in.  We hope you enjoy reading our class page.    

 

 

 

Spring Term 2020

We hope that you all had a fantastic Christmas break and are ready to get stuck into the next few weeks.  Our topic this half term will be Frozen Kingdoms.  In the Frozen Kingdoms project, your child will learn about the regions of the Arctic and Antarctic. They will learn about the similarities and differences between these two regions, including the climate, landscape and natural resources. They will learn how to use grid references, lines of latitude and longitude, contour lines and symbols to identify the geographical locations of the Arctic and Antarctic, and how these, along with the tilt of the Earth, affect day length and warmth. They will investigate polar oceans to learn how they differ from other oceans on Earth and how climate change increases Earth's temperature and leads to rising sea levels. They will learn about the indigenous people of the Arctic, including how their lives have changed over time, and about the positives and negatives of tourism in Antarctica. They will also learn about classifying animals, animal adaptations and evolution, and polar exploration and discovery.

 

We have got some great sports coaches in school at the moment so the children will be very active throughout the week. In Pioneer’s Class this will include: karate, athletics and multi-skills.

Homework

 

The children are expected to read at least five times a week,

 practice their spelling and times tables. 

 

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. 

Times-tables Practice

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.
