I hope you have all had a wonderful summer and are rested and ready for the Autumn term. I am very much looking forward to the year ahead and seeing all of your 'Extreme Earth' projects!
We have some exciting topics this year, during the Autumn Term, we will be studying Extreme Earth focusing on weather conditions and natural disasters , such as; volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis and tornados. In science we will be classifying plant and animal species as well as grouping organisms and investigating micro-organisms. In art sessions we will create our own version of Hokusai’s ‘Great Wave’.
During literacy, this term we will write weather poems including features, such as; personification, similes, metaphors and onomatopoeia words. We will also be reading, comparing and writing our own descriptions of a storm. After half-term, we will read ‘The Tempest’ and write letters and narratives based upon the text.
In mathematics we will be focusing on; place value, number facts and using a written method to solve addition, subtraction, multiplication and division word problems for the first half-term.
Here are a few notes to help you settle in...
PE lessons with Mr Radley will be on a Thursday afternoon so remember your full outdoor PE kit.
We are currently organising a trip to Shakespeare’s Globe theatre to take part in workshops linking to The Tempest. More information to come soon!
Homework for Maths and Literacy is set on a Friday and should be completed by the following Thursday. The children all now have their own usernames and passwords for MyMaths and The First News Website. If there are any technical problems please let me know.
