Dear Parent/ Carer
During term 4 we are still lucky enough to have a third year teaching student working with us, we will be covering the following topics:
Literacy: We will be studying stories from another culture, thinking about plots, settings and characters, along with nouns, pronouns, dialogue and action and vivid descriptions.
Numeracy: We will be looking at dividing 2 and 3 digit numbers by single digit numbers using remainders and fractions, coordinates in all four quadrants, finding the mean of a few small numbers, solving word problems and finding fractions of amounts.
Science: This half term our topic for science is Solids and liquids. We will be sorting materials into liquids and solids, melting solids to make liquids and sieving and filtering to separate solids and liquids.
ICT: We will be continuing our work with data handling and starting to think about how to control screen turtles. We are going to use repeat commands and command procedures in Logo and start to consider animation.
Geography: We will be looking at Chembakolli, which is a village in India. Finding out where it is and what it is like in India. We will then be thinking about farming and crops, education and housing.
Art/DT: We will be creating money containers, using sewing techniques to decorate the finished items.
PSHE: Understanding oneself as a person, considering aggressive assertive & passive behaviours and using a fight, flight and a thinking response are the topics this half term.
The following homework will be given most weeks: Spellings, Numeracy, Science, Times Tables and Reading. Each piece should take no longer than half an hour.
I hope this will give you a further insight into your child’s education. If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
