We will be working on grammar, punctuation, spelling and handwriting. We will also be working on our story writing skills, learning how to write stories with familiar settings. The children will also be looking at some non-fiction books linked to our topic on Wild Weather. the children will be tested weekly on their spellings.
The children will be learning place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and measures - length, mass and volume. The children will be tested weekly on times tables and will have the opportunity to go on Times Tables Rock stars.
PE is on Tuesday and Wednesday. PE kit must be worn on those days and should be named. If any child does not have their PE kit in school they will be required to wear spare kit. PE kits should be brought in on Monday and taken home on Friday. Children will need trainers for outside PE. Children will be taught PE by a PE specialist this term.
All homework is on the homework cards that your children bring home. This will be in the form of times tables and spellings to learn for tests on Friday. Homework cards will show the dates of all tests. Children also have optional homework tasks usually linked to their topic or science. There is also a space for you to fill in any `wow` activities that your child may have done at home. These can earn your child extra house points! If you have any questions about homework please feel free to ask.
Your child needs to bring a pencil case, reading book and reading record every day to school. Can you please ensure your child has a bottle of water for use in the classroom. (Juice is allowed with a packed lunch only.) Library books need to be brought in everyday as the children may need to do a quiz and to change them as these will be Accelerated Reader books. Children must ensure they bring their signed homework cards and reading records in on Friday to be checked. If you lose a reading record, you can get a replacement from the school office for a small fee. If you lose a homework card, please feel free to download a copy from this page or come and see me.
