Science - This half term we will be focusing and exploring sound, how it is produced and how we can vary the volume and pitch.  

PSHE -  We will be looking closely at 'The Bad Apple' which focuses on anti-social behaviour and how this impacts others. We will then move on to relationships. 

DT - In DT will be designing and making our own World Cup wrist bands. Firstly, we will be looking at designs of the England football kit and how it has changed over time. We will then incorporate these ideas into our own design. We will be looking and trying a range of different stitches which can be used to join two fabrics together. We will then evaluate these, carefully thinking about which was best and why.

This half term will be very busy with lots of exciting things going on.

Homework

Our homework is set weekly on Friday. There will be three pieces per week (One spelling, one literacy and one maths). Homework is to be returned to school on the following Thursday.

A homework club will run on Thursday lunchtime for children who have not completed their homework, or those who need a little help.

Aside from this, we are encouraging the children to read daily, even if just for 5/10 minutes as it can really help children progress in their reading.
