Welcome back to terms 5 & 6! We hope you had a restful Easter break. During the next two terms our topics will be Flow - term 5 geography focus and Mighty Metals - term 6 science focus.
In Flow we will focus on what a river is, the journey of a river as well as looking at the features of our local river - The Stour. We will also be continuing to look at plants as part of our science unit.
In Mighty Metals we will compare how things move of different surfaces and explore magnets and how they attract or repel each other. We will also be designing and making 3d structures as part of a DT project.
In Maths we will be finishing off our work on fractions and starting time. We also be looking at angles and properties of shape. We will continue to focus on the rapid recall of addition and subtraction facts as well as multiplication facts.
In English will have two main texts - Oliver and the Sewigs and The Iron Man where we will focus on recounts and narrative. We will continue with weekly spellings - so please look out for the look, say, cover, write check, sheets each week.
Homework will continue to be set on Purple Mash on a Monday and Wednesday - please ask your child to check their 2do's.
Children will continue to look after their plants, we will ask for them to be brought back in school late in term 5 ready for replanting.
Trips and visits
During term 5 children will be visited by Sandwich Bay Bird Observatory to support their plants unit. There will also be an exciting trip to the 'Little Stour' 26.5.22 to finish our rivers topic.
Any questions or queries, please do ask the class teacher – we are at the classroom door at the end of every day and are happy to talk to you.
