Summer Term Information

 

Happy Summer Term! Our new topic is the Mayans and Mexico. We will be having a Geography and History focus split over the two half terms. Please see our knowledge organiser below to see what sticky knowledge they need to retain. Our Science topic is about the Properties and changes of materials. We will be doing lots of fun investigations and again please find our knowledge organiser below to see what sticky knowledge children will need to retain. 

Spring Information

 

Our topic this term is split into two. During the first half term our topic is called 'Location, Location, Location'. We will be looking at two different countries. One being São Tomé and Príncipe and the other Croatia. To help support your children with this please look at our knowledge organisers below where they can look at their sticky knowledge and key vocabulary. In Science we will be looking at animals and humans (the knowledge organiser for this topic is below). Our key text this term is called 'The Man Who Walked the Wire' by Mordicai Gerstein. 

 

During the second half term our topic is 'Crime and Punishment' where we will have more of a History focus. More information to follow for this....

A few reminders...

  • Tuesdays and Wednesdays are our PE days.
  • Reading homework is to read 3 times per week. The children do not have to read to an adult, but if they read and an adult signs their diary to say that this is so, they earn a green card and have a square stamped on their reading pin challenge grid. 
  • Spellings and spelling homework are given (and tested) every Wednesday.
  • Maths homework is to learn all times tables that are not already known. If you know all of them to 12x12, start on the next ones i.e. 13, 14, 15 times table etc.
