''A pair of star-cross'd lovers take their life''
This half term we are reading Romeo and Juliet, the famous play by William Shakespeare. We will be learning how to write evocative descriptive settings.We will also use our knowledge of the characters and plot to write a diary. We will continue to focus on spellings. Please do encourage your child to use Spelling Shed. However, the best way to learn how to spell is by reading, so do ensure your child is reading everyday.
Many children are doing extra groups to help them prepare for Sats. Do ask you child about what they are learning. If you have any questions about these groups, please do ask me.
In addition, many children tell me that they are working their way through the Sats revision books, so well done to them. It will be helpful.
We are learning about electricity and electrical circuits. We will learn how to identify electrical symbols. Practical work will include building simple circuits and carrying rudimentary fault-finding.
All children have log -ins for Spelling Shed and the Times Tables Rock Stars. Both are fun, excellent ways for the children to learn spelling and their times tables so please encourage them to play these games at home.
In maths, we have strong focus on algebra. We will learn how to generate and describe linear number sequences and to express number problems algebraically. We will learn how to devise and identify formulae.
Things to Remember
Every day - Reading books
Wednesday - P.E. kit
The children have individual maths homework, aimed at their level of progression. Do ensure it is done and let us know if they are finding it too easy or difficult.
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.
