Topic: Amazing Ancient Ancestors
This term, we have a history-based topic where we will be learning about the Ancient Mayan Civilization. Please encourage your child to do their own research and bring their findings into school.
We will be covering various writing styles, including revisiting fiction genres and arguments and looking at narrative and plays as well as non-fiction texts and poetry.
Please help at home by giving your child access to the wide range of reading opportunities that can be found, such as: newspapers, leaflets, instructions, as well as their personal reading book.
Our main focus this term will be preparing for the SATs. As before, there will be daily guided reading and grammar, punctuation and spelling sessions in addition to daily literacy lessons. Please ask your child about their Log Books in which they keep a record of the spellings that they find the trickiest each week.
We will be covering a broad range of numeracy areas including shape and space, data handling, number and problem solving.
Remember to see our website for any methods that you can help your child with at home, and the full maths policy is also available to download.
Your child will take a weekly timed mental arithmetic test. Please help them to learn their times tables alongside reinforcing maths in everyday life, such as: telling the time and reading timetables, counting money and reading scales.
