It is really exciting to be back at school and we have lots of new things to learn.
Here is what we will be learning about this term.
English - We will be reading the novel Stig of the Dump by Clive King and doing lots of writing and activities based on this children's classic.
Maths - We will be looking at recapping on addition and subtraction methods and using them with money and measures. Your child will be taking part in the Multiplication Check In June 2021. It is very important that they practice their times tables nightly. We will be completing weekly times tables tests as well as working on TT Rockstars. Please support your child in practising!
History/Geography -The first half term our History unit will be The Stone Age to the Iron Age. After half term we will be learning about Volcanoes.
Science - Our topic this half term is rocks and soils. After half term we will be learning about Volcanoes.
Music - We will be doing work based on different pieces of classical music this term.
Art/DT - We will be doing artwork linked to fossils and will produce our own printing. After half term we will make our own Volcanoes in DT.
