In our English lessons we will be using a range of texts, as well as stimuli such as images and film, to inspire children’s writing. The children’s literacy skills will be built upon, and applied, in topic lessons too. During lessons, children will write a variety of different texts, for different purposes, including a short story, suspect statements and letters of application.
In maths the children will be covering a range of topics such as shapes, handling data and measures, calculating and securing number facts. The children will now be applying this to real life problems as well as experiencing SATs style questions.
This term our topic is ‘Hillstone Detective Agency.’ Throughout this very practical topic, the children will be completing a range of scientific experiments to solve a number of mysteries.
Each week, the children will also take part in SPaG, RE, French and Hillstone Life Skills lessons.
Reading regularly and questioning the children about the story and characters will help improve their reading. Asking the children to make predictions and inferences is a higher level skill which measures their understanding of the book.
Your child also has access to a paid SPaG website where different tasks will be set to consolidate learning in lessons. Please refer to the homework diaries for their individual log ins.
There are a number of ways to help your child improve in maths. Times tables games, such as TTRS, can be fun and tables are essential to understanding many areas of maths. It is essential for them to know all of their times tables up to 12 x 12. Involve them when discussing cost, time, distance or any other matters involving money.
