This year is "Year of Books" and each class is represented by two reading ambassadors, who have the task of inspiring their peers with a love

of reading.

 

 

William Shakespeare

 

To start this term off the whole school are looking at the works of William Shakespeare. William

Shakespeare was an English poet, playwright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the

English language. The children have been reading Romeo and Juliet and looking at the life of William

Shakespeare.

 

 

 

 

 

Convince Me Maths continues in the Summer Term. Convince Me Maths is

designed to improve progress through using a CPA (Concrete, Pictorial and

Abstract) approach. The model encourages a deeper level of thinking and

broadens children's understanding through higher level questioning.

Additionally 'Big Maths' will be used every Friday to allow children to increase their

mental fluency in addition and subtraction.

 

                                            We have started by looking at graphs. Children are learning to use graphs to read and interpret data. We will

                                            be learning to read scales, follow directions and tell the time to the nearest 15 minutes.  

 

 

In the Summer term we will be covering Hansel and Gretel, Percy the Park Keeper and Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch.

The children will have opportunities to develop their skills through writing

character descriptions, recounts, diary entries and so much more! There will be

opportunities to see the children's work displayed in the classroom and on the

Year of Books display in the cloak room.

 

 

 

 


Our topic is "Flowers and Insects... " and as the title suggests the children will be learning about nature.
