help finding suitable PE kit.
Our Prehistory Timeline
Some of the children in school contributed to this brilliant timeline, which shows our learning as 'historians' over the last half term. Really well done, everybody!
