We are a mixed class predominately Key Stage 2. We have 7 young and aspiring boys ready for adventure!
We have Katy Griffin, the class teacher as well as Catherine Bush and Jade Murphy who are learning support assistants. This year we are determined to learn lots through play, trips and visits and class based learning.
Our topic this term is “Crime and Justice”. We will learn about the development of the system of Courts, police and different appraoches to punishment from the Anglo-Saxon times to modern day. We are hoping the children will also have the opportunity to visit Warwickshire Justice Centre where they can see a court and meet a real Judge. We are also hoping to conduct an interview with a local police officer.
In maths, we will be learning basic maths skills on place value. As part of this unit, we will place 3 and 4 digit numbers on a number line. We will also learn how to convert numbers into roman numerals and learn to round numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. During individual work time we will also work on times tables.
In English this term, we will read “How to train your dragon” by Cressida Cowell. As part of this unit, we will design their own book covers and dragons. We will also learn to summarise key facts/events from the story and contribute to class discussions on how language, structure and presentation contribute to meaning. We will also complete handwriting and spellings on a weekly basis.
P.E is every Thursday so please ensure your child has their kit. We will send out newsletters every half term so please keep an eye out. They will be uploaded to the website. Should you wish to receive a paper copy, please let the office know. You will also receive a curriculum grid every half term, this outlines what your child will be learning in school. Although we do not set formal homework, supporting your child with times table, spellings and reading will always help to accelerate progress.
