In numeracy this term we will briefly review addition, subtraction and multiplication before moving on division. We will continue to work on mastering our basic facts through weekly CLIC and Learn It Challenges and Basic Facts Quizzes. We will also look at the properties of 2D and 3D shape and angles, symmetry and transformation.
In literacy this term, we will continue with individual reading books as well as daily independent reading. We will be focusing on developing our reading skills - vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval and summarizing and sequencing. We will also be reading The Enchanted Wood as our first class novel this term.
Much of our writing this term will be focused on creating an imaginative story which we will hopefully be able to publish into a book. We will look at character development, setting and plot when writing our stories. We will also continue to develop the different aspects of VCOP (vocabulary, connectives, openers, punctuation).
In P.E. we will be taking part in various fielding and striking activities such as cricket and rounders and athletics.
In French, we continue to participate in listening and talking, reading and writing activities to further develop our understanding of the French language.
Our main topic this term is Planet Earth. Through this topic we will explore various science concepts such as how water changes from one form to another and how the movements of the sun, moon and Earth are related.
Through our Planet Earth topic we will look at how our local landscape was formed, discuss how weather affects our daily lives and look at different climate zones around the world.
