Welcome to the summer term. It is lovely to have the children back in school and they are clearly thrilled to be back.
PE ready days are still on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. We will be concentrating on RealPE (Sporty games and athletic challenges) on Tuesdays and Rounders on Thursdays.
We are focusing on our times tables, children will have two times table booklets, one for in school and another for at home. Please could one page be completed daily. Froggy maths will also be tested on a Wednesday. Please practice with your child throughout the week. Times table knowledge is vital for the maths curriculum.
Please remember to name your child’s jumpers. Children need a named water bottle and waterproof coat with them in school everyday as, due to our new routines, the children will be required to go outside in all weathers.
In English this term we will be starting with Hercules and writing our own story based on Greek mythology.
In Maths this term, we will be developing our knowledge and understanding in fractions and decimals. It is essential that children are actively working on their rapid recall of their times tables throughout the year as this will help them in all areas of the subject.
During the first half term our science topic will be living things and habitats. We will be looking at different types of animals and how scientists classify different animals and living things. We will also investigate animals habitats. We have already had some thrilling science lessons!
Topic this term will be ‘The Groovy Greeks’. Within the topic we will be investigating Greek mythology and what life was like as an ancient Greek.
Our art and design will be topic related.
