Dear Parents / Carers,

I hope you have all had a fantastic Easter break and that the children are all ready for the challenges to come.

In English this term we will be exploring the journey story of ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ by Michael Morpurgo . Our non-fiction will focus on a recounts, along with travel brochures!

Our Maths will develop our abilities to understand decimals, percentages and shape before focusing on measurements. It is vital that the children learn and know their times tables (up to 12 x 12) fluently. This will support their learning and enable them to answer questions of increasing difficulty with ease. Plenty of practice at home, including times tables games, will help with this.

Science this term will focus on forces before shifting to look at planets and space. This will include looking at the order of the planets and learning about how days, nights and seasons are created.

Our topic this term is ‘Our town, our story’ we will be learning Winford’s history including the salt mine. We will learn about the history of the town, how it has changed and even how the salt mining has shaped the town . We will look at the uses of Salt and how it has been mined.

PE will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays children will be expected to be in the correct PE kit for this, however it is best if your child brings in their kit on a Monday and then takes it home on a Friday to wash. Brass will still be on a Friday, so please ensure they bring their instruments.

Homework (Maths, English and Spellings), will be set every Monday and is due back by Friday. There will be a weekly homework club every Monday to support children with this. As part of the children’s weekly homework it is essential that children regularly spend time reading and practicing their times tables (1-12) at home. Please ensure your child reads regularly at home, writing in their reading record when they do so.

Please do not hesitate to come and speak to us if you need any more information or have any questions.

Many thanks,

Miss Richardson
