Welcome back and a Happy New Year!

We hope you all had a restful and enjoyable festive period and are looking forwards to supporting your child with their learning this term? The Orange Class teams are looking forwards to this term when we can really get stuck in to developing all those skills we learnt in terms 1 and 2 and learning some new ones too!

Below is a brief overview of what we will be learning this term, this will be under the topic of 'Lovely London'.

In Maths...

we will be learning about time. Days of the week, months of the year, language of time and even how to tell the time to the hour and half past the hour. We will also be continuing with place value, particularly with higher numbers; practicing some more addition and subtractions problems and learning about length and height.

In English...

we will be learning about some more traditional tales, finding out about all the different ways in which they can be told (audio, video, stories and play scripts). Linking in with 'Lovely London' we will also be learning about non-fiction writing, how to write recounts and information text and we will finish the term with some more poetry. We will be looking out for improving on the spelling of our 'tricky words', making sure we are always using capital letters and full stops and developing our sentences by adding in conjunctions and adjectives.

In History...

we will be learning all about the Fire of London, what sort of houses they lived in, what started the fire and who wrote about it.

In Science...

we are continuing to learn about materials and their properties but focussing on testing our ideas and recording predictions.

In RE...

we will be learning about the creation story and our term value of 'Forgiveness'.

In Design and Technology...

we will be learning all about textiles. How they are made and how you can use them.

In ICT...

we will be learning about how to stay safe on the internet, how to find pictures on the web and different ways in which we can use the pictures we find.

and

In Music...

we will be learning about the link between animal sounds and music.

 

As always mathletics and bug club are available for extra practice. Let your class teacher know if you need extra resources adding!
