Dear Pupils, Parents and Guardians,
3 – 2 – 1 – Term 2 Lifts off!
I hope you’ve had a lovely half term break and are looking forward to exploring the cosmos.
As you may have guessed; this term is all about “Extreme Earth and Space” where we will be rocketing to the moon in a race against time, visiting Mars, getting to know some rather impressive astronauts, while also getting creative when exploring the solar system.
Our focus in Literacy this term is more towards the Non-fiction element, with Newspapers, Biographies and Debates throughout the term. ‘Spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG)’, reading and inference continues to be a focus, so please continue to read as often as you can with/to your child as it makes a big difference to their success at school. Likewise as much times tables practice as possible too.
Continuing on with the ‘White Rose’ scheme in Numeracy; this term ‘the four operations’ will be concluded, while we will also be looking towards statistics, space and shape. Solving problems in context will be a large focus of the term.
On top of this, Science will revolve around ‘Earth and Space’, effective ways of researching will be looked at, among along with developing safe use of the web. Swimming continues on Tuesday’s and outdoor games on Thursdays. Please ensure that full PE kit is in school at all times.
Homework will be sent this week, consisting of activities to choose from up until the end of the term. These are to be set every Friday and handed in Thursday, unless you and your child choose a two/three week project.
If you have any questions or information you wish me to know about please talk to the teachers on the gate in the morning, drop a note to the office or send it in with your child or catch me at the door at the end of the day.
Neil DeGrasse Tyson exclaimed “I think of space not as the final frontier but as the next frontier. Not as something to be conquered, but to be explored”… So let’s get Exploring Eagles!
