This term we are going to start with a book study on Who Let the Gods Out where we will develop our compression skills as well as using it as a stimulus for a range of writing (including extended myths and legends). Later in the term we will focus on developing our grammatical knowledge as well as writing explanations and making sure we are confident using a range of punctuation and sentence openers.
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. This term we will also focus on fractions and time related problems.
Science – We will be focusing on two areas during the summer term; Living Things and Their Habitats and Properties and Changes of Materials.
History and Geography – We will link our work in these areas focusing on rivers. We will learn about the water cycle and the features of rivers and also how rivers have impacted on how cities have developed over time.
Art and DT – we will continue to look at a range of artists, starting with Monet and his water lilies.
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 focus on coordination and movement to develop our core skills.
Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) – This term we will be thinking about Equality and Generosity. We will also be thinking about how we can develop our learning skills and the importance of being resilient when faced with challenges. 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.
I will be setting homework each week on Teams – it will be set on Friday and be due in the following Wednesday.
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.
