Welcome to Topaz Class
Miss Londors and Mrs Wilmhurst are looking forward to helping the children with their learning. We hope you had a lovely break and that you enjoyed the rest!
We have lots of fantastic things to look forward to this term.
Our topic is ‘Take One Note’ and we will be exploring music and many other subjects through a piece of music.
In writing, we will be exploring chronological reports, using story making to support our understanding and help us to write our own! We will also be writing descriptions, riddles and our own poems. In guided reading, we will be exploring texts and answering comprehension questions about them, using literacy shed video's as a fantastic start to the week to get our brains thinking.
In maths, we will continue to practice written methods for multiplication and division such as bus stop method and expanded column multiplication. We will also explore fractions and begin to add and subtract fractions as well as find equivalent fractions.
In Music we will explore A Bao A Qu by Mason Bates, it is based on an imaginary animal, this will lead the children into designing their own imaginary animal and creating an accompanying piece of music.
In PE we will be doing Gym and Hockey.
Reminders for the year:
Children are expected to read for 10 minutes everyday which will go towards earning a Reading Champ Certificate.
They should also be practising their times tables (3, 4, 6 and 8) and termly spellings.
Spelling challenges are optional but children can earn spelling badges when they have achieved them.
Topic homework is set once a term and is an optional homework.
PE for Spring Term is on a Monday and Friday.
PE Kits should include a white t-shirt, black shorts or jogging bottoms and black daps or trainers, you may want to include a jumper for the great British weather.
Please try to support us by completing all of your child's home learning with them to support their love for learning. Reading, spellings and mathletics are an essential element of a child's development and has a positive impact on your child's progress in all areas of the curriculum!
We look forward to an exciting term ahead!
