2nd Autumn Term 2020
English - Whatever happened to Joe's birthday cake? Find out in our riveting short story containing flashback sequences! Our two other pieces of Big Writing this term tie in with our topic (see below) - a polar explorer's tragic diary entries, and a handy recipe for festive food from around the world!
Spellings – Spellings are handed out on Friday afternoon and the class will be tested on that list the following Friday..
Maths – This half term, we broaden our focus from basic number manipulation to areas of the curriculum as diverse as angles, fractions, coordinates and percentages.
Topic – For our next topic, we will ask the question "Who Wants a White Christmas?" It has some festive elements, particularly as the term draws closer to Christmas, but we also look at the world's snowy regions, the dangers and hardships of those who live with snow, and we answer that age-old question: what actually IS snow?
Homework – Homework is handed out every Friday and is due back by the following Monday. Normally, it will consist of Maths and English (activities taken from a variety of CGP books which the children are expected to take care of).
Reading – Children are expected to read every night. As this cannot currently include a school reading book, we hope you can provide reading material at home.
PE – Our PE day is Monday. Please ensure that your child has a PE kit which consists of: white t-shirt, black shorts/leggings/joggers and pumps/trainers.
