Spring 2

Class teachers – Mrs Pullen & Mrs Roberts

Welcome back to school everyone after what was yet another strange half term. Well done to each and everyone of you for adapting to the new school life whether that be from home or key worker school. We really hope that we can get back to some sort of ‘normal’ very soon. 

In Maths, we will start with a two week revision block covering work from the Autumn term. We will use previous White Rose materials to support this revision. The rest of the term we will continue with our work on Fractions.

In English, we will begin with a two week poetry unit, followed by our new Pathways Unit based on the story ‘The Darkest Dark’. 

Science (Earth & Space) will be delivered during the first week back after half term using Developing Experts.  Art will take the lead during the second week and will be a Spring topic to help lift our mood and look towards new beginnings.  

PE will now be taught by our S4K coach on a Wednesday morning with Mr Seary.

Homework

Homework will continue to be sent out on a Friday and will be a piece of spelling/ writing work and a piece of Maths which will now be set using Purple Mash.

Home Learning

Most home learning will be set on Microsoft Teams. We will provide a weekly overview detailing the learning for each day along with links to a range of learning platforms such as Whiterose Maths, TT Rockstars,  Purple Mash, Rising Stars and Developing Experts. The children have their own individual log ins for the various platforms and have been shown how to access work on all of them. Children can communicate with us using the Teams Posts facility and weekly Teams calls will be scheduled for the children to chat to the teacher as well as one another.
