We are using the Harry Potter series as our topic this half term – entitled, Welcome to Hogwarts.

 

In our topic lessons, we will be covering a variety of subjects, including Geography all around a Harry Potter theme. For instance, we are looking at 4 and 6 figure grid references and using a Harry Potter map.

 

 

 In English our focus will be The Harry Potter series. We will be looking at a variety of texts. These will include: story writing, descriptive writing - looking at figurative language and persuasive writing.

 

Throughout Maths we will be covering Fractions. This includes using all four operations and reasoning and problem solving.

The children are continuing with Clarinet lessons so please make sure they have their instruments with them on Tuesday.

The children will bring a list of spellings to learn every Monday and they will be tested the following Monday. We have invested in a new scheme called Spelling Shed. The children seem to love it already and enjoy the competitive side!

Our Curriculum this half term should be great! We are going to be studying a wide variety of texts around the theme of Narnia. Currently, we are concentrating on narrative and the children have written some excellent descriptive pieces.

We are looking at internet safety in ICT which is very important. Children and adults need to stay safe online and know the dangers that may occur.

In History we are studying The Shang Dynasty of Ancient China. We have already looked at the start of the Shang Dynasty and the children have made some amazing dragons in Art linked to History. These will be displayed in school so please come and have a look.

In Science we are looking at Living Things and their Habitats. In the first lesson children had to classify animal according to characteristics for a new zoo!

In Maths our over-arching theme is multiplication and division and following that, statistics. We are currently introducing a new scheme which is called Big Maths, which allows the children to embed their basic skills so that they can move onto problem solving and reasoning easily.
