Spring Term

The children have returned to school after the Christmas break, eager and ready to learn. We have many exciting and interesting activities planned and we are sure that the children will continue to work hard during the Spring Term.

English

The children, in their topic sessions, will be learning about the rainforests so the English work for this term will link with this. They will be describing the setting and atmosphere of the rainforest and then writing across different genres focusing on different perspectives i.e. from a shopper in Rochdale to the point of view of a gorilla whose home is under threat from deforestation. The children will continue to develop their grammar skills so they are able to include these in their own writing too.

Topic

Linking closely with the English work this term, the children will be learning about the rainforests. We will be finding out, initially, where the rainforests are located, investigating fair trade, studying both the advantage and disadvantages of deforestation and allowing time for individual research into an aspect of rainforest the children are particularly interested in.

Maths

During the term the children will be learning about:

During all maths teaching there will be an emphasis on number fluency, reasoning and problems solving.

 

Reading Books

There is an expectation that children read or are read to each evening. This is to promote children’s love of reading and encourages discussion around texts. This should also be recorded in their school reading record.

Spellings

Children will complete a spelling test each week based on a spelling pattern taught in class (The spellings are given out on a Wednesday and will be tested the following Wednesday)

Homework

Maths homework is sent out each Friday and returned the following Tuesday.

English homework is sent out each Tuesday and returned the following Friday.

PE

Please bring your PE kit into school and leave it in class until half term when we will send it home after the final PE lesson. We ask that earrings are removed on this day to ensure that no accidents occur.
