TOPIC

Autumn 

Conflict - We begin our focus on Conflict by exploring World War 2 and finish with a focus on Ancient Greece.

ENGLISH

Autumn 

We have a very exciting term of English planned. We begin our topic of ‘Conflict’ starting with a focus on the Second World War using Carrie’s War by Nina Bawden. We will then be inspired by a visit from the Young Shakespeare Company in October to perform Macbeth.  We will then be exploring Ancient Greek myths, writing our own versions.

In writing, the genres we will explore will be: poetry, informal letters, description, balanced argument, instructions, myths and scientific writing. 

This year we will be continuing with the Read Write Inc. spelling scheme which involves the children practicing a set of spelling rules in a range of activities. There will also be a focus on the year 3, 4, 5 and 6 common exception words.

MATHS

Autumn 

 In maths this term we will be focusing on the following areas:

We will continue to concentrate on the children’s mental calculation agility.  We hope that you will be able to support the children in every day mathematical opportunities. In addition, it is crucial that the children continue to learn and revise their multiplication and division tables to 12 x 12.  These will be tested on a regular basis through Times Table Rockstars quizzes.

The children will continue to practise the skills required for the mental arithemtic paper. This will require the children to have a solid understanding of the written methods for all four operations. In order to feel confident with the four formal operations, it is vital that the children are fluent with their times tables and addition and subtraction facts such as bonds to 100 and decimal complements to make one.

PE

Fridays - Indoor PE

PE Kit
