Welcome back after the Christmas break. I hope you all enjoyed the festivities and wish you a peaceful New Year.
Our topic for the first half of this term is Architects and Engineers, followed by a topic on South America in the second half of term. We will be finding out about famous British architects and engineers and developing our own design skills. We will also be making a visit to the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester. During our South America topic, we will develop map skills and will find out about different habitats. Our English work will include biography and stories inspired by texts that we read together, while Maths will include percentages, data handling and some algebra. In the second half of the term, there is the much-anticipated visit to Robinwood, while this half-term we have the added challenge of the Spring Performance.
This half-term we will have P.E. on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays. Indoor kit will be needed on Mondays and Fridays, outdoor kit on Tuesdays. Our Monday sessions will be tied in with the Fresh programme.
Spellings will continue to be set on Wednesdays, with tests the following Wednesday. Please help your child to learn and practise these spellings at home. Thank you. I usually set Home Learning on Thursdays (for return by the following Monday). It is very important that your child completes and returns these tasks on time. Thanks for your support with this.
As we begin the approach to the SATs season, please help your child’s preparation by avoiding absences from school wherever possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to speak to me before or after school, or arrange to speak with Mrs Leigh.
