Welcome back!

Welcome back!


We hope you have had a lovely Christmas break, and a happy new year; we hope you are all refreshed and ready to work hard this term.


This half term we will be learning:


Group 1 will be focusing on coordinates, reflection, translation, decimals and percentages. Group 2 will be focusing on deepening their understanding on fractions.


We will be using the book Coming to England by Floella Benjamin, to create narratives and also a biography. We will continue to develop our grammar and punctuation understanding and using parenthesis, colons, semi-colons and understanding the subject verb agreement in our writing.


This term we will be reading Skellig by David Almond. We encourage the children to read every evening and to record this in their reading record; these will be checked every morning.


We will be learning about how we see, looking at how light travels and how that helps us see. We also are going to look at how light can be refracted.


The big question we are looking at is, ‘What do Christians believe Jesus did to ‘save’ people?’


We will be investigating, and researching why have people migrated over time?


PE will be taught on a Monday afternoon this term. Please ensure your child/children have the correct PE kit for this session. We will be learning the skills of hockey; this will be outside, so children will need to ensure they have outdoor kit. Mrs Smith will teach this.


We are continuing working with the North Yorkshire Music Hub and this will be on a Thursday morning. We are so proud of how the children have developed their skills and how determined they are to improve. Keep practicing at home.


Dreams and goals is the area we are focusing on this half term.


In French, we will be learning the words for different weathers and also being able to use these in sentences to describe the weather in places. We will also be learning directional vocabulary.


Homework will continue to be given on a Friday and will be handed in on the following Thursday. Children are awarded a Dojo when their homework is completed and handed in on time. We aim to mark the homework and hand it back, so you can look over any corrections.


We would like to thank you all for your continued support.

If you have any queries, Miss Davis and Miss Harrison are available before or after school or you can contact us on our emails.
