Welcome back to term 2 – we look forward to hearing about your children’s holidays and getting started with some new learning this term.
This term, our main topic will continue to be around WWII. We will be heading to the Somerset rural museum to support our learning in lessons and will finish our topic with a celebratory VE day. We will also continue to learn about properties and changes of materials in Science and covering netball and basic fitness skills in PE. We will be celebrating differences in PSHE and looking at a unit on incarnation in RE. We will be beginning our first topic on DT which will be looking at electrical circuits and components.
The children will continue to have French lessons every Wednesday morning with Mrs Allenby. On Thursday, they will cover PE and Music or Computing in PPA. They will, therefore, need to wear their PE kit on Thursday each week. They will also have a second PE lesson taught by their class teacher. This will be on a Monday for Guppy, Brunel, Campbell and on a Wednesday for Cabot and Muller. Please refer to the uniform policy as we expect uniform to be in line with this and children will be told if this is not the case. Children should only wear PE kits on these days above.
Our Writing focuses this term will be based around character descriptions, poetry and alternative endings. We will continue with our class book ‘When the Sky Falls’ whilst also looking at a new book ‘Rose Blanche’. In Maths, we will be focusing on column methods and fractions.
We hope your children enjoy these topics and have a fantastic term!
