Spring Term 2020

The topic this term is ‘To Market! To Market!’ The children will use a variety of methods (e.g. maps, Google earth, globes and internet research) to find out about local markets and markets all over the world. They will also visit Oswestry market to buy fresh vegetables in preparation for soup making. They will research where fruits and vegetables come from and look at seasonal weather patterns in such places.  They will locate the 4 countries of the UK on a map and will locate the capital cities and google their markets . We will learn about the history of Oswestry market; how it has changed and why. In Music, they will learn songs about markets (Let's go to market... ) and will chant rhymes (To market, to market ...) and will experiment with changing rhymes and songs. In Art they will create a sketchbook and practise using the media of print to explore fruit patterns. They will look at famous artists such as Arcimboldo, Marino Petro and Clina Polloni. In Design Technology, the children will explore vegetable soups and will design, make and  evaluate their own soup. The children will regularly use computers and will learn how to stay safe when using the internet, by following the SMART rules.

 

 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding anything, please feel free to write a comment in the home link book or pop into school and speak to any of us. Over the year, we will be using this webpage to post useful and important information, such as home learning, useful websites and photos.

 

We encourage children/parents to record their reading with a brief summary of what has been read.  

Timetable

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

 

PE: Wednesdays and Thursdays - All children need to make sure they have their P.E kit in school. 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 wear for this.

 

Spelling Test: Thursday - Children will be given 12 spellings to learn every week. They will follow the LOOK, COVER, WRITE, CHECK method to help them learn their spellings.

Home learning: please click on the link below for further guidance on your maths and reading activities. If you require any additional Big Maths worksheets, or support, please let us know via the home link book and we endeavour to answer your queries as soon as possible. 

 

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.

 

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 spellings. 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. The link is www.spellzone.com

 

Many Thanks

Mrs Cherrington and Mrs Jones

 

At the bottom of the page, we have added some useful websites for the children to play on. Please let us know of any websites that you would like me to add to this page.

Enjoy!
