This term we will be exploring the topic of Pirates!
What a Scary Pirate that is!
Within Literacy, the children will be looking at a range of pirate stories which are written by the same author. Within the first 2 weeks, we will be exploring the stories ‘How I became a Pirate’ and ‘Pirates don’t do Nappies’ by Melinda Long. We will use these stories to imagine that we have been taken by the pirates and create stories about our different adventures. Throughout this term the children will be given the opportunity to write in a range of genres; writing stories, letters in a bottle, pirate poetry and instructions for pirate soup. We will have lots of pirate fun!
In Maths, the children will be consolidating their skills and understanding of the different operations that we have been learning throughout the year. Children will be challenged on developing their understanding through a range of problem solving, puzzles and questions. The children will practise sample questions that will allow the children to use all the range of operations.
Scratch is the Computing Software that we will be using this half term.
Our homework is set weekly on Friday and is to be returned to school on Monday mornings. You can expect to receive 3 pieces of homework weekly, Literacy, Maths and Spellings. Ms Rickards runs a homework club on a Thursday, for children who have not completed their homework, or those who need a little help.
Our reading books should be read as often as possible and brought into school every morning. As little as 5 minutes a night can help your child so much!
PE this term is on Wednesday and Thursday. Please remember, your PE kit should be in school all week.
