Summer B Curriculum
Welcome Class 5 to our summer term 2021
Welcome back class 5. It is the start of our summer term and we have lots to do. We shall continue to have a big push with our maths and English learning. In particular, we shall be doing lots of reading and writing but also aiming to finish some of our geography work about the UK (learning about ‘Where we live’) whilst also focusing on subjects like DT and science. Our DT topic is going to see class 5 designing and making their own cushion covers. We may find that we have some talented sewers as well as talented artists in our class! In science we shall be learning about forces and magnets and in the second half of the term we shall focus on plants. It’s going to be a busy but fun packed term.
The school day
During the summer term, Class 5 will continue to come into school at 8.50am through the bottom door and will finish at 3:10pm. Class 5 is still part of Bubble 2 alongside classes 4 and 6. Please continue to wear a facemask when you are on site and keep the limit to one adult collecting, if possible. If you have any questions or queries please get in touch via Showbie or the class email address:
The use of Showbie will continue, so it is vital the children check the app daily for any announcements and updates. Homework is being posted on Showbie at the beginning of each week and consists of reading, spelling and one other subject, for the moment.
Uniform and PE Kits
Please ensure that any item that your child brings into school, is sufficiently labelled with their name and class, as it is very tricky matching jumpers etc with owners especially during the summer months when such items are regularly taken off. Please also remember pupils can bring in a personal pencil case, a water bottle, sun cream/hat and PE Kit. Now the weather is getting warmer and brighter, we are doing lots of outdoor PE.
Please could we ask that children bring in inhalers etc if they are needed, especially as we will be outdoors more and doing lots of running around.
At school, we begin learning to write in Reception/EYFS and use a teaching method called 'Talk for writing' until a child's final year in year 6. It is such a crucial part of learning how to write for all year groups.
I have attached three new story units below that you may like to use to support your childs oral and written retelling of stories
The Year 2 units are called:
The Magical Teaching Box
Rainbows, Rainbows everywhere!
The Elves and the Shoe Maker
The Year 3 Units are called:
A Tale of Stone Trolls
Journey to the Jungle
The Truth about Trolls
It would be lovely if you could listen to your child read these stories or even read these to your child and ask them the questions along the way. I am sure Miss Kane would love to see some video clips or photographs of the children in class 5 completing some of these wonderful stories and activities.
A huge thank you for all that you are doing to support your child's home learning
Here are parent friendly guides for the Mathematics skills which are taught in Year 2 and 3. We are hoping you will find these useful to support any additional Maths work you are doing with your child during the school closure.
