P.E: It is essential that children have a full kit of white t-shirt and black shorts, including pumps. If we are outside for P.E. they require trainers and can wear jogging bottoms and a sweatshirt if the weather is colder.

This half term our topic is ‘Ancient China’. We will mainly be looking at Chinese myths and fables as part of our English learning. This will be both as part of our reading and our writing sessions. In maths, we will be focusing on place value and making 3 digit numbers as well as recapping on 10 more /less than a number and extending that to 100 more/less. In Topic, we will be looking at the geography of China, including locating it using maps and looking at key features and landmines. The historical side of the topic is focused on the Shang Dynasty, who and what they were and the legacy that they left behind. We will also be using artefacts to show how these can provide clues to the past. In RE we will be looking at the question – What does it mean to be a Hindu in Britain today? and our PSHE lessons will focus on our protective behaviours and early warning signs. Later in the term, we will also begin Spanish lessons.

We are looking to encourage children to read as much as possible so please help to remind your child to read every day and complete a book review to ensure they are understanding what they have read. If you are able to spare any time, volunteers to hear children read would be much appreciated, please contact the office to arrange. PE this term will be swimming on Tuesdays and Rugby on Thursdays so please ensure your child has the appropriate kit. Spellings and times tables questions will be sent home on Thursday and are to be returned to school on Tuesday. Any homework not completed, will mean your child will need to attend homework club during lunchtime to ‘catch up’. Please encourage your child to practise these as much as possible as this helps enormously with their school progress.
