Summer Term 2018
Welcome to 5E's class page.
This term our connector is
'The Isles of Diversity '.
This term we are learning about the British Isles. With a strong focus on geography, we will explore the physical and human features of England , Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The children will have an opportunity to research about areas that may particularly interest them.
We are focusing on the genre of myths and legends. Do share any myths and legends that you may know from your home country. The children are very welcome to bring in any books or pictures about these stories.
Geography will be embedded throughout the topic, enabling the children to develop an in-depth understanding of our country. They will extend their knowledge of the functions of an atlas.
In maths we are extending our learning about angles. We will then move onto the conversion of measurements, including time. This can be tricky for children so please ensure your child has lots of opportunity to tell the time and calculate how long it is until future activities.
In PE we will be improving our hockey and cricket skills. Please do ensure your child has their full kit every Tuesday as I do want every child to be able to participate.
We aim to make the homework as discursive as possible (based on having a discussion) to help the children improve their spoken skills so please do help them and join in the conversation.
As ever, I am always keen to hear any news or concerns you may have; it's important to me that your child feels happy so please catch me at the beginning or end of the day if you need to speak to me.
