Summer Term Information
Willow Class have gained lots of new knowledge in the Spring Term and they have greatly enjoyed their Viking topic! Summer term begins and the weather will brighten and we can do some of our learning outside.
The theme this coming term is no less exciting than the Vikings. We will be journeying through the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age for our History topic. In English our text is based on the ‘Stone Age Boy’ by Satoshi Kitamura which we will use to write our own portal stories. This term we will focus on present and past continuous verbs (She is running/she was running), prepositions (in, over, under) and adverbials of time (when the… Just at that moment,…). There will also be some interesting guests at the very start of term, as the class is taken over by visitors from Stone Age!
In maths we will continue with money and move onto fractions, time and properties of shape.
On Wednesday, Mrs Leader will continue to teaching the class Science and RE, and this year the children will also have an hour of Forest School per week taught by a specialist.
PE will be on Tuesday afternoon as normal, so please make sure your child has their PE kit in school and it’s washed each half term.
Like last term, homework will be set each Monday and must be completed by the Friday of the same week. You can help with homework but please do not do it for your child. Please fill out your child’s reading records when you hear them read each night. All children should have their reading record in their book bags and should change their own book if it hasn’t been changed for them, please ask your child to collect it from school if it is left in class. (Homework is extremely important. Please refer to the Oak View homework policy for more information regarding homework.)
I will always make myself available to discuss your child’s progress and any questions you may have, please do not hesitate to catch me at the end of the day or to arrange another time to meet.
