Our Learning

Our topic for this half term is ‘Different Places, Similar Lives’.

As part of our ‘Different Places, Similar Lives’ topic, we will be learning about the similarities and differences between how people lead their lives in different countries throughout the world.

We will need to be global ambassadors as we compare our school life with another school internationally. As geographers we will explore how the climate affects the way people live and as historians we learn about how important people in the countries we are studying have changed lives.

In this unit we will ask exciting questions such as: Can people have similar interests and lifestyles even if they live in different countries of the world?

English

This half term we will be focussing on the following genres of writing.

 

  • Explanatory texts
  • Third person writing
  • Poetry

Supporting your child with their learning at home

Reading

Reading should be completed a minimum of 3x a week, but ideally for 10 minutes each evening. 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 up to 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.

PE

PE days are as follows for Spring 1:

4W- Thursday

4D (4AP) - Thursday
