This term, we will be busy preparing for our SATs with morning booster classes from 8:15am. These will cover maths, reading and spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPaG).
Our topic this term is 'Brave New World', which will cover the history of the Industrial Revolution. We will be looking at pre and post images of production lines, machines and transport around this time in order to make comparisons and consider significant changes.
In maths, we will continue to follow Singapore Maths. We will be studying geometry, position and movement and data handling, which will build upon our previous knowledge and require us to apply this in our work. Arithmetic performance has improved throughout the year, however we would like your continued support with multiplication and division facts, as these are vital across all aspects of maths.
On the run up to SATs we will be studying 'King Kong' by Anthony Browne, where we will be focusing on grammar, for example sentence structure and tenses. After SATs we will move onto reading 'Rooftoppers' by Katherine Rundell. We will study the book carefully to continue to stimulate our writing, as this will be an ongoing focus for our end of year writing assessments in June.
Peter and Marcus (our visiting South African cricket coach) will continue to deliver multi-sport sessions, with a focus on cricket. We look forward to entering the cricket tournaments in May and June to show off all of the skills we have learnt so far.
As the children will sadly be leaving us at the end of the summer term, staff from the local high schools will visit us to support their transition. Children will also have the opportunity to visit their new school and an outside theatre company will be coming to deliver a 'Moving Up' performance.
We look forward to all of the celebrations post SATs – party day, pound-grow, Robinwood and lots more!
