Topic

In this unit, the children are future scientists who have to deal with the big questions concerning the

Earth and our place in space. Some people now believe that the colonisation of space is essential for

humanity’s long-term survival. Could the Moon be a source of clean energy, and could Mars be our future

home? Your class are going to find out!

English

English:

Liam is too big for his boots. And his football strip. And his school blazer. But being super-sized height-wise has its advantages: he's the only eleven-year-old to ever ride the G-force-defying Cosmic rollercoaster – or to be offered the chance to drive a Porsche. Long-legged Liam makes a giant leap for boy-kind by competing with a group of adults for the chance to go into space. Is Liam the best boy for the job? Sometimes being big isn't all about being a grown-up...

 

We will be using the wonderful Cosmic as a vehicle to deliver our English curriculum for the half-term.  We will be teaching a range of grammar and punctuation, and writing in a variety of styles.  Our writing will also be supplemented by independent Pobble writing- writing based around an inspiring image- and lessons on spelling and handwriting.

Maths:

Our maths curriculum follows the White Rose scheme of learning.  These half-term we will be looking at place value, and the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Home Learning:

Please focus on the following for home learning:

-Reading: aim for daily, for around twenty minutes.  Remember to discuss the reading with your child.  Reading feeds so widely into all learning so please make this a priority!

-Times tables: daily, for around ten minutes.  Focus on the tables you find trickiest, and make sure you include division facts too.  

-Spelling: these will be sent home weekly and tested in class.  Practise them accurately, using joined up handwriting if you can as this supports the learning process.  Spellings will also be put on Teams.

 

Your child may also be sent home with some optional Science home learning each week.

Healthy Snack

We are having a big push on healthy snacks for the children.  Please send your child in with fruit or vegetables only.

Other information:

Check the timetable above for PE days.  Remember that your child should be sent to school in PE kit on these days.

Over the coming weeks, your child will receive their log ins for timestable rockstars and Myon.co.uk (our new reading tool).  Please remember to use this site as there is a vast online library of amazing books.  Children should also complete- if possible- the book quiz for any books that they complete.
