Literacy “The Hunter” by Paul Geraghty

This term, the children will be writing information texts linked in with our topic work and focusing on the text above. They will also be completing narrative writing (En5/3.1, En5/3.2, En5/3.3).

In grammar, the children will be learning about parenthesis, modal verbs, expanded noun phrases and using commas and hyphens to avoid ambiguity (En5/3.4).

The children will continue to use Cracking Comprehension to support their comprehension work (En5/2.2).

 

Maths

During the spring term, the children will be focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages (Ma5/2.4).

We will be comparing and ordering fractions whose denominators are all multiples of the same number; identifying equivalent fractions, recognising mixed numbers and improper fractions and converting from one to the other; adding and subtracting fractions with denominators that are multiples of the same number; multiplying proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers; reading and writing numbers as fractions; round decimals to the nearest whole number and to 1 decimal place; read, write, order and compare numbers with up to 3 decimal places; write percentages as a fraction and decimal and solving problems involving percentages, decimals and fractions.

 

Science

This term, the children will be learning about Properties and Changes of Materials in science (Sc5/3.1).

We will be comparing and group together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity (electrical and thermal), and response to magnets; knowing that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution; use knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporating; give reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, including metals, wood and plastic; demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes; explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials, and that this kind of change is not usually reversible, including changes associated with burning and the action of acid on bicarbonate of soda.

  

RE and CARE

This term, in CARE, we will be focusing on resilience.

In RE, we are going to be concentrating on the kingdom of God, forgiveness, salvation and resurrection. We will also be learning about Buddhism.

 

PE

PE will still be taught on Monday and Friday, so please make sure you have your full PE kit (PE2/1.1). Swimming will continue to take place on a Thursday (PE2/1.2).

Reading: weekly your child will be given guided reading homework (En5/2,2) and in addition to this could you please read with your child as frequently as possible (even if they are a free reader, as this is proven to improve a child’s comprehension skills).
