Welcome to the Summer Term
In English we will be reading The Sun King by Emma Carroll. This book closely links with our Ancient Egyptian topic which we are looking at in History. We will be writing newspaper reports and creating some adventure/ descriptive writing.
In Mathematics we will be looking at length & height, position & direction, fractions, time, decimals and properties of shape.
In Science, we will be learning about ‘Living things and their habitats’ We will be looking at why animals live in different environments and how they have adapted to the environments in which they live in.
In Computing we will be looking at creating digital writing content.
In History we will be continuing with Ancient Egyptians. On Thursday 23rd June we will be attending a workshop at the World Museum in Liverpool to consolidate and further our learning about this topic.
In P.E on Friday mornings we will be concentrating on ball skills. On Thursday afternoons for the remainder of this half term we will be going swimming. Could you please ensure that after every swimming session that children’s swimming kits are washed and returned, thanks in advance.
On Monday and Tuesday afternoons we will be focusing on social and emotional interventions with groups of children looking at support children with low self-esteem, social interaction and developing coping mechanisms.
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.
I would like to thank parents/carers for your continued support at home. If you need any further guidance please contact me via the class email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
