Spring 1 Parent Overview and Home Learning
All things bright and beautiful.
Animals including humans
This term we are using our areas of scientific enquiry to investigate animals including humans. We will discover the changes of a human from birth to old age and investigate gestation periods of a range of mammals. Using these investigations, we will be using the results to pattern seek and draw any conclusions from the patterns we have found.
How is climate change affecting the world?
This term we are exploring the changing weather patterns that contribute to longer-term climate change and how they impact the lives of people throughout the world. We will be reflecting upon how changes to normal and usual weather conditions can have serious impacts to these people.
This term we will be exploring the work or William Morris.
Our PE lessons this half term will be on Friday, please make sure you wear PE kit in to school on these days.
The PTFA have again purchased a great times table package for the school called 'TT Rockstars'. There are lots of different areas the children could go into including the ‘Garage’ or ‘Studio’. The Garage is a training mode where they work through the tables (recommended) and the Studio is random questions up to the 12x12 times table. Ultimately, we hope this makes learning the times tables fun while they become more fluent and knowledgeable in their times table recall. They can also earn ‘coins’ to update their avatar rock star!
Home Learning will be issued at the beginning of term and consist of tasks based around English, Maths and Curiosity about or current topic. Children should aim to complete one task from each area. These can be brought in to be shared with the class when completed/ photos can be shared via their portfolios on Class Dojo. The term's spelling patterns and words will be tested on at the end of term via a dictation task.
If you have any concerns, or question, please do not hesitate to contact us. We can be reached through Class Dojo, or the school telephone number. We are usually in the playground most days after school , or from 8.30am in the morning.
