Literacy

This half-term in Literacy, we will be exploring a range of fiction and non-fiction genres. We will begin by developing our skills as poets. First we will be writing odes: poems devoted to praising a particular person, animal or thing. After that we will be learning to write kennings and list poems. Following on from this, we will be learning about fairy-tales, rewriting Snow White from the perspective of the evil stepmother. Our grammar focus will be to vary the length of our sentences: using longer sentences for description and short sentences for impact. Finally, we will end the half-term by writing instructions, focusing on our use of conjunctions and prepositions. 

 

For our spellings this half-term we will be looking at the following spelling rules:

Week 1 and 2: ei/eigh/ey words

Week 3: 'ch' sounding k

Week 4: 'ch' sounding sh

Week 5: 'gue' sounding g; 'que' sounding k

Week 6: sc soundings

 

 

Maths

 

This half term, we will be learning about multiples and factors of numbers and we will be multiplying 3 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers using column method.

 

To prepare for the new topic make sure you practise your 6, 7, 8 and 9 times tables over the Christmas holidays.

 

 

 

 

Reading: The Big Read

 This half-term we will be reading 'Hamish and the Gravity Burp' by Danny Wallace. The children will be reading this in class every day, building their reading fluency and decoding skills. As well as reading out loud, they will reflect on the novel's key characters, settings and themes. Over the course of the half-term, they will have opportunities to make their own predictions, share their opinions about key characters, and write simple summaries of what they have read. They will also explore elements of the text through drama and dance.

 

Reading at home

We have a wide range of books to support your child's reading within the school, and we hope this will enable your child to experience a range of authors and styles of books. However, in order to become confident readers, children need to read at home as much as possible. Most children will be responsible for selecting their own reading book and changing these when they are finished. We will be checking regularly to ensure that the children are changing their reading books.

 

IPC

This half-term we will be learning about 'Chocolate'.

 

 

 

Mmmmmm Yummy!

To prepare for the new topic, find out where chocolate comes from and how it is made!

 

Underneath you can find plenty of websites to explore, interactive games to play and even some craft ideas.
