Core subject Focus Areas: 

Guided Reading:

Middleworld by J & P Voekel will form our guided reading text this term. Children will embed retrieval and inference skills as well as continue to be given opportunities to develop their fluency and oracy skills throughout the curriculum. In order to continue supporting the school’s priority of reading, please encourage your child to read on a daily basis at home. Question your children about the books they are reading in school and at home and help develop your child's love for reading using our top tips guide on Showbie.


Writing will follow the ‘Talk for Writing’ strategies and children will continue to develop their written skills in a range of ways. Children will be putting their creative writing skills to the test by writing a myth. 


Our Maths focus this half term will be percentages, measurement and conversions, algebra and geometry.  We will also continue to revisit what we have learnt so far in the year through daily number fluency sessions (arithmetic). Children will be provided with the opportunity to use concrete, pictorial and abstract methods to gain a strong understanding of  mathematical concepts. 


Big question: What is light?
This term will continue our focus on the Physics strand, light in particular. Children will be investigating the way light behaves and appears to travel in straight lines.
PSHE : Independence and responsibility

History:  Mayans

Music :  Dancing in the Street

It is essential that homework tasks are completed on a daily basis, in the set time. Tasks will be set from the revision books, on the My Maths website and the Showbie learning platform. Daily reading should also take place at home. Please ensure that you discuss books that the children are reading and ask the children questions. Also please ensure that the reading record books are signed daily.
