English

We are starting Summer term looking at ‘Lila and the secret of rain’ as a whole class text. We will be reading and looking at the text in-depth to help build our reading, comprehension and writing skills. This will build up to writing our own version of the story, with our own ideas included. We will also be looking at explanation texts and poetry. We will continue our Guided Reading sessions, which focuses on comprehension and word recognition.

 

Reading

We would like your children to read at least three times a week at home, more if possible. We have a reward system in place where your child will be able to get a raffle ticket, every time they bring in their book and have read. Raffle tickets will be drawn daily and children will receive a reward. If you could ask your children questions about the story they have read, it will help with their reading comprehension.

 

Maths

The children will continue to cement their understanding of the number system, focusing on the four main operations; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. This term we will be applying our reasoning skills to help us solve problems of all varieties.

Topic

Our topic focus this term is looking at The Seaside. We will be taking a geographical look at the coastal and seaside areas within the United Kingdom, focusing on Blackpool and how it compares to Chorley. We will be looking at both past and present trips to the seaside, as we research seaside holidays in the past.

 

Homework

Homework will be sent out every Friday and due in the following Thursday of the following week. This consists of Maths and Topic based homework (some of which requires you to show your creative side, the children love it!).

 

Spellings rules and phonics are taught throughout the week during Star Spelling. There will be a spelling test every Friday. Spellings will be sent home every Monday, to be learnt for the test that week.

 

P.E

Our P.E lessons are on Monday and Tuesday. This term we will focus on cementing our dance and fundamental movement skills, ready for sports day. We will be looking to work on our running, jumping, hopping, skipping, throwing and catching. Please make sure that your child has their full indoor/outdoor P.E kit in school labelled correctly. Also, please make sure that your child has taken out their earrings or tape is applied prior to school.
