Our curriculum focus for this term:

In Reading we are focusing on setting up our routines for the Reading Block. We are looking at a range of comprehension strategies including finding the main idea and expanding our vocabulary by looking into word etymology.

In Writing we are revisiting and building on our understanding of the writing process, including incorporating the 6 + 1 Traits of Writing into each piece of writing that we do. We will also be analysing the language features and structure of Factual Recounts and Narratives, leading into creating our own.

In Maths, we will be spending the term focusing on Number and Place Value including investigations that will allow students to build on skills to use when working with the 4 operations. 

Throughout Topic this term we are looking at “Who am I?” with a specific focus on Health and Wellbeing. This topic will also include a session on puberty, run by an outside agency.

Please feel free to pop into our classrooms anytime!
