Our Big Question
Our big question this half-term is 'Does Adversity Make Us Stronger?' In geography we will be learning about mountains, volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis and extreme weather. In English we will be writing poetry, non-chronological reports and adventure stories. As part of our learning we will be visiting Lea Green to undertake some challenging outdoor adventurous activities and face some adversity ourselves!
You can find details of what we will be learning in other subjects in our termly curriculum letters.
Pupils will receive homework every Friday:
Spellings on Spelling Shed
Maths task set on My Maths
Times Tables Rock Stars
Homework needs to be completed by the following Thursday when this will be checked online, and dojo points will be awarded.
Spelling is a focus this term. The children will receive a new set of spelling words each week (these will be sent home via dojo for your reference). Please encourage your child to use the games on Spelling Shed to help them learn their spellings! They will be tested on these each Friday. We will also be focusing on common exception / tricky words in class. If you would like a copy of these to use at home, please ask!
Children are expected to read at home at least 4 times a week. Please record each time your child reads in their reading diary so dojo points can be awarded. Our accelerated reader programme is now up and running so the children can earn points for each book they read to win prizes for their efforts!
