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, Skychasers by Emma Carroll. Our writing outcome is to write an adventure story, including narrative from different viewpoints..
Below are the areas of maths that we will be covering this half term:

Problem solving and reasoning.
Science - Can you light up a stage?
The children will develop their knowledge of key light phenomena, centred around transparencies, lenses and coloured light.
The children will ask the question, what do we know about the world, in statistics and in the news? Using current key issues in the news related to world geography, events and the environment we will explore where to find information, what infographics, data and statistics can tell us about the current issue and that some information can be misleading.
Our Christian value this half term is courage.
