Summer curriculum

 

Maths

 

Our maths learning will focus on:

  • Fractions
  • Time
  • Volume 
  • Temperature

We will also continue to consolidate our knowledge of the 4 operations (addition, subtraction, division and multiplication).

You can use the Numbots programme to support your child's basic fact knowledge.

 

Reading 

 

This term we will complete a novel study of the book ‘Horrid Henry’. We will be exploring different types of themes within the book, whilst developing our clarifying and inference skills particularly when considering the characters’ feelings towards the different types of characters in the book.

Please read with your child every day. You can also use the Reading Eggs programme to support your children’s learning and visit Manor Park Library for a greater range of books.

Remember to record your child’s reading in their R@Homebook. This includes books you read to them. Please talk to your child about what they are reading and remember, reading the same book over and over helps children to develop confidence and fluency in reading.

 Writing

Children will be learning how to write based on real lived experiences. Particularly using our trip to the beach as inspiration. Developing lots of skills including:

  • Using simple and compound sentences.
  • Spelling and handwriting
  • Expanding our writing to a more real-life approach, expressing our thoughts and feelings about our beach trip. 
  • Refining sentence structure and punctuation.

 

Geography

Though our topic ‘Comparing regions of the UK’ we will be learning:

    • To use geographical vocabulary to refer to key physical and human features e.g. Physical: beach, coast, cliff, forest, river, ocean, Human: city, town, village, farm, port, harbour
  • To ask and answer geographical questions e.g. What is this place like?  What is the area used for?
  • To begin to understand that humans have an impact on the environment.

On Thursday 30th June, we are hoping to visit the beach in Southend to conduct fieldwork to support our understanding of different locations. More information to follow.

RE 

We will be exploring different ideas and beliefs through the topic ‘Special Books’ this half term.

Art

Though our topic ‘3D design and sculpture’ we will be learning:

  • To use a range of tools and techniques to create line, texture and pattern in clay.
  • To use slip and joining techniques to combine shapes when working with clay.

We will be linking our learning to our Geography topic, creating models  of London landmarks. 

PSHE

Our themes this term are Relationships and Changing me. Through discussions and in small group work, children will be learning about what constitutes a healthy relationship with friends and family.
