SummerTerm 5 2018 Beech Class newsletter

Welcome back, we hope you all had a chocolate filled Easter holiday!

In English this term we will be focusing on persuasive language and creating pieces of persuasive writing. We will also be studying different playscripts and the children will be creating their own in groups. Lastly we will explore newspaper articles identifying key features and becoming familiar with the layout to help the children write their own. Much of this will be linked to our class book ‘The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe’. We will be returning to many of the Grammar skills that we have learnt this term and will be applying these skills in our general writing.

This term in Maths we will be continuing to study fractions and practice our skills in addition, multiplication, division and subtraction.  Mrs Brook will continue to teach shape, space and measure skills. The children will be developing their problem solving knowledge and confidence through all Maths lessons. 

Our topic for this term is ‘Marvellous Maps’. We will be discovering a wide variety of maps ranging from ordinate survey maps and tube maps to picture maps and location maps. I am very enthusiastic about this topic and hope the children will develop a range of geographical skills during this topic that they can apply to everyday life.

 During this term in Science we are going to be learning about ‘Plants’, this is an interactive topic and will be great to explore the local area and begin to identify the name and parts of the plant.

Other important information…..PE is on a Wednesday morning with our Premier Sports coach and Thursday morning with Miss Harris. However, please ensure that PE kits are in school every day as we may sometimes change the timetable or do additional lessons. Any children without PE kits or appropriate footwear will not be able to participate in the lesson.

All homework is due in on Mondays please. We will continue to suggest children practise their times tables at home as well as becoming confident with their number bonds to 20.

If the children have anything they would like to show to the rest of the class, related to any of our class topics e.g Plants or maps, they can bring it in on Fridays to present during ‘show and tell’ in the afternoon. This helps develop their confidence in performing as well as allowing them to share their knowledge surrounding the topics.
