Christmas activities for Friday 18th December
Hello and welcome back for the spring term! I am really excited to get stuck into this term 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 spring that you might find useful.
During PSHE, the children will be thinking about their goals and aspirations and the different pathways or steps needed to achieve those goals.
This term in maths, we are going to be focusing on decimals, fractions and percentages alongside learning the properties of different 2D and 3D shapes. Like last term, 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 'The Explorer' based in the Amazon by Katherine Rundell. The children have engaged with the book brilliantly and are eager to know what happens next and how the story ends! Once we have finished 'The Explorer' we will be reading a short novel called 'Moonlight Hare.'
This year, we will be doing P.E. on Monday and we will be doing the P.E. sessions outside as 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. We will also be doing the daily mile on Wednesday and Fridays so children will need to come into school with trainers on these days.
Our science topic this term is Properties and Changes of Materials. For this learning, the children will learn about the differences and compare a variety of materials and gain and understanding as to how materials can be mixed, dissolved, reversibly and irreversibly changed.
For Spring 1 and 2, our topic is Richard III. Within our topic, we will be exploring the influence of Richard III and the locality of Leicester/Leicestershire using grid references on maps.
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.
