During our English we are going to be looking at a variety of novels, which have a focus of a mythical or magical element! We shall be then creating our own narratives inspired by these texts, where we can write a gripping and fascinating story.
In our History lessons we are studying the Ancient Greeks, this coincides well with our storytelling theme for the term as we shall be delving deep by learning all about Greek Gods, Goddess' and mythical beings!
In Science, taking us all the way to Easter, we are going to develop our understanding of forces. We shall be using lots of experiments to investigate and deepen our knowledge all around gravity, air resistance, water resistance, friction and lots more!
P.E. lessons have now changed days, we shall be having P.E. on Monday afternoons and Wednesday mornings.
Our P.E. lessons on Mondays are being taught by our P.E Apprentice Mr Andrews, with him we are developing our knowledge of the racket sport, badminton, by the end of this term we shall be able to play a game of badminton with our peers!
On Wednesdays P.E. will focus on dance, we shall be using unity, movement and rhythm to develop dance routines, of different styles to pieces of music.
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.
