In Maths this term, we will be learning number and place value, as well as shapes. We will also be working hard to learn our times tables. This will start with us recapping the 10, 5 and 2 times table, to then progress on to the 4, 8 and 3 times table as the year progresses.
In English this term, we will begin by taking part in a Viking Initiation Test, inspired by the famous 'How To Train Your Dragon' book series, to create our individual Viking identities and write a character description. The children will also be using inspiration from Arthur and the Golden Rope to write their very own adventurous Viking myths. We also have a very destructive invasion to take part in, in which the children will be writing a diary about their humble and vicious actions. Our class books this term will be How to be a Viking, Arthur and the Golden Rope and The Last Viking. We will be using these books during our guided reading sessions and to also inspire and ignite our creative writing in English.
In Science this term, we will be exploring light and investigating how we can use shadows to scare off any potential enemies that us Viking may have.
During our PE lessons, we will be learning the skills of Rugby and playing a Viking Castle Game. During these lessons, we will also be exploring the importance of warming up and how to stay fit and healthy as a Viking warrior.
Cheery Class – Reading books.
This Friday (11th September) the children will be given their new reading level books. Some children will be bring home books that are lower bands than they had last year. This could be for a number of reasons. Therefore it is vital that children take the time to read at home. Reading with parents, careers or Grandparents needs to be recorded in their home journals for Miss Doyle to see.
Thank you for your understanding and readiness to help.
