This is what is happening in term 6
Dear Pupils, Parents and Guardians,
This term we will be focusing on Chocolate! Within Literacy we will be focusing on Roald Dahl’s ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’, linking the story to our literacy and in our writing. As a class we will be learning about the origin and history of chocolate, what chocolate is used for around the world, how chocolate is created as well as looking at Fairtrade.
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 for reading with your child would be fantastic, as well as times tables and spelling practice.
Within Maths, Hawks class will be focusing on time, statistics, position and direction as well as the properties of shape. 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 revolve around Electricity, we will explore circuits, constructing a simple series electrical circuit, identifying and naming its basic parts, including cells, wires, bulbs, switches and buzzers, uses of electricity and currents.
PE has changed this term and will now be on Tuesday morning with Mr. Hayes and Wednesday afternoon with myself, so full kits will be needed on these days. Please note, children with earrings need to remove them prior to PE due to health and safety.
A homework grid will be sent out with a variety of activities to be completed. As usual the children collectively came up with ideas for their own homework and what they would like to do outside of school learning. They were all happy with the ideas suggested and I look forward to seeing their finished work. Each task will be worth dojo points. Tasks can either be handed in weekly or as a whole at the end of the term.
If you have any queries or questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am at the gate most days after school or if not please leave a message at the office or a note with your child to give to me.
I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching all of your children this year and look forward to having an enjoyable final term together.
Mr Hart and Mr Hayes
