We have a very exciting topic planned for term two. As the weather is getting cooler and the nights darker we will be learning more about our wonderful world with a focus on Greenland - the largest island on earth! We will find out all about life on Greenland, the animals, how to survive and also discover famous arctic explorers. We are reading a beautiful book, First Light, by the author Rebecca Stead and using this to inspire out descriptive writing. We will discuss and debate the important topic issue of global warming and climate change.
Look out for our fashion show where we will be showcasing cold weather clothing that we have carefully designed and made. PE will give us the opportunity to represent snow sports through dance and outdoor PE will focus on invasion games.
We can't wait to start this magnificent topic!
We are very excited to be teaching this brand new topic this term! Children will be using their geography skills, using atlases to location specific locations and learning all about the human and physical features of America. We will also learn about specific locations along Route 66 and why people take this special journey! Our focus will then move to earthquakes and children will learn all about the causes and consequences of them. We can’t wait to read ‘There’s a boy in the girl’s bathroom’ during our English lessons and use this to inspire our writing.
Look out for pictures on the website updating you of our learning in lots of our subjects.
Useful Information for parents
This term, we will send out a letter detailing the whole term's homework. We ask that you support your child to return homework by the due dates specified in the letter. Homework will consist of maths and English tasks relating to learning in class. Every other week, we will set Times Tables Rockstars tasks. Don't worry if you don't have access to this at home because there will be opportunity for your child to complete this at school if necessary.
You can find a copy of the homework letter in the 'Documents' section below.
In addition to formal homework, we ask that you continue to listen to your child read on a regular basis and that you discuss what they have read with them. This will help enormously when they come to quizzing at school. We would also like your child to continue learning their times tables.
This term both classes will be doing two sessions of ourdoor PE. These will be on Tuesday and Friday. There will also be some children who will be swimming during their PE slot on Tuesday afternoons. Please look out for a letter from the office if this concerns your child.
Please could you ensure that your child has the correct kit at school on these days. Trainers rather than plimsolls are advisable as we will be on the school field whenever possible and this can get muddy.
It may be worthwhile leaving the kit at school at all times. We will make sure that it comes home at the end of term for washing or sooner if it gets particularly muddy!
