Our learning this term...

 

Lower Band Term 5

I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter break and enjoyed time relaxing in the glorious sunshine! Thank you all as always for your ongoing support- particularly those of you who joined us to help with cooking lessons and our smoothie making.

We have a very exciting and jam packed term ahead! We will be thinking mainly about magnets and forces as part of our science project but will also be learning about Escher in art, The Promise as our core text for English and we will be learning tennis skills and circuit training.

Year 4 will also receive a 10 week Ukulele project where every child will learn how to play a series of songs and this will be led by the local authority and supported by our Year 4 teachers (please note that Mrs Groves’ Year 4 pupils will be split between 4GE and 4KR for these sessions). Ukulele lessons will take place each Friday from 3rd May and will culminate in a concert to the school and parents on Friday 5th July- more information to follow.

Please note that Monday 6th May is a bank holiday and term ends on Friday 24th May 2019. We return to school for the final term on Monday 3rd June.

Homework

 

Reading - a reminder that children should be reading at home at least five times a week. We will be checking reading records every week this term to ensure that children are reading regularly and that they are having opportunities to discuss their reading with an adult. Your comments are vital to ensuring we can see what is happening at home so we can work out ways to help even more at school. The Lower Band houses will be rewarded for at least two comments per week with house points in assembly this term. At the end of this newsletter, there are some helpful prompts for questions that you can ask your child when reading. Thank you for your support in helping your child to make the best possible progress in reading.

Maths – your child should be logging onto DoodleMaths regularly and practicing their times tables frequently.

Spellings – spellings are set every Tuesday and tested the following Monday. Lists will be sent home for the whole term this week and are also available on our website.
