Reading Challenge Books
We had an excellent first half term and I’m looking forward to teaching 5 as we head into winter. Your children had great attendance last half term, so thank you for your support with that. We are going to give you information in this newsletter on what we are learning this term as well as important information such as PE days and trips. Please do come to us with any questions that you have.
This half-term we will be focusing on multiplication and division. The students will learn how to identify multiples and factors of a number, as well as how the recognise and use prime numbers, square numbers and cube numbers.
We’ll be multiplying and dividing numbers (including decimals) by powers of 10 (10, 100, 1000), as well as doing column multiplication of 4 digit numbers. We’ll then bring all this together to do multi-step problems using all four operations later in term.
During this half-term we will be focusing our reading on poetry and these students will have the chance to read and become familiar with The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. We’ll be looking at how to read poetry aloud and learning a range of new vocabulary. Later in the term, we will read and examine The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe
Our writing this term is also based on the above books. We will be using them to develop our skills in writing narratives, setting descriptions, character and figurative language.
Please make sure your child brings in their PE kit on Monday and takes it home on Friday to wash.
PE takes places on Tuesday and Wednesday.
We are all excited about what this term brings! Hope you will all enjoy it!
