Online Reading Record

 

Our topic for Autumn 2 is Water, Water Everywhere. In Geography, we will be learning about the Water Cycle, journey of a river as it flows from the mountains to merge in to the sea, we will be learning about where erosion and deposition occurs along a river, we will be locating some famous world rivers using an atlas and will be debating about the positive and negative effects of human use of rivers. 

In Science, we will be learning in depth about the states of matter and will be conducting exciting investigations and experiments to aid our understanding. We will also be creating our own mini water cycle in a cup!

In English, we will be exploring the books 'Arthur and the Golden Rope' and 'The King who Banned the Dark' and we will be doing some creative writing based on these.

In Maths, we will continue to practise our times tables by playing games in class. We will also continue with our weekly times tables test, which the children enjoy a lot. Hence, it is very important that they practise their times tables at home too. Apart from this, we will be learning multiplication and division, integar scaling and correspondence problems and learning the most efficient way to multiply and divide numbers by 10, 100 and 1000.

 

Look at our exciting learning! 

HOW YOU CAN HELP AT HOME

 

English

 

Listen to your child read every day for at least 20 minutes. 

 

Log any interesting words the children find in their reading books and encourage them to find out what the words mean, so they are able to use these words in their writing. 

 

Ask your children to write neatly when they do their homework. This should encourage the children to use what they have learnt at school. 

 

Ask your child to keep a diary of any interesting events that happen.

 

Maths

 

Practise their times tables with them up to 12 x 12 and their related division facts - e.g 12 x 12 = 144,  144 divided by 12 = 12.  Please encourage your child to log onto TTRockstars to practise their times tables. Children have been given their login's, however please do not hesistate to contact us should these be misplaced. 

 

Ask your child mental maths questions at home - for example asking the children to work out how much something costs or the change that is needed when shopping.
