Here we are in the summer term! We are already enjoying the sunshine at last. Let’s hope it stays dry and gets much warmer. Once again we have a busy term ahead.
In Literacy at the moment we are doing descriptive and explanation writing. However later this term we will start to read ‘Charlotte’s Web’. The children will carry out many writing activities as we read the book. We will also do some poetry work. Once a week, grammar and comprehension work will also continue.
In Reading, children are continuing to read books from school and from the local library. It’s pleasing to see how much they are enjoying their favourite books. In Guided Reading sessions the children are encouraged to develop their comprehension and inference skills. Reading is vital for the children to access all parts of the curriculum so please make sure your child reads every day.
In Maths we are developing mental maths and answering questions skills. The children find it difficult to instantly recall multiplication and division facts. Please practise these regularly at home but in a ‘fun’ way. We will continue with number work, shape and space, measures, calculations and problem solving.
In Science we are learning about Magnets and Springs. The children will carry out several investigations and find out many facts.
In History we are learning about the Aztecs. This is our class Topic. The children are very curious and eager to find out about different aspects of the Aztecs. We will be carrying out many activities as well as tasting food from Mexico.
In PE our topics this term are games and athletics. The children will need their trainers as these activities will be done outside.
In RE we will be learning about Water of life, Creation stories , St. Georges Day and Eid.
Please make sure your child wears school uniform and brings his/her PE kit in on the required day. Homework is given out as usual on Friday and needs to be completed by Wednesday. Sameena and myself will let you know of any trips in advance.
Let’s hope for a great term!
