Reading Please read with your child on a regular basis and comment in their reading diary. This aids us in school by knowing what the children need to practise (fluency or comprehension).
Spelling Spellings can be accessed on the SpellingFrame website www.spellingframe.co.uk. Your child will be given a username and password and the spellings will be loaded every week to their account. The children should play the games and practise the spellings, then towards the end of the week they will take the spelling test to assess their progress. Please write in their reading record when they have played on SpellingFrame as dojo points will be awarded.
Maths Please reinforce times tables by using Times Table RockStars at home www.ttrockstars.co.uk . The children will have a username and password for this and it is important that they practise several times a week. We will begin with the 2, 3, 4, 5 and 10 times table initially. If you need ideas for other ways to practise, please contact your class teacher.
Project We welcome any extra learning about our topic of ‘miners’. You might want to create a fact file, a story, a model, an experiment, or even some research about our local area. Anything that you create, we cannot wait to see!
Dojo will be used for year group and class messages, so please remember to regularly check the class stories section as well as the private message section. School stories are also used for whole school messages.
Indoor PE will be on Wednesdays and outdoor PE will be on Thursdays. Please ensure that you child is wearing the correct PE uniform (black jogging bottoms/shorts, white t-shirt and a blue Moorhill hoody/school jumper on these days.
Themes & Topics
During the Autumn Term, we will travel back in time to the Stone Age for our topic ‘Meet the Flintstones’.
Children will use a range of sources, including archaeology, to establish an understanding of British history. They will be look at early settlements and how people used to live. There will be opportunities to explore the art of weaving.
‘Tomb Raiders’ is our topic for the Spring Term.
The children will travel (virtually) on the river Nile to find out why it has been so valuable to the Egyptians. They will be use atlases and maps and develop their geographical vocabulary. They will use a variety of resources, including the internet, to answer their questions, and they will create a moveable mummy.
