What are we learning about in Term 5?
Our topic for term 5 is 'Does the punishment fit the crime?'. We will be exploring all things crime and punishment related by journing back in time through history. In English we will reading the famous narrative poem 'The Highway Man'; exploring features of poetry, analysing and identifying the characters and storyline, creating wanted posters and writing diary entries. We will also be studying a non fiction genre of discussion and persuasion by looking at crime in a real life context. In our Topic lessons, we will be learning about crime and punishment through the ages and linking our DT and Science topic by creating an alarm system. What an exciting topic this term!
The Term 5 class newsletter can be found further down the page under the 'Newsletter' section to find out more about what we will be doing in other subject areas.
Homework will consist of a multiple choice grid with many different types of activities to choose from which are all based around our topic. The children will be responsible for completing a task each week and recording it in the home learning book. Photographs or any documents can be stuck into books and any models etc can be brought into school to be presented to the rest of the class if they wish.
For Maths home learning, the children have access to Times Tables Rock Stars and Prodigy, of which the login information can be found in their reading record. The children also have access to Spelling Shed to help them practise their spellings which are sent home weekly.
Remember to keep up with the reading at home in order to get through as many books as possible on the Accelerated Reader scheme and accrue the number of points needed for the term.
Home learning may also be supplemented from time to time with other activities to reinforce learning we do in class.
All homework will be awarded housepoints as well as housepoints given for reading quizzes. These will be added to each child's termly acrual in class to work towards a prize.
Any help and support given with home learning is greatly received. Thank you for your continued support.
