Mrs Althorpe and I would like to welcome you to the start of a new academic year. Within this leaflet you will find out about the themes we will cover up until November. 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 year, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Theme-We have some exciting themes this year and are starting off with " Who is The Shang Dynasty?" Children will find out what the Bronze Age was like in China, consulting ancient history books and archaeological finds to compare evidence and draw conclusions about a wide range of features.

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 – The children will learn about Healthy bodies. We will learn how to keep our bodies healthy by learning all about nutrition, the importance of exercise,  hearts and more. We will investigate how water and nutrients are transported in the circulatory system and recognise the impact of diet, exercise, drugs and lifestyle on how our bodies function.

PE – Swimming ( every Wednesday).

MUSIC We will be exploring different sounds as well as rhythmic patterns. The children will listen to a variety of types of music, as well as learning new songs.

RE What is belief in our community?

Children will be thinking about their own beliefs as well as those of others in their local community .

ICT – Planning the creation of a mobile app.

PSHE – Go Givers

P.E.  PE is a core subject and every child is expected to take part in these lessons.  Our lessons will take place on a Thursday and Wednesday(SWIMMING).

Please ensure your child has their PE kit: black or navy shorts, plain white or blue school t-shirt and plimsolls/trainers in school for these days and that earrings have been removed . (We are not allowed to remove them.)

Reading Your child will be reading daily in class through different subjects. However, an adult will listen to your child read at least once a week.  Please ensure you listen to your child read as often as possible during the week and note in their reading record that you have done so. Encourage your child to talk about what they have read

Please ensure your child brings their reading book into school every day.

Spellings Your child will come home with a new list of spellings on a Friday which they need to practise each day.  Please encourage your child to read, sound out and write the words carefully. They will be tested on the following Friday.
