Summer Term 2018
English, Reading and Writing
In our classroom we aspire to be avid readers who truly love to read for pleasure. To encourage this goal, in the spring term, the children chose for us to read Alice's Adventures Through the Looking-Glass and use it to inspire some aspects of our own writing! This work continues into the summer term.
"Have I gone mad?"
"I'm afraid so, but let me tell you something, the best people usually are..."
In conjunction with our topic, and statutory requirements, we aim to become classroom authors,
writing the following this term:
Formal Letter Writing
Newspaper Report Writing
We see mathematics around us everyday in almost every aspect of our lives. So, in Kestrel class, we aspire to use our BLPs to grow our mathematical minds every single day and enjoy doing it! This half term we aim to learn, reason with and apply the following:
- Measuring Time
Animals including humans
In this unit, Kestrel Class will explore the changes that occur in humans as they develop from birth to old age.
Properties and changing of materials
We will be exploring, comparing and grouping together everyday materials on the basis of their properties. There will be lots of experimenting this term!
Let's get active! In Kestrel Class we aim to take part in the Golden Mile at least twice a week. It is promoting our stamina and improving our fitness week by week! We are encouraging pupils to walk, jog or run 50 miles during the school year. This term we will be putting our energy into learning more skills surrounding the following:
- Athletics Field
- Athletics Track
- Games, including striking and fielding
We live in a technological age and so it is only right we grow with it! But in order to make the most of such technology, we need to know how to use it safely and securely to protect ourselves and others around us. Thus, this term we are focusing on being SMART online through research and learning regarding e-safety.
Further on in the term, we will be focusing on sequences and algorithms and will be creating our own!
