This term the children will be exploring the planet's coldest lands....vast wilds and hostile territories - incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. We will research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and ecosystems, and compose evocative poems about the Northern Lights. We truly are going on a great adventure.
Our reading focus will be Narnia. We will read about four adventurers who step through a wardrobe door into the land of Narnia - a world enslaved by the power of the White Witch. When almost all hope is lost, the return of the Great Lion, Aslan, signals a great change...and a great sacrifice.
Curriculum Map - Frozen Kingdom
Please make sure the children have their P.E. kits in school all week. We have P.E. on a Monday and Friday. The children will need warm clothes as we will be heading outside this term as much as possible.
Reading and Homework
Please ensure the children are reading daily at home. Below is a link outlining 100 books recommended for all children to read before leaving primary school:
Which one's have you read? Which will you aim to read before Christmas?
Maths homework needs to be completed weekly. After discussions with parents I will be handing out arithmetic style questions for the children. They will receive 36 questions a week, the expectation is that they only do this for half an hour (this is the allocated time they will have during SATs).
Additionally, the children will be given a SPaG or reading paper this term to complete weekly. This should take no longer then 45 minutes. This will be in place of their topic homework. If you have any questions or concerns about this please feel free to ask.
