  • Our topic this term is the Tudors and we will be learning all about this fascinating time in history.

    Literacy

    This term we are going to start with a book study on Kensuke’s Kingdom where we will develop our Reading Compression skills as well as using it as a stimulus for a range of writing genres including extended narratives and non-chronological reports. Later in the term we will focus on developing our grammatical knowledge as well as writing explanations and looking at different forms of persuasive writing, including how to structure and present a persuasive letter.

    Maths

    We will look to develop our skills using the four operations, developing our ability to select the most appropriate method for a given context. We will look to apply the maths we have learnt to solve problems and make sure we are confident when answering questions with a real life context.

    Other Subjects

    RE – We will be taking part in Bible Explore with Mrs Sinclair and will learn about the stories in the Old Testament.

    Science – We will be focusing on two areas during the summer term; Living Things and Their Habitats and Properties and Changes of Materials.

    History – This is our main focus this term and we will be looking at putting events in context and looking to see what links we can make to the world around us.

    Art and DT– The class will have a session with Mrs Parrett each week where they will be working to develop a range of DT and artistic skills.

    ICT – We will be using our data skills to create useful spreadsheets, whilst also creating historical multimedia projects.

    PE – Across our weekly PE sessions, we will be building towards our annual Sports Day event, developing key skills linked to Athletics. We will also use Real PE as well as going swimming every Monday.

    Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) – Our new theme is called ‘Relationships’. This unit of work will explore how to establish and maintain positive relationships with others, as well as making amends when things go wrong. In addition, the second half of the term will be focused on transition arrangements as the children prepare to move into a new year group.

    Other Information

    Our PE days will now be on a Tuesday with Adriano, a Thursday with me, and a swimming session on a Monday. It is important that the children always have appropriate PE kit in school so we can take advantage of additional sessions that come up – including Yoga every other Friday (27/4, 11/5, 25/5 and 15/6).

    What you can do to help.

    Please hear your child read or read with them on a daily basis, whether it is a school book, library book, comic or an online text. It can be helpful to talk to them about what we have been studying in school, whilst also researching any subjects or topics that have really captured their imagination. The children can continue to use their TT Rockstars and Prodigy log in details to support their maths work.
