National Poetry Day - Thursday 7th October 2021

Today, we memorised, rehearsed and performed a poem called Pirate Pete by James Carter.

 

This half term our topic is called Legions and Tribes, where we will be learning about the Romans in depth and will be using our topic to bring lots of our learning together across the curriculum. In history, we will learn about the Roman timeline and when they invaded Britain, we will understand how the Roman army was so successful and the life of a Roman soldier. We will also learn about the Romans' contributions to science and technology and what adavancements they brought to Britain. We will use our topic to learn about Roman gods and goddesses to write our own Roman myth in English. In Science, our topic is 'Sound', where children wil learn to identify how sounds are made; recognise that vibrations from sounds travel through a medium to the ear; they will find patterns between the pitch of a sound and features of the object that produced it; find patterns between the volume of a sound and the strength of the vibrations that produced it and recognise that sounds get fainter as the distance from the sound source increases. In Maths, we will be learning Place Value, Rounding, Addition and subtraction - mental fluency, addition written methods, Multiplication and division facts. So a very busy half term!

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.
