Core subject Focus Areas: 

Guided Reading:
The main text we will be reading and analysing is Middleworld: The Jaguar Stones. Reading will be a big priority this year so please support us by encouraging your child to read, read and read some more 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.


Our focus genre will be Myths. Children will be using a classic Maya myth as a basis for writing their own. Writing will focus on creating atmosphere using descriptive language, high level vocabulary and using punctuation accurately. Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPAG) will also continue to be a focus this year.


We will be following the White Rose scheme of work which will focus on properties of shape, ratio and fractions, decimals and percentages. We will also revisit learning from the Autumn term.

DT: Enterprise
PSHE : Healthy Relationships

RE :  Eucharist
Geography/History:  The Maya Civilisation

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 on 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. The reading record books must also be signed daily.
