Other Topic information:

We will be focusing on our recovery curriculum the first part of this term. This means a higher concentration of reading opportunities, writing for real purposes and revisiting Year 4 Maths and English objectives to ensure we try and fill gaps before racing ahead too quickly. Therefore topic sessions will be taught as cross curricular, via other core subject. 

READING: reading for enjoyment, for accuracy, for speed and for full understanding are all important facets of reading. I encourage every child to read at home as often as possible, including a wide range of material. This can be newspapers, magazines, online fact sheets, researching non-fiction information as well as traditional fiction stories. It would help your child immensely if they were encouraged to read at home regularly.
