Curriculum News - Summer 2021
Welcome back to Summer Term.
PE will still be on Wednesdays and Fridays. However children will come dressed in their PE kits on a Wednesday and change into their uniform after their lesson. On Fridays children will bring their PE kit into school and get changed in school for their lesson and then go home in their PE kits. Multi-sports clubs will take place on a Wednesday and Thursday after school and will finish at 4:15 pm.
Homework will be set on a Friday for spellings and times tables and tested the following Friday. The children are expected to read at least 3 times per week with an adult at home. The more you read with your child the more fluent they will become. When you have heard your child read, remember to record this in their green reading record book. The children will also be set one additional piece of homework on a Friday and this will need to be uploaded on to SeeSaw. This homework will be linked to work we are doing in school. Reading books need to be brought into school on a Tuesday and they will go home on a Thursday.
English- this term we will be writing our own fear stories based on The Crocodile Who Didn't Like Water. Our focus will be on using the correct punctuation (full stops, exclamation marks, commas, ellipsis and capital letters)and sequencing a cohesive chain of events in their story. Later on we will be writing about the life cycle of different plants.
Maths - we are going to revisit addition, subtraction, multiplication and division topics in the first half of this term.
Topic- Geography based- Would you rather live in The Gambia or the U.K? We will be using Google Earth to find out where The Gambia is and how we would travel there. We will look at the tourist attractions in the country and find out the reasons people choose to go on holiday there. We will also link this to our art lessons and look at pattern, line and form in African art.
