Term 4 Overview
Welcome back after a cold (and slightly wet!) half term.
Our topic this term is named ‘Journey into the Jungle!’ We will be learning about jungles and rainforests; with a particular focus on the habitats, ecosystems and the flora and fauna contained in these compelling parts of the world.
In English, we are reading ‘Amy Wild: Amazon Summer’ by Helen Skelton. We will follow Amy’s adventures as she helps her Auntie Marg to rediscover her love of photography deep in the rainforest of Peru. As both of these characters are somewhat scatty and clumsy, things are bound to take some unexpected twists along the way…
For Maths, we will be focusing on measurement: converting units, perimeter, area and volume, as well as shape and ratio and proportion. As we are moving closer towards the SATS, we will also be continually practising arithmetic, as well as solving a range of reasoning problems across the whole Maths Curriculum.
Homework will continue to be for the children to bring in their revision guides once a week; allowing the class teacher to check progress and identify any further gaps to work on in class. The children still need to learn their weekly spellings and to read to ensure that they can quiz regularly and effectively.
