We are looking forward to getting settled back into a full timetable of Maths, English, Guided Reading and Phonics on a daily basis.
This term our topic is Climate Zones, which will include a trip to Whinlatter. We are going to be focusing on hockey and then tennis in our PE lessons with a focus on hand eye coordination as well as spatial awareness. Please ensure your child has a PE kit in school throughout the week!
We have started a new maths scheme called Maths No Problem which involves using lots of practical methods and abstract resources to aid the children's understanding of maths. Children use a greater number of resources and are improving their mathematical vocabulary daily.
In English we will be revising previous learning on writing answers to reading comprehensions in a full sentences and not starting our answers with ' because'. We will be reading 'The Ice Palace' by Robert Swindells and also having specific focus weeks such as Fair trade Fortnight and Health and Fitness week.
The children will also be given logins to Learning Beck, these logins can be found on your child's reading diary. On Learning Beck children can play on many different educational games. Your child will also have a login for Times Table Rockstars to enable to be a whizz at their tables.
