Mrs Althorpe and I would like to welcome you to the start of a new term. Within this leaflet you will find out about the themes we will cover up until July. I hope your child will have a productive and enjoyable time in my class this year. If you have any questions or queries about anything to do with your child’s time at school this term, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Theme- What is North America?- Children will discover the continent of North America and all its amazing countries, cities and landscapes , they will identify the 23 countries of North America, from the vast lands of the USA and Canada down through Central America.

Mathematics In Maths the children will read, write and order numbers. Add and subtract numbers mentally and using column methods. Know the multiplication facts for all times tables. Use units of time and relationship between them. Understand and use money notation £, p. Identify angles, lines of symmetry. Use and interpret numerical data in lists, tables and graphs to solve problems.

English The children will continue to read at their own level, and will have the opportunity to change their books daily if required. Reading checks will be carried out on a regular basis, and the skills children are developing will be reinforced throughout the curriculum. They will be encouraged to speak clearly and listen carefully to others, as well as participate in group discussions.  They will regularly share a variety of both fiction and non-fiction books.

Please continue to support your child with reading, as well as practicing spellings and doing homework at home.

Science Why do we need to know about evolution and  inheritance?

Children will be thinking about characteristics passed from one generation to the next and how species have adapted to suit their environments. It goes on to explain the process of natural selection, and how our understanding of the process of evolution has developed over time thanks to the work of scientists and palaeontologists.

ART/DT Why do we wear slippers?- Children will explore a range of slippers to see what materials are used, what different parts there are and who they were designed for. Then, move on to the hands-on lessons of designing slipper patterns and improving sewing and decorating skills. And finally, test their skills by challenging your class to design, make and evaluate their own slippers, using the skills they have developed.
