Term 4

In English this term we are unpicking short stories and looking at the skills authors use to devise them. The children will then be creating their own. Later on in the term, we will be moving onto the topic My Way Home. This unit follows the character of Shane and his life on the streets.

During science, we are exploring light. Children will begin to unpick how we see light, how it travels and how shadows are formed.

In ICT children will be working through their second coding topic. Children will be looking at how the code works and begin to develop their own applications.

During PSHE, we are beginning to look at how we can develop strategies and skills to become resilient. This will also be working alongside our mindfulness sessions, as we teach the children ways to switch off and become more present.

You can support your child at home by reading with them at least four times weekly, practising any spellings that are sent home and helping them to complete any other tasks set.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.
