English (final half term):
Children will be reading poetry and are expected to learn poems off by heart! They will recite them to small groups or the class.
Our current writing focus is: writing formal texts, such as formal letters, balanced arguments and E-safety rules and criteria.
A challenge will be to use passive verbs and even the subjunctive verb form. Ask your child if they can explain what these are!
SCIENCE: thank you Charlie for your wonderful presentation about:
Children will still have some homework linked to their current English, mathematics and science focus.
They should continue to learn their tables in preparation for secondary school and they all have usernames and passwords for the popular times tables ROCKSTARS website. https://ttrockstars.com/
Pupils should read daily and record in their reading diary as appropriate - personal response comments with explanations about the reading are preferable to number of pages read and generic expressions, such as 'I liked it.', 'It.was good/boring.'
