Spring 2 2021
We’re off on an exciting expedition with Charles Darwin and his crew on HMS Beagle. Can you trace his route across the vast ocean? Stop at the magical Galápagos Islands to see the amazing species that helped Charles Darwin to develop his theory of evolution by natural selection. Do you know what’s so special about a lava lizard, or why the blue-footed booby has blue feet? See how animals adapt to their environments over time and meet some of the world’s greatest explorers and naturalists. Imagine how humans will evolve in millions of years. It’s a scary thought. Ready to trace the origin of species? Let’s set sail.
The children are expected to read at least five times a week,
practice their spelling and times tables. Additionally, children can complete the home learning ideas related to the current project.
Spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested the following Friday. Children will be put into spelling groups so will be aware of which spellings they need to practice. Some of the children will have experienced these spellings last year however repeating these will allow the children to become more confident at spelling these words.
Reading at Home
The children are expected to read at home at least five times a week. Reading diaries will be handed in and checked on a Monday. If they have read five times in a week they will receive two Dojo points and if they have read seven times (every day) they will receive three Dojo points.
The children will be given a short mathematics test every Friday. This will sometimes include times-tables however it may also include addition, subtraction and division questions. In order to answer the multiplication and division questions correctly I would like the children to regularly practice times-tables at home.
Children can now log on to Times Tables Rock Stars.
