As the year races by, what a lovely moment to reflect on how much progress the children in Class Dahl have made. They continue to impress with being ready to learn, respectful and kind.
This term in maths, we will be focusing on fractions, money, measuring weights, lengths and capacity, time, shape and space and then finishing with statistics. Anything you can do at home to support with these topics (cooking, building, crafting, reading the time) will help your child to progress quicker.
In English, we are turning our attention to narratives, some information writing to link with Science and then a block on Michael Rosen and Roald Dahl poetry, focusing on the spoken word.
In Science, we are looking forward to STEM week in mid-May. In the meantime, we will be starting at topic on the Human Body, naming bones, organs and looking at nutrition. We then go on to study plants and hope to visit the Steart Marshes in Bridgewater to explore local habitats. In PSHE, we move onto Relationships and then Changing Me.
Our R.E. topic for the term will be Islam and we are hoping to link up with Riverside (Our School link) to speak to some of the pupils who follow this faith.
Our DT work on bridges will culminate with a trip to the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol and, in Art, we will be studying Piet Mondrain, followed by some self-portraiture.
After half term, we will start our study on Elizabeth Fry, a pioneering Victorian who was passionate about social reform.
The children have now been set up on Spelling Frame, an online spelling programme, which will be tailored towards their ability. Games are interactive and fun! Keep an eye out in Reading Records for your child’s log in details should they wish to do any at home.
Computing is coding (using Scratch) and making an e-Book.
Finally in P.E, it’s our turn to swim (on Tuesday afternoon) and then Inspire will make the most of the good weather, by leading a block on athletics and cricket over the Summer.
What a busy term!
