Term 5 Overview

This term, we are learning about habitats and lifecycles of plants and animals. We are learning about the local environment, particularly the Cuckmere Haven area, which we are visiting next month. In English, we will be studying nature poetry, including William Wordworth’s famous poem “Daffodils”, as well as looking at explanation text and reports.  In dance, the children will be looking at “Les Miserables”, the book we studied in Term 4.  In Maths, our focus this term will be on written calculations and problem solving methods, as well as revising topics covered so far.

Please find a copy of the new Term 5 homework wheel in the resources. Maths homework will be set by the class teacher every Friday, either on mymaths online or with a worksheet. Children should also learn their weekly spellings and times tables, as well as reading for 30 minutes every night. Please make sure your child’s reading is recorded in their reading record books (grey books) and signed.
