SummerTerm 6 2017 Beech Class newsletter

We will continue to read and use ‘A Boggle at Bewilderwood’ by Tom Blofeld as the text in some of the literacy lessons, especially to inspire the creation of adventure stories.  We will continue to work hard on developing reading comprehension skills using a variety of texts.  The children will be using their spelling and grammar knowledge to improve their writing. The children will be continuing to extend their writing using paragraphs, a variety of punctuation, and engaging language.  They will be writing newspaper reports and shape poems.

The children will be using their skills mental and written addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in a variety of ways including investigations and problem solving.  The children will be learning about the links between fractions, decimals and percentages.  They will continue to practice their multiplication and number bonds knowledge (do please practice at home). By the end of this term we expect the children to know all of their times tables in order to be able to access the year 4 curriculum.

Our topic this term will be children in history.  This will begin with our trip to Kent Rural Life where we will be looking at children during World War 2.  The children will be learning about what it might have been like to be young at different stages of history.
