Our Weekly Timetable

Termly subject coverage – Summer 1

 

This term we will be learning about:

 

Maths – Each week we will be completing work from different areas of Maths. The children will be given different types of arithmetic and reasoning questions to prepare themselves for the style of questions that could be asked within the SATs tests. This will allow the children to become familiar with a variety of questions and to be more relaxed when they finally sit the set papers. The children will complete their SATs papers w/c 16th May 2022.

 

Reading – Every day the children will have a phonics session where all of the sounds are learnt; words are segmented and blended back together; read green words which can be decoded phonetically and read red words that need to be learnt by sight. Time will be spent completing phonic activities and reading texts to suit each child’s reading level.

For children who are ready to take the next step, comprehension sessions take place where a text is read and discussed in detail. The children then answer questions to test their overall comprehension skills.

The children are given time to read in school and take the Accelerated Reading tests when they have finished and understood their book. These tests ask the children questions to clarify their understanding and only allow them to move onto the next stage when ready. We would like each child to read one book per week and at least 3 pages per night.

 

Writing –

During this half term we will be covering a variety of traditional tales such as Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella. We will then be moving onto stories with a twist ‘Little Red Riding Wolf’ and ‘The true story of the three little pigs.’ We will be focussing on lots of different skills such as using subordination, letter writing, diary entries and re-telling stories. We will continue to edit our writing and focussing on always making the best vocabulary choices. We will be writing our own postcards within our new Topic work ‘Hooray for Holidays’. Over the next half term, we will continue to concentrate on using full question marks and exclamation marks more independently. Presentation and letter formation is still a focus, ensuring our letter sizes are correct and there is a clear difference when using ‘tall letters’.

 

Science

Everyday Materials – Exploring Changes

 

The children observe a block of ice and record the changes. They devise an investigation to melt the ice quickly or slowly. Then they create puddles and measure how they change. They take up the challenge of investigating the absorbency of fabrics and explore changes in wax through batik art and crayon making.

 

Creative Curriculum –

Our topic this term is ‘Hooray for Holidays’

We will be covering:

- Holidays in the past

- Victorian Seaside

- Why people visit the seaside

- The difference between the seaside, country side, cities and towns

- Holiday’s around the world

- What we would need for holidays around the world.

 

 

Spellings –

The children have now all been given their spelling booklet which lists the spellings to be learnt each week until half term. Each week a spelling test will take place on a Thursday and then the new spelling will be introduced.
