We will look at fourteen US states and find out information about the native American tribes, which originated in each of the states.

 PE will be Tennis outside on a Monday and dance inside on a Thursday. Year 3 and 4 will also be taking part in a Tag rugby competition this term.

Home Reading

The Children will continue to use the accelerated reader program and will be able to quiz on books they have been reading. To support your child with this please take time to ask them questions about what they have read. This will aid the development of their comprehension skills alongside the work they will be undertaking in class. 

Please ensure your child brings their reading folder and reading record to school daily. Children can sign their own reading records if they have read to themselves but children are expected to read to someone else (an adult/older sibling) at least once a week. This is to allow the person being read to, to ask questions ensuring the child has understood what they have read. If you were not able to attend the parent event about helping children with key skills and would like to, please see me to arrange a time where we can go through the content of the evening and different strategies to assist children’s learning. 

In maths we will be looking at shape, angles, classifying shape and symmetry for the first part of the term. We will then move to measuring perimeter and using decimals with money.
