Topic

 

Topic - Animals & Evolution

 

Our topic will be science based this half term, looking at animals and evolution.  We will look at animal classification, how they suit their environment, evolution and the big bang.  It will link to writing biographies in English and looking at famous scientists.

 

Topic - WWI

 

After half term we will then be looking at world war 1.  Looking at its history.  In English we will read The War Horse by Michael Morpurgo and the children are very keen to write about animals in the war.

 

Topic - The Maya

We have had a great time looking at The Maya, learning about the ancient civilisation and their customs.  I'm sure the learning we did on rituals and sacrifice will be remembered for a long time.

Key Information

Timetable

PE
PE will be on Mondays with Mrs Churchard (aka Miss Bidnell) and Mr McDonnell.

Children will need suitable kit and footwear for indoor and outdoor sessions every week.

As the  weather can be colder at this time of year, please ensure warm kit is available.

Kit will be kept in the lockers, along with school bags and coats, unless wet.

Homework

Homework will be set  weekly, on a Thursday, for maths, English and spellings (on Wednesdays).

Additionally, there will be topic homework which will usually be in the form of a project and may be set over several weeks rather than a new task weekly.

 

Daily 5 in Owls

Please encourage your child to spend time each day (5 minutes on each) on:

  • spellings - The children may need support with learning the meanings as well as how to spell them
  • TT Rockstars times tables - to build up speed and fluency
  • reading - completing their reading record (We also expect children to read and discuss their books with an adult weekly

 

Friday afternoons are music with Mrs Churchard for the first half term, then art with Mrs Stiles.
