Our Autumn term is always an exciting one, culminating in our annual Christmas service at Trinity Church.
More details of this will follow shortly.
Texts studied this term include The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling. Our teaching and learning is based on a range of activities centred on the new primary curriculum. Activities include daily whole class reading, research skills, listening and discussing and drama as well as grammar, punctuation and spelling.
This term, there will be a heavy focus on place value and calculation. In addition to this, we will be spending time during our Maths lessons on developing rapid times tables recall up to 12 x 12, and the corresponding division facts. Please practise these at home as much as possible (using Times Tables Rockstars if you have access to the internet through a laptop, computer, tablet or smart phone).
Topics of study for the Autumn term will include electricity and sound. Wherever possible the focus will be on practical investigations and developing scientific enquiry.
Key information for the term -
4PO - every other Wednesday
4C - every other Wednesday
4R - every other Friday
Tuesday afternoon - outdoor games. Please ensure that trainers and outdoor kit are in school. Girls should also have socks to change into if they are wearing tights.
Homework will be set for Maths and spelling and is due in on a Monday.
During the year, we aim to encourage the children to immerse themselves in reading good quality texts for pleasure and will provide children with suggested books to read. We are asking the children to read five times independently at home for homework. We ask for your support by signing to validate this. It would be fantastic if you could, on occasions, discuss what they are reading. There will also be reading challenges set throughout the year so please keep an eye out for these.
