This half term, we will be studying growing plants with a focus on growing vegetables in our school allotment. We will talk about edible and non-edible parts of plants, classify fruits and vegetables, learn about germination and hopefully grow our own vegetables ready to harvest at the end of term. We hope you have already started thinking about growing plants by taking part in our 'Cress Head' Easter homework.
In Maths we will begin the half term focusing on identifying lines of symmetry in 2D shapes.
We will then be focusing on the different angles within shapes and adding and subtracting fractions.
At home, please continue to practice your child's target times tables to support us with our fraction work and with moving towards more efficient methods in multiplication and division.
This half term we will be writing diaries from the point of view of a bumble bee, linking to our topic work.
In our weekly ‘Exciting Writing’ sessions, we are continuing to identify the features needed for different genres and are choosing our own targets for writing.
Our Guided Reading sessions this half term will begin with a study of non-fiction texts linked to our topic. We will think about the layout and content features to help us within our own writing.
There are two lots of homework every week - Maths and English.
Maths is set on a Monday, due in on Thursday.
English is set on a Thursday, due in on Monday.
Spellings are set on a Monday for a test the following Monday.
We really appreciate the support you can give your child to help them with their homework, spellings and to hear them read regularly.
Our PE sessions are on a Monday and a Friday. 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.
