Yabba-dabba-doo!

This half term, we will be taking part in a Historical study focusing on the Stone Age. We will be visiting Butser Farm to start our topic where we will experience how they would have lived in the Stone Age.

Our ICT work will involve using stop motion animation software to create a short clip of our own. In Art we will be creating clay jewellery ready to share with our parents at our Fabulous Finish!

It will be a busy half term!

Maths

In Maths we will begin the half term focusing on 3D shapes, their properties and their nets.

We will then be focusing on more efficient methods to add and subtract larger numbers.

 

At home, please practice counting in tens and hundreds. Also it would be beneficial to practice adding and subtracting smaller numbers mentally.

Guided Reading

Our book study this half term is ‘Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura.

 

English

This half term we will begin with writing explanation texts, followed by diary writing and detailed descriptions of settings.

In our weekly ‘Exciting Writing’ sessions, we are beginning to identify the features needed for different genres and are choosing our own targets for writing.

There are two lots of homework every week - Maths and English.

 

Maths is set on a Monday, due in on Thursday.

We really appreciate the support you can give your child to help them with their homework, spellings and to hear them read regularly.

Reminders

 

Our PE sessions are on a Monday and a Thursday. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on these days. You may also want to include trousers and a long sleeved top for your child's outdoor session as we move into the colder months.

 

Please remember to send a water bottle into school for your child to use during lesson times as it is important to help us learn.
