Our class topic, for this half term is ‘Space Odyssey’, which is a science based topic.  During this topic, we will study, learn about and develop our understanding of the Solar System: its planets, moons, why we have day, night and seasons (in Science), and the historical nature of the Space Race (in Topic).

Through RE, the key question we will be exploring is: ‘What would Jesus do?’

In English, we will be continuing to read the book: Wolf Brother from where we will be doing chapter summary work. This will be alongside reading comprehension activities twice a week. Spellings will continue to be tested on a Friday morning. Our writing focus will be through 'Twisted fairy tales'...

We will be focussing on decimals and percentages and starting to review algebra in Maths for this half term. Froggy maths will continue on a Friday morning.

Please see the links to the topic overview, the topic fact sheet and a copy of our class's Spring Term 2020 newsletter. 

Homework: This will continue to be via the CGP books with supplementary practise using Education City. Both year groups will be expected to complete the relevant sections (as shown below). Pupils should mark it prior to a ‘homework’ briefing on a Friday morning.

On a Friday, if the children have any areas to discuss, we will go through the week’s homework to discuss approaches and areas of uncertainty. Please ask the children to come and see me should they have any concerns or queries with their homework that need my attention sooner….

For this half term, PE will be on a Thursday afternoon. It will be trampoline activities for the 6 weeks to be held at THOA. Transport will be provided by THOA and through staff cars. PE kit is required to be in school every day so, that should a change in the timetable occur, the children are prepared.

All the children need a water bottle, in school, which is filled with fresh water on a daily basis (named) and a named waterproof coat, ideally with a hood, so that children can go out to play whatever the weather!

Here’s to a great 2nd Spring Half Term 2020!
