This is what is happening in term 5
Dear Pupils, Parents and Guardians,
This term we will be focusing on ‘Rivers and Myst’. Within Literacy we will be using a stimulus called ‘Myst'’ to develop our creative writing. This has been known to be very successful when used in primary schools to develop creative writing in a generation where technology is at the forefront of their lives. The children don't play the game, but we as a whole class (adults in control) navigate through certain aspects (settings/puzzles) of the game on the big screen stopping to comment, discuss and suggest ideas with the aim for the children to eventually write their own mystery story to be turned into an E-book.
Throughout the upcoming year, there will be a daily focus on spelling, punctuation, and grammar (SPAG), as well as developing a love of reading. Any opportunities at home to continue reading with your child would be fantastic, as well as times tables and spelling practice.
Within Maths, Hawks class will be focusing on writing decimals, comparing decimals and understanding tenths and hundredths. We will also be looking at money and time. Pupils will be focusing on not only the importance of procedural understanding but how to apply this knowledge to a range of reasoning and fluency questions.
As well as this, Science will be focusing on the water cycle and the different stages linked within it before leading into our final topic of the year, States of Matter!
PE will be on a Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon, so PE kit should be worn into school instead of School Uniform on these days. Please note, children with earrings need to remove them prior to PE due to health and safety.
On Tuesdays during the term we we will continue to have an external music teacher coming to to demonstrate and teach us how to play the Ukulele.
A homework grid will be handed out this term with a variety of activities to be completed linked with our topics Rivers and Myst.
If you have any queries or questions please do not hesitate to contact either of us on the email addresses above, leave a message at the office or a note with your child to give to me.
