Spring One

In English we will be reading the story 'Zog and the Flying Doctors'. 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 passports to fly with The Flying Doctors. Pupils will also be looking at poetry within this story. We are also looking at poetry within nursery rhymes, pupils will be looking and focusing on the language used within these nursery rhymes and participating in performance poetry. 

 

In Mathematics we will be learning about number and place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, measuring in weight and volume, fractions and shape. 

 

In Science, we will be learning about materials and their properties. Pupils will be exploring and sorting everyday materials into specific categories and carrying out experiments and comparing them. 

 

In History, our topic is 'Terrific Toys'. Pupils will be exploring with various different toys from the past and comparing them with toys they play with in the present. Pupils will be placing toys in chronological order, sequencing events from then and now from living memory. 

 

In Computing, we will be accessing the unit 'Moving a Robot. This unit will introduce pupils to the programme of design through algorithms.  

 

Every Tuesday and Wednesday, 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. 

 

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.
