If you have any concerns or queries please do not hesitate to contact me either before or after school. We are also using class Dojo to communicate with parents and share some of the amazing work the children are crafting; I know the children are really proud and excited about sharing their work with you.
Find below some information about spellings, our broad and balanced curriculum and some helpful guidance.
This term we will be focussing on:
English - Non-fiction Non-Chronological Report about Japan
Maths - Fractions

The spellings for each week will consist of 18 words: 6 for each level (bronze, silver and gold). The children need to pick a level in which to aim for that week; this will help to encourage indpedendent learning. The children need to get all 6 spellings correct in each level in order to obtain a bronze, silver or gold award for the week. The help sheet is attached in order to provide helpful guidance when practising spellings at home.
This year, in preparation for next year, there will be a small piece of Maths and English homework to complete each week. All children should aim to have a go as the maths will focus on the basic skills of adding, subtracting, multiplication and division with an optional extension. Children should aim to accomplish as much as they can; if there are any problems that arise, do not hesitate to contact me via Dojo or with a comment in their homework book.
Our topic this term will be based on Japan. This will be cross curricular and we will also be writing a non-chronological report about Japan in English. Everything from the Golden Temple to Kyoto Tower will be studied in great detail whilst trying to give children a local flavour of life in the 'Land of the Rising Sun'. The children will sample some local delicacies including Miso soup and Pocky. We will study Japanese art and look at some of the ways that Japan has been affected by Natural Disasters such as earthquakes.
In science this term we will be learning basic electrics in order to power a simple circuit with aim to building our own robots at the end of the topic! We will be learning how to describe voltage and current and to recognise the difference between a simple and a parallel circuit.
