Hello everyone

 

Hello all

Sorry it's been a while since I updated the page. Term 5 already! where does the time go?

A short term but a busy one. We have the residential trip on the 16th May, Palmarsh Has Talent and the kids get to go swimming this term....PHEW! Oh and I have organised a music workshop for all of KS2 so listen out for that.

Anyway, all you need to know about this coming term is found below. If you have questions or would like to see more/less information on the class page please free to come and see me or indeed get in touch via email. 

 

Regards

 

Mr Jones

Parents have asked me about homework so I just wanted to explain what will happen. If your child requires some extra support with their learning, they may get some targeted homework, i.e. something they need to practice a little more in order to better understand it. Therefore your child will not receive regular homework, if at all, but I/we would appreciate it if they could be supported by those at home if they do.

Every other Thursday alternating with PE

English - We shall be writing a balanced argument based on the question of whether screen time is making children lazy? Interestingly over 50% of the class believe it does! We shall be reading Kick by Mitch Johnston. A book endorsed by Amnesty International and one which upholds and illuminates children's rights. This will lead into persuasive letter writing.

 

Maths - We shall endeavour to finish our work on fractions before looking at decimal numbers and percentages. From here we move onto geometry (properties of shape).

 

Science - our topic this term will be properties and changes of materials. Lots of experimenting and finding out about different types of materials, what they consist of and how we can alter their states.

 

Curriculum - Geography topic this term. we shall be asking the question, Who are Britain's National Parks for? Do you know how many National Parks there are? Do you know the name of the nearest National Park to us? Perhaps you could ask your child?

 

P.E. - This term the children will be going swimming on a Wednesday morning strating in week 1. Children should bring a towel and appropriate swimming attire. If they have a snack for afterwards that would be great too. Forest School will still take place every other Thursday. Dates for the term can be found further up the class page.
