Our class novel is 'Vlad and the Great Fire of London' written by Kate Cunningham.

We will continue using the schools chosen scheme, White Rose.

We will be continuing with addition and subtraction before moving onto Money. We will then begin multiplication and division before the Christmas break and will continue in the new year.

 

Science -

Our Science focus for Autumn B will be materials.

We will be identifying and comparing a variety of everyday materials and will experiment with and classify them to determine which are most suitable for specific purposes.

This term we will be studying the Great Fire of London and will learn how and why it happened. We will also research Samuel Pepys and how he is associated with the Great Fire.

 

Geography -  

This term we will be linking our Geography work to the History and will be studying London and its features in detail.

 

Art & DT- 

To link with our project, we will use a variety of materials to create a scene of the Great Fire of London. We will explore different tools, mediums and techniques including printing.

RE-

This term we will continue to answer the question ‘What is a Christian and what do they believe?’.  

We will explore Christian prayer and what is important to Christians before reviewing all we have learned.

On Thursday 4thNovember it is National Outdoor Classroom Day and Broadfield are getting involved.

During the week beginning the 1st November, we will be taking one or more of our lessons outside.

Please can you ensure children have suitable coats and footwear.

PE

Children have PE twice a week.

Please ensure that your child has a sensible PE kit, including trainers in school.

SOME PE LESSONS WILL BE OUTDOORS - PLEASE ENSURE CHILDREN HAVE ADEQUATE CLOTHING IN THEIR KIT

(THIS MUST INCLUDE TRAINERS AND A WARM JACKET).

Homework

Homework is set on a weekly basis for Spellings and Number facts. The spellings and timestables are sent out via the apps (Spelling Shed and Timestables Rockstars) and can be accessed at home.  All children have log ins for both sites.  These need to be completed at least daily, to ensure the children get the best opportunities to succeed. 

 

                                                                            

Reading

Reading is a life skill, so it is so important that your child reads on a daily basis. Please make sure that your child reads every single night. Encourage them to read a variety of different books. Record how they read in their reading records.

*Ask your child questions about the book e.g.

-Can you predict what will happen next?

-Can you describe how the character might be feeling?

-Can you summarise the key points in the story?

-Is this fiction or non-fiction? How do you know?

 Reading books must be in school every day so that their progress can be monitored and their name moved up the class reading tree, the children will also need to read during the day. 

 

Maths

-Encourage your child to practice times tables at home.

-Ask your child mental maths questions as often as possible e.g. when you are sat in the car/ walking to school/ sat together at home. You could ask them additions, subtractions, doubles etc.

-Ask any siblings if they can remember a maths game that they played in school and encourage them to play together to make maths fun.

 

 

Home Learning 

If your child needs to self - isolate because of a family member having symptoms/testing positive for COVID 19 then they can access the daily work through the Seesaw app.  All children will have an individual log in and will be fully able to access and submit work through this.
