Autumn Two...Welcome Back!
I hope you had a lovely half term and enjoyed some quality time with each other and some decent weather.
This week has been a busy one. We’ve started new topics in English and Science, and will soon be embarking on music lessons in class. I have attached a curriculum map for your information.
Our topic this term is Brilliant Biomes! Exploring plant and animal life in different parts of the world, we will be focussing particularly closely on the Savannah Grasslands and Deserts. I have attached a Knowledge Organiser for Brilliant Biomes to help you understand and perhaps talk about with your child. Parts of our writing units will be closely linked to our topic as well.
In Maths, we continue with multiplication and division before progressing onto fractions. As I discussed with you all at Parents’ Evening, this means that times tables are absolutely crucial. Please support your child with this by using Doodles – there is a times tables area that they can use.
On the subject of Doodles, spelling and maths homework for this week is online now. Please encourage your child to spend 10 minutes daily doing their Doodles rather than huge chunks once a week. Also, a reminder that we expect them to read a minimum of 3 times a week. Reading Lair is open daily from 8.30 to help with this.
PE this term continues to be on a Monday and a Wednesday. Please ensure that your child has kit in school on both these days.
Finally, a big well done to Obama Class. They’ve returned to school with a positive attitude to their learning and have settled back into our class routines quickly. Keep it up, Obama Class!
Have a lovely weekend.
