Spring 2021

The Spring term curriculum will mainly be focusing on Maths, English, Computing, P.E, R.E and Science. We will also be doing some topic work as well. During these topics we will be focusing on a variety of subjects.
In English we are looking at the book Return, in which we will be writing two different pieces about the book.
In maths we are studying volume and fractions,  and we will be using a variety of resources to help us with this.
In science, our topic this term is habitats, where we will be studying the different habitats of animals and seeing how these change.
In addition we will also be having daily "Time to Talk" sessions in order that we promote good mental health and well being. Time to Talk will give the children an opportunity to discuss some of their own personal viewpoints from lockdown and will give them an opportunity to discuss these with the other children.

Google classroom
We have done lots of work on Google Classroom over lockdown, and now we are coming out of lockdown we will still be using this to help us with our computing and different tasks. 


Your child will receive spellings each week which they will practise both at home and in school ready for a weekly spelling test in school. The children can continue to use TT rockstars to practise their times tables. When the children have been reassessed on Accelerated reader we will start to send reading books home. Please make sure you continue to read with your child each night and sign their communication diary when you have herd them read.
I am also going to give you some url's for great online resources to use at home.

Our P.E. days are a Tuesday and a Friday this term. But remember that because of Active 30 the children will need their P.E. kits everyday.
