Writing - During the first part of the Autumn term, we will be developing our narrative writing skills. We will develop further our setting and character description, gaining greater control over clause structures. We will explore Mayan Myths and working towards creating our own.
Religious Education - On our return in Autumn, our focus will 'Creation.' As part of this the children will understand that to be a person of God we must make choices guided by rules and this may involve personal sacrifice. Also, know why we need rules and what the consequences of living without them are. Following this is a unit of learning dedicated to Prayers, Saints and Feasts. Children will know and explore the significance of the major feasts in honour of Mary as well as explore the Catholic belief of Mary and the Saints sharing the life of heaven.
Our PE days are now Wednesday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child has their kit in school in order to participate in this fun, important and compulsory area of school life. Those pupils without kit will use the spare items held by the class teacher.
- Hearing your child read can be difficult at this age, but as often as possible, ask your child questions about their reading book, challenge them to predict what will happen next and ask them to summarise what they have read so far.
- Spellings will be issued on a Tuesday then tested on the following Monday. Handwriting practice sheets will contain their spelling list and the children will have access to 'Literacy Planet' to practice further online.
- Each pupil will have a 'One Minute Maths Challenge' which they need to practice at home, in preparation for being tested at points throughout the term.
- In preparation for our SATs in May, the teacher will also send home material to support your child's learning.
