PE Kit information:
PE kit is needed on Wednesdays and Thursdays. It is important that children have trainers and warm clothing as PE will continue to be outside. They also need long hair to be tied back on these day please.
Welcome back. We are looking forward to a new term and new learning. We are incredibly proud of each and every one of the children.
This term we cover two units; one focusing on geography and the other history. We begin by looking at 'Raging Water' and learning about different bodies of water around the world. We go into detail on rivers and how they are formed. After half term we move on to the Vikings, learning all about what life was like during that period. This will also be included in aspects of the homework so look out for that.
We continue to enjoy our science lessons, the range of understanding but also linking the learning to all other areas of life and education has been amazing. This term our unit is called 'Back Stage at The Castle'. It is going to be a very interesting term of work.
In English we will be working on a book called 'Titanic Detective Agency' which is about a young girl aboard The Titanic. The children will learn much of the history and use this to enhance their inference and writing. Many skills will be taught and developed through this text as well as using a range of genres for our writing.
Maths, will begin with perimeter and area then move through a range of skills. Children will be taught new concepts based on their prior learning. We will then be able to progress through the skills needed to allow them to achieve.
PE for 4VT will be on a Wednesday afternoon and a Thursday morning. We will be having football with a coaches on Wednesday's, we are very lucky. They will be working on the skills of the game as well as covering other areas on personal development. On Thursday, they will continue to develop these skills and put them into practice with Mrs Shirtcliffe. Please remember that for now, children need to be coming to school in their PE kit on those days. They are welcome to wear a tracksuit on top to keep warm.
Homework will be set within the first full week and children need to aim to achieve the points set. Once they have managed this, they can hand in their homework. There is no need for homework to be handed in every week, just once the points have been achieved or by the date given.
Spellings will be given every week for the children to learn, these will be worked on and tested in class.
Reading is encouraged at every opportunity and children can earn reading award tickets for each book they read and are able to discuss. These tickets are collected and then one is picked out at the end of term to receive the book token.
Please check the class page regularly as we will share information, work and photos.
Please note: At the leisure centre is closed, swimming will not be happening on a Thursday, however the children will still need to be in PE kit as they will still have PE.
