Summer Term

Welcome to the summer term! We are looking forward to lots of exciting learning with you this term. 

Our PE days will be Wednesday and Thursday so please remember to come to school in PE kit on those days.

Our Learning

This Term

In Maths we will be continuing our learning on fractions, focusing on equivalent fractions and fractions of amounts. We will then move onto decimals and learn about tenths and hundredths.  
 

In our writing lessons this term we will be exploring News Reports. The texts that we will write will link to our class novel Kensuke's Kingdom and will develop skills needed for journalistic writing such as headlines and quotations.

 

In curriculum lessons we will be focusing on geography and learning lots about the features of mountains and rivers. We will be doing Health and Well being in PSHE, with a focus on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In music we will be learning about pulse and rhythm, different musical notes and how to play simple tunes.

 

In PE, we will have a coach in on a Wednesday afternoon and will be learning cricket skills as well as competing in the Berkshire Virtual School Games.
