Using 'Talk for write' strategies we will be learning and using different story structures to through the year. This half term, we will be looking at recounts (diaries) inspired by one of the class texts - Stone Age Boy.
Each week we build spelling knowledge, using Read Write Inc spellings. The weekly spellings (Fridge Words) will be sent home each week so they can be practiced at home.
Each day there will be whole class reading, either in English lessons, other curriculum subjects or as guided reading sessions (focusing on specific comprehension skills) Please make sure that reading books are in school every day.
This term we will be learning about the place value of numbers, using different calculation methods and fractions. Every week children are tested on their multiplication tables, which they can practice at home using Times Table Rock Stars.
This term we will be building on topics studied in previous year groups - light and electricity
Our PE slots are on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Children should come to school wearing their PE kit but wearing a school jumper.
