Welcome to the autumn term in Emerald class!
In literacy we are linking our writing to our topic of the Stone Age. We will be finding out lots of information. We will also do slow writing once a week where we will be learning even more grammatical features. Spelling will be taught on a weekly basis, with the children having these spellings to learn for homework. They will be tested on these the following week.
In numeracy, we will continue to build on place value and the four operations. We will also be learning how to find 1000 more and 1000 less than a number. The children are tested weekly on their times tables. Some children, however, still do not know all of their times tables, please take the time to get your child to practice at home so they are not held back from their learning.
In science we are looking at sound, how it travels and how we hear. We are very fortunate to have Mrs Glenholme from St Georges coming in once a fortnight to do exciting experiments.
In PE we are learning hockey and cheerleading. Please make sure your child has an indoor PE kit, especially a warm outdoor kit.
Finally, our topic is the Stone Age. We will be learning when it happened and where there is still evidence today. We will be having an immersive experience day at Wildwood craft, which will really bring our learning to life!
Please feel free to pop in at the end of the day if you have any questions,, my door is always open!
