Autumn term curriculum overview
This term our project is Population.
Through cross-curricular learning, we will be exploring how population affects the world around us. We will be looking at the human and physical features of the UK before jetting off across the Atlantic Ocean to Central America, where we will be learning about the Ancient Maya. In Art we will be using famous townscape paintings by L.S. Lowry which depict busy towns and cities in the mid 20th century. Our class music is "Another Hundred People" from the musical Broadway. Our class book is Sky Song by Abi Elphinstone. Eska is a girl who has no memory of where she belongs. Along with Flint, a boy from the Fur Tribe, Eska must find away of using her voice to free the people of Erkenwald from the frozen clutches of the evil Ice Queen.
Homework will consist of the following:
- Times Tables Rockstars
- Spelling Shed
- Individual reading
It is really important that you read with your child at least 5 times a week.
To support your child at home with their reading you could use lots of different questioning techniques. Asking your child to repeat/ summarise what they have read or picking specific events in the book to talk about will help you to understand what they have learnt. You can find lots of example questions to ask your child below.
Reading books will be sent home with each child along with reading records. Please ensure your child's record is signed after you listen to them read.
Please have a look for any reading books from last term that you may still have at home and bring them back to us as soon as possible.
