Our Learning

In this unit, we will be learning about the islands of the world, how they are formed, what life is like on some islands, as well as some of the threats to people’s lives and their unique cultures. We will explore how islands range hugely in shape, size, location and climate but that they are all surrounded by water. We will need to be geographers and cartographers as well as artists and musicians. As almost one in ten people on earth live on an island, let’s explore what some islands are like across the globe! Can you imagine what life would be like to live on a small island?

This should be completed with an adult, and children can choose to read their own book, a book from school or on bug club. Adults need to record the reading session in the reading record, alongside a sentence or two about how the read and anything they found tricky. Reading records must be in school every day.

Homework books

Homework books are sent home on a Friday and must be returned to school on a Wednesday. Weekly homework includes:

Maths

A short maths challenge linking to the week’s learning. There will be 3 different challenges that your child can choose to complete depending on how confident they felt with that concept in class. Children should also log into TTRS (https://ttrockstars.com) and practise their multiplication recall.

Spellings

Children will have 10 spellings sent home linking to a spelling pattern being taught in class. These will be tested in the spelling session on a Wednesday morning.

IPC

At the bottom of the homework will be some questions linking to the topics being taught in class. Please ask your children these questions and get them talking about all the incredible learning that is taking place in classrooms! This is a great chance for children to share all of their amazing knowledge.
