Dear parents and children,
Welcome back to the spring term!
Science, History and Geography:
During the spring term we will be learning about volcanoes and rocks! We will discover how they are formed and we will even make a volcano of our own! The children are all very excited! During the second half of the spring term we will study the Stone Age to the Iron Age.
We will start our maths topic with multiplication and division before progressing on to fractions and measure in the second half of the spring term.
In English we will be planning and writing our own stories which the children will base closely on the text, ‘Where the Wild Things Are’ by Maurice Sendak. Throughout the second half of the spring term the children will use their knowledge of volcanoes to write an explanation text and end the term by writing a diary entry from the perspective of a citizen of the Stone Age.
This term our religious education topic will be ‘People of God’ and ‘The Easter Story’.
Spellings and Multiplication tables:
This year children will bring home homework in the form of spellings, reading and multiplication tables.
The children can practise their multiplication and spellings in the red homework book which has been provided. There is space for the children to practise spellings and multiplications each day. The books will be collected on a Wednesday and the children will be tested for times-tables on a Wednesday and tested for spellings on a Thursday. Red homework books will be given out with the new homework on a Thursday. Children who do not complete the homework task are asked to complete it on a Thursday lunch time before they go out for break.
Please can you ensure that all of your child’s uniform is clearly labelled as well as their P.E kit which needs to be in school for P.E every Friday.
Buckingham Class will be swimming every Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their P.E kit with a towel in school every Tuesday.
Please can you hear your child read every evening and log this in their reading diary.
