Children can select their own reading book from our class or whole school library. Children will be heard read as often as possible in school but we encourage them to read a few pages every night at home. Please record when your child has read to you in their reading record. The children also have access to ReadingPlus, we would like for the children to aim to access this for 5 minutes each weekday evening and they will be given time in school, regular use of this site will give them the opportunity to extend their understanding of different types of text, vocabulary and comprehension.
Please make sure your child brings in their reading record and reading books to school everyday.
Our English lessons are based on a half termly book.
To begin this half term we will be reading a book in keeping with our whole school topic, An Eagle in the Snow by Michael Morpurgo.
We will then begin to look at our pathways to write book, Can we Save the Tiger? producing a hybrid text which will include information and explanation.
Below are the areas of maths that we will be covering this half term:
•Mental and written methods for addition and subtraction.
•Mental and written methods for multiplication and division.
•Problem solving and reasoning.
Science - Why is the heart the most important pump in the body?
Children will examine the circulatory system, identifying its main parts, describing the functions of the heart and blood, describing the ways in which the nutrients and water are transported within the human body and recognising the impact of diet and exercise on the way the body functions.
Humanities- Can any war be justified?
Children will travel back in time to learn about the eevents that led to the outbreak of the First World War, what life was like for soldiers in the trenches, World War I poetry and the importance of Remembrance Day.
