Autumn One

In English we will be reading the story 'No-Bot'. Pupils will be describing characters, story sequencing and participating in weekly VIPER sessions. Pupils will also be focusing on SPAG revision tasks. We will also be creating missing posters and using speech bubbles in our writing.  

 

Mathematics

The Rubies will be learning about place value, addition and subtraction and shape. 

The Diamonds will be learning about place value, addition and subtraction and shape. 

The Emeralds will be learning about place value, addition, subtraction and multiplication and division. 

 

In Science, we will be learning about Animals including Humans. Pupils will be learning the basic needs an animal needs to survive, the importance of exercise and keeping healthy. Pupils will also be carrying out a range of observations and experiments relating to the human body. 

 

In Geography, our topic is 'Where in the World are We?'. Pupils will be taught to make links between these areas of learning, with the aim of developing engaged, motivated and curious learners that take an interest in the world around them. Pupils will be using maps, Google Maps, Areal photos and identifying physical and human features of Liverpool and their local area. Pupils will also be accessing our new orienteering programme which ahs recently been built on our school grounds. 

 

In Computing, pupils will develop their understanding of technology and how it can help them in their everyday lives. They will start to become familiar with the different components of a computer by developing their keyboard and mouse skills. Learners will also consider how to use technology responsibly.

 

Every Tuesday, we will have P.E. Please make sure you send your child's P.E kit into school. 

 

 

Homework:

Children will be sent home with spellings to learn each week, could you please find the time to practice with the children. 

Children will read at home each day with parents/carers. Please ensure it is noted daily in your child's reading record. 

 

At The Grange we believe that it is crucial to work in partnership with parents and carers. There is an expectation that you will support us by ensuring that your child completes the tasks that we set as homework.

Obviously the level of your engagement will depend on your child’s age but we expect you to take an active part in all aspects of homework. and where necessary, indicate that you have monitored the completion of it (e.g. by signing the Home/ School Reading Record Book)

The routines of reading everyday, learning spellings and multiplication tables etc. can be great fun and very rewarding for all concerned. Best results are achieved when homework is not done at the last minute but has a fixed time in a child’s established home routine. Short, sharp period of activity are preferable to prolonged periods of study where concentration can be lost.

Effective learning and consolidation of learning cannot happen in an environment with lots of distractions (e.g. television etc.) Please give some thought to where your child works at home.

Please see below the extensive list of websites that your child can visit to consolidate and extend his/her learning.
