Hello and welcome back to school for the summer term! I am really excited to get stuck into this year with the children in Class 10 and I know the new year will be amazing. Below is some information on what we are covering over this autumn term that you might find useful.
During PSHE, the children will be thinking about all the ways in which why they are special.
This term in maths, we are going to be focusing on place value, and the four operations. Like last year, we will be following the White Rose Hub scheme and embedding the learning further with plenty of opportunities to reason and problem solve. We will also be practising times tables regularly using Times Tables Rockstars and Superhero Times Tables.
In English, we will finish reading the fabulous novel of 'Goodnight Mister Tom' based on WW2. The book follows the story of a young boy called William and his life as an evacuee with his host parent - Mister Tom.
This year, we will be doing P.E. on Monday and we will be doing all P.E. sessions outside when possible. The children will be required to come to school in their P.E. kits (white plain t-shirt and dark shorts/joggers and trainers). In cases of bad weather, we will be doing P.E. in the hall. Children are not allowed to P.E. barefoot therefore we have asked children to have a pair of plimsolls in school for indoor P.E.
Our science topic this term is Electricity. For this learning, the children will learn about the differences and compare a variety of circuits and gain and understanding as can be mixed, dissolved, reversibly and irreversibly changed.
For Spring 1 and 2, our topic is WW2. Within our topic, we will be exploring the influence and significance of different countries relating to the war and the locality of these countries in comparison to one another.
This term, we will be focusing on e-safety within our computing lessons and how whilst the internet can be a wonderful place, there are also some dangers that come with it. We will also be using the iPad to research within computing lessons and other lessons.
