Although the children are in the same classroom, they will notice some big differences. Firstly, the room itself is looking very smart and bright having been given a new coat of paint. The tables and chairs are bigger and the children will have their own trays fitted under the desks. As the children are growing up, they will be expected to keep these trays clean and organised!
The children can bring (if they wish):
The school will provide:
We do ask that children replace equipment they have lost or broken (lost pencils, snapped rulers, glue sticks without tops, etc.) as we want to encourage them to look after their equipment and respect school property.
This term will be focusing on Place Value, Addition and Subtraction and Multiplication and Division. We will be looking at numbers with 3 digits and learning how to partition these numbers into hundreds, tens and ones. We will be learning how to use the place value system to carry out arithmetic skills.
How can you help at home? The White Rose app is great for children to practise their maths skills. This can be downloaded onto your phone or tablet. The children are confident now in counting in 2s, 5s and 10s so please practise these times tables with your child to promote recall e.g. what is 4x5? what is 7x10? Finding opportunities to practise everyday maths in the real world will also help support your child e.g. counting coins to find the correct amount, working out the correct change, weighing ingredients using scales and reading the time on an analogue clock.
How can you help at home?
Skeletons! We will be learning about the purpose of skeletons, different types of skeletons, and how skeletons vary in different creatures.
The children will be thinking hard in RE this term, considering questions such as "What does light symbolise in different religions?" and "How do people show they are Christians?"
PE will be taught on Mondays and Wednesdays; the children should come to school in their PE kit. In Autumn term the children will be doing Gymnastics, Golf, Football and Handball.
