English: Arthur and the Golden Rope


Our English text is ‘Arthur and the Golden Rope’. This text is set in Iceland, therefore we will be researching and exploring Iceland’s culture and its location. We will be writing exciting newspaper reports, diary entries and poems. This text links well with our topic for this term and it explores the myths and legends of the Norse World.

 

Maths: Shape, Statistics, Position and Direction

    

In Maths, we will be finishing our decimals topic, looking further into the links between decimals and fractions. We will then move on to converting money and explore how to add and subtract it. Then, we will be learning how to tell the time using 12 and 24-hour clocks, telling the time to the nearest minute and converting between analogue and digital time.

 

Theme: Vikings

 

This term we will be learning about the ‘Vikings’. We will be exploring where the Vikings came from, where they settled and what their villages looked like. We will explore how Vikings affected life in Britain and explore a range of Viking artefacts.

 

Science: All Living Things

We will continue our Science topic ‘All Living Things’. We will be exploring our local area to identify and classify different animal and plant species. We will investigate how when environments change, they can pose a risk to wildlife and find out how we as humans can limit this - making our own bug-friendly hotel in the process!

General Reminders

Home Learning is given out on a Thursday and is due in on a Tuesday. The activity sheet is stuck into your child's home learning book. It is an expectation that all children complete the tasks set within this time. 

All of the children will have their PE lessons on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. However, sometimes plans change, so we would ask that children have their PE kit in school every day please. For the colder months this can include jogging bottoms.

Please make sure your child’s water bottle is in school every day and that their name is written clearly on the bottle. Please provide children with a SOFT pencil case containingwriting pencils, handwriting pens, whiteboard pens, large glue sticks, a pink, green and purple biro along with a ruler, sharpener, rubber and their school reading book/reading record.
