Welcome to Topaz Class
Miss Londors and Mrs Bishop are looking forward to helping the children with their learning. We hope you had a lovely Summer and that you enjoyed the rest!
We have lots of fantastic things to look forward to this term.
Our topic is ‘World War 2’ and we will be starting to understand the key aspects of the War, through History, Geography, Art and Design and Technology.
In writing, we will be exploring Diaries, using story making to support our understanding and help us to write our own! 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 place value and move on to exploring 3 digit numbers. We will also explore all the different methods for adding, subtracting and multiplying and dividing [see our topic plan below for the full list!].
Science will be about exploring Light and electricity, looking at how we see light, how shadows change and different types of electricity including making our own circuits.
In PE we will be doing Netball outdoors and Real PE, which is skills and games based.
Reminders for the year:
Homework goes out on a Friday and is expected in on a Wednesday- this will be alternate maths and writing homework. 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 spelling challenges to earn spelling badges.
Topic homework is set once a term and is an optional homework.
PE for Autumn 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, mathletics and weekly set homework 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!
