The Great Kapok Tree
In English this term, we will be using our key text ‘The Great Kapok Tree’, to develop our persuasive and descriptive language in our own writing. Through our text, we will discover how the Amazon rainforest is at risk, and by putting ourselves in the role of the animals and plants that live there, we will create fictional and non-fictional pieces based around this.
Maths: Multiplication & Division
We will be starting this term with a focus on area. We will be developing our understanding of what an area is and how to find an area of a shape. Furthermore, we will focus on multiplication and division. We will explore the links between timetable facts and use a range of strategies to support their fluency. We will find division facts and explore fact families to embed their understanding of division.
Theme: The Ancient Maya Civilisation
This term we will be learning about The Ancient Maya Civilisation. The children will learn who the ancient Maya people were and where and when they lived. They will use maps and atlases to locate Maya cities and identify countries in Mesoamerica. They will discover the religious beliefs and rituals of the ancient Maya people and find out more about some of the many gods they worshipped.
Our Science topic this term is 'electricity’. We will identify common appliances that run on electricity. We will learn how to construct a simple series circuit and be able to identify and name its basic parts. We will be exploring patterns within a circuit and recognise some common conductors and insulators.
Home Learning is given out on a Thursday and is due in on a Tuesday. The activity sheet is stuck into your child's home learning book. It is an expectation that all children complete the tasks set within this time.
All of the children will have their PE lessons on Wednesdays and Thursdays. However, sometimes plans change, so we would ask that children have their PE kit in school every day please. For the colder months this can include jogging bottoms.
Please make sure your child’s water bottle is in school every day and that their name is written clearly on the bottle. Please provide children with a SOFT pencil case containing: 2x glue stick, 2x pencils, 2x handwriting pens, 2x pink biros ,2x purple biros,2x green biros, 2x whiteboard pens, a few coloured pens or pencils, and sharpener.
