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.
This half term we will be reading our pathways to write book, Star of Fear, Star of Hope by Jo Hoestlandt producing a fiction story with a flashback from another character's point of view.
Below are the areas of maths that we will be covering this half term:
Mental and written methods for multiplication and division.
Problem solving and reasoning.
Geometry- Position and Direction.
Science - Are humans still evolving?
Children will examine evolution and inheritance. They will recognise that living things produce offspring of the same kind but vary and are not identical to their parents, identify how animals and plants have adapted over time to suit their environment in different ways and that fossils provide information about living things that inhabited the Earth millions of years ago,
Children will explore the geography of the UK with a focus on Liverpool City Centre. They will reasearch what, exactly, is meant by the UK and GB. They will deepen their knowledge of key topographical and human features in the UK's countries. They will focus on Liverpool and develop their map and fieldwork skills to identify recent changes to the city. They will also identify changes created as a result of The Blitz.
Our Christian value this half term is hope.
How Christians prepare for Christmas.
