During our English we shall be working from books and short films centered all around Space! This shall include reading 'Where Once We Stood' by Christopher Riley who looks at accounts of twelve people who have stood on the moon. This links well with our Science focus this term of Earth and Space!
Within our Geography this term we will be discovering all about the country Brazil, and comparing it to the United Kingdom. This links really closely with our Guided Reading book this term 'The Explorers' by Katherine Rundell, where four children find themselves in the Amazon rainforest and through adventure and exploration have to survive!
During our P.E. lessons on Tuesdays we are continuing working with Synergy having a great time developing our coordination and stamina through Boxercise sessions! On Wednesdays our P.E focus will be Gymnastics allowing us to develop our balance and control.
Please make sure your child has a named P.E top, shorts (or jogging bottoms) with suitable footwear such as plimsolls or trainers.
Homework shall continue to be set and due back every week on Mondays. Homework consists of School Chat, a variety of questions to spark conversation with your children about what they have been learning over the week! Within homework folders there is also a reading record, this for your child to fill in about any books they are reading, their likes/dislikes or a summary of the story.
Please regularly allow your child to practise on Times Table Rockstars and Spelling Shed, new spellings are released weekly on Wednesdays after learning the new pattern in school.
You child's personal logins to access these are in the front cover of their reading records.
