Week beginning 23-4-18

Year 3

Next week we are continuing to learn more about our history topic on the Stone Age. We have already learnt about the concept of a timeline and will be learning about some of the main invaders and settlers in British history. Some of us will get to experience what it is like to produce cave paintings using interesting ingredients for paint and no brushes.
Our main focus for maths will be on shape and angles. We will learn about parallel and perpendicular lines along with identifying different types of angles.

Year 4

In the third week of this half term Year 4 will be moving onto identify different types of angles in mathematics and then identifying shapes. In SFA classes will be moving onto the writing aspect, which is a narrative and instructions. In science they will be studying different food types and looking at what makes a healthy diet. In computing they will be using Scratch to explore how shapes are constructed by applying their angle knowledge.
4S go swimming on Monday and all of Y4 have PE on Wednesday afternoon.

Year 5

Year 5 children will be spending a very exciting week on our Kingswood residential.  The children will be taking part in a range of exciting and challenging activities to develop their teamwork, perseverance and resilience.  They will also be developing their independence, including completely making their own bed!  The children that are not attending the residential will be taking part in their own exciting project with Mrs Davis.  These children will need to remember their P.E. kits.

While we are experiencing such lovely weather, can you please ensure your child has suitable sunscreen, a hat and a water bottle in school.

Year 6

Next week, we will be continuing to learn about pie charts and statistics- before moving on to algebra. 
During SFA lessons we will be applying our reading skills to practise answering comprehension questions.
In SPaG lessons, we will be consolidating our understanding of SPaG terminology and we will be using SPaG.com to apply our understanding to test style questions. 
After all of our hard revision, we will be enjoying some well-deserved downtime; where we will be showcasing our skills in other areas of the curriculum, including: art, sport and computing.

Don’t forget:
– Practise your spellings in preparation for our weekly tests
– Use TTRockstars to practise timestables 
– Recall all FDP facts
– PE kit should be in school on a Monday ready for our PE lesson on Thursday
– Remember to read often and complete your reading records

Things we are looking forward to:
– Countdown to Sats

Week beginning 16-4-18

Year 3

We’ve enjoyed our first week back of the summer term and especially Science Week. We are looking forward to learning more about fractions in maths including finding equivalent fractions using diagrams.

Our new topic is the Stone Age and we will be developing our understanding of British history by creating a timeline dating back to the early Stone Age.

Please remember our PE day is on Tuesday. We have had a number of children forgetting kits. Your child will need a change of footwear along with suitable clothing for the weather.

Year 4

In the second week of this term Y4 will be continuing with converting measures and investigating perimeters, especially more complicated rectilinear shapes. It would really help if children were encouraged at home to look at packaging and recipes for examples of different weights and volumes. In science we move down the throat from the study of teeth into the structure of the digestive system!

Swimming on Monday afternoon for 4S and PE for all  Y4  is on Wednesday afternoon.

Year 5

After an exciting Science week, Year 5 are now looking forward to starting our new topic – Around the world in 80 Days.

We will be beginning our exploration of the continents, with a particular focus on important rivers and mountainous regions.

In maths, children will continue to develop their understanding of measures, applying their knowledge of conversions practically.  SFA lessons will continue to develop children’s reading and inference skills.  Please remember it is important to read at home every day and record this in your reading diary.  In music lessons, 5M are learning to play the recorder and 5D and 5PM will be learning how to play an instrument as part of a Samba band.

PE kits (indoor and outdoor) must be in school on a Monday, including suitable footwear.

Spellings and times table facts will be tested on Friday, so please remember to practise.  

Times Table Rock Stars and PurpleMash are excellent ways to complete home learning.

Year 6

Next week we will be continuing our learning of ratio and moving on to learning all bout statistics; including learning how to construct pie charts.

During SFA lessons we will be applying our reading skills to answer comprehension questions.

In SPaG lessons, we will be consolidating our understanding of SPaG terminology and we will be using SPaG.com to apply our understanding to test style questions. 

After all of our hard revision, we will be enjoying some well-deserved downtime; where we will be showcasing our skills in other areas of the curriculum, including: art, sport and computing.

Homework for Y3, 4 and 5 is now updated on the homework page.

Year 3

We have enjoyed our Tremors project but are looking forward to our new Stone Age topic. Our learning will start by placing significant events in British history on a timeline, beginning with the Stone Age and finishing with modern Britain. We will learn how the Stone Age people survived and what tools they used. 

In the first week back we are working in our new SFA groups and are looking forward to reading more interesting books.

Year 4

At the start of our summer term Year 4 will be studying measures and converting units, then moving onto perimeter of 2D shapes in mathematics. Our new theme called Blood, Bones and Gory bits will be introduced with a study of teeth. This theme focuses on the human body and, in particular the digestive system.

SFA starts straightaway and children will be introduced to their new book. It is also Science Week so classes will be performing experiments culminating in a celebration assembly at the end of the week.

4J have their last swimming lesson on the first Monday back and PE is on a Wednesday as usual. 

Year 5

For Y5 we start the new term with a mini Science week where we will be delving into the topic of FORCES.  This will include investigations into: Air, Gravity and Displacement.  A very hands-on week.  This will then conclude our Space Theme.

In mathematics, we will be supporting our science learning with converting and using a variety of measures.  Practical and theoretical.

Computing will continue with coding in our new IT suite.

There will also be the usual arithmetic assessment to gauge the mathematical understanding.

SPAG will be revisiting possessive apostrophes.

Year 6

After our well deserved rest over Easter, we will be making our final preparations for SATs; learning about statistics and averages in maths, continuing to practise applying reading skills during SFA lessons and consolidating our understanding of SPaG terminology. 
The fun isn’t over for year 6 just yet: in Topic lessons, we will be launching our new, chocolate inspired theme. Learning all about the history of chocolate and where in the world our favourite treats are created. 
The year 6 team would like to take this opportunity to thank our families for your continued support and to wish you all a lovely Easter holiday.

Conrad Burdekin Visits School

Conrad Burdekin Visits School

   

We were very privileged to work with author, Conrad Burdekin this week – he worked predominantly with our Y4 and Y5 children promoting a love of writing and reading.

The children spoke very positively about the day and thoroughly enjoyed learning from first hand what it is like to be a ‘real’ author.

Thanks to Conrad for providing our children with a sense of purpose for their writing.
