What will we be learning about this half term?
This half term we will be learning about the grisly and fascinating history of the Aztec civilisation. We will learn about the lives of the people who lived there along with their beliefs and art. In science we will be learning about plants and the different ways they reproduce by looking at different types of plants and growing some of our own for the Triangle of Life. In art we will be creating textiles and in RE looking at the beliefs and teachings of Islam. The start of the maths year will be looking at place value ready to solve more complex problems as the year goes on!
Curriculum Overview for Parents and Pupils
We will learn spelling patterns each week in class through our spelling lessons and any spellings that you need to practise some more will be sent home with you in your journal! You will find the list of statutory spellings below that your year group needs to learn too!
In Oak class we use Times Tables rockstars to practise our timestables. Each half term we will test your timestables knowledge and TT Rockstars will work out which ones you need to practise next! You can practise as much as you like at home on this - your login is on your journal - but you have to do at least 30 minutes a week at home on it!
You will have a banded colour reading book, at school an adult will hear you read this book at least once a week and will write this in your journal. You should read at least four times a week for ten minutes each time at home. We expect you to write at least three of your reading sessions in your journal. Just the date, pages and title is plenty! You will have one book for home and one book for school. You can bring your home reading book back on a Monday when you finish it and change it! You can also access Reading Planet from home which has a great amount of reading books at the level that is correct for you.
Seesaw is our online learning platform. Here you will find lessons posted daily for guided reading, maths, literacy and topic. We will post spellings weekly. All work you do will be checked by an adult and all maths and literacy will be marked. If we think you need a little extra help or you ask for some help an adult will zoom with you to move your learning on!
