Miss Berry, Mrs Wilkins and Mrs Nadeau
Welcome to the fantastic Foxes class with Miss Berry, Mrs Wilkins and Mrs Nadeau. We are so excited to welcome you all back to school and cannot wait to begin our learning journey with you!
This term we will be looking at a geography based enquiry question ‘Why have people settled in Chard?’ This will involve looking at the different counties across the UK, cities in the UK, land use, settlement patterns and migration.
In English, we will focus on a range of genres and texts, allowing the children to extend their ability in writing. Some of these will incorporate key themes from this term’s topic. In addition, we will be recapping, as well as learning new spelling and grammar rules. In Maths, we will focus on Number; exploring place value, rounding and negative numbers. Furthermore, we will revisit key arithmetic skills that we will continue to develop on a daily basis.
In Science, we will be exploring animals including humans which will involve looking at the different stages of human development.
We will have PE twice weekly; please ensure your child has suitable clothing for either indoor or outdoor activities on these days.
Spellings will be weekly, which are based on a rule that the children will need to learn to enable them to apply to their writing. Homework will also be weekly, set on a Friday and collected the following Friday. In addition to this, it is expected that over the course of a week, children will have read five times at home.
