Summer Term 2019

The topic this term is ‘The Big Build’ and all of our work will be based around this. Children will look at maps of the world and will research famous bridges in all of the continents They will look at different countries, their capital cities, rivers and oceans. They will compare the structures and materials used for different bridges, including aqueducts and viaducts and will be involved in making their own bridges.  They will learn of the different types of bridges and will learn how to identify types by looking at specific features. They will  investigate a range of  bridges and who the architects were behind the designs. In Art the children will look at  paintings that feature bridges, such as Monet and his famous water lily Impressionist paintings and be involved in exploring the artistic techniques of such artists. They will use a range of resources including Espresso and websites to find out about bridges and people involved with them such as Thomas Telford.  In Music, the children will sing songs relating to bridges and add and explore rhythm by using claves and percussion instruments.

 

Timetable

Here is a useful list of our regular class activities. (Please note that these may change on occasions).
 

PE: Tuesday and Thursday- All children needs to make sure they have their P.E kit in school for this day. Please make sure that all of their P.E kit is labelled. Any children with earrings must be able to remove these for their P.E session or they may not be able to take part due to health and safety reasons. On days where children do not have P.E, they will be taking part in 'The Daily Mile' and will need appropriate foot ware for this.

Homework: We always give out new homework on a Friday. To give us the opportunity to mark and look at their homework. We ask that all children need to hand in their homework by the following Thursday at the latest.

Spelling Test: Thursday - Children will be given 10 spellings to learn every week. They will follow the LOOK, COVER, WRITE, CHECK method to help them learn their spellings.

 

Homelink books: These must be handed in every morning so that we can receive any important messages or to record if your child has read.

 

Reading - If your child has read three times or more a week they will receive a stamp on their reading loyalty card. When a child has 6 stamps, they can exchange this for a loyalty prize. The prizes include colouring at play time, being helper of the day, playing on the pirate ship during lunch time, having an early lunch with their friend and many, many more. 

 

Spellzone - To help encourage spellings, we have set the children up on a program called ‘Spell Zone.’ This is a fantastic program to help children with their spelling. There are lots of different games on spell zone that are set to your child’s ability. Their login and password can be found in the back of their homelink book. Each week, the child who has been on spellzone the most will be rewarded. The link is www.spellzone.com
