Our literacy topic this term is ‘Macbeth’ which gives the children a great opportunity to act and perform parts of the story.
As always each day the children will be expected to complete a ‘extended writing’ task. This work helps the children to improve their speed of writing as well as their content. The children’s writing has really improved from all their practice.
After some excellent maths last term the children will be moving on to more advanced topics. Some of these will include equivalent fractions, probability and long written methods for division.
We will begin the term by looking at the body and in particular the heart. This is a topic in which the children will learn about the complex parts of the body and is a starting point for the biology lessons that will be taught in secondary school.
Similarly to last term we will continue to have our P.E. lesson at Southfields School with a specialist P.E. teacher. This has been a great opportunity for the children to learn new sport skills. Our topic this term is basketball. Children will be required to bring their P.E. kits for this session every Friday.
Homework will continue to be given out on Friday and needs to be returned by Tuesday.
Please continue to read with your child every night as it really supports them with their school work. Children who read regularly make better progress in their work through-out the year.
