Welcome to Moles!
Class Teacher: Miss Wakelin
Learning Support: Mrs Costa
Welcome to Moles class!
After a relaxing, sunny Easter break, we are excited to be starting our summer term. We will be kick starting our new topic ‘Is change always better?’ with a fantastic Inspiration Day. We will be creating our own cave art and creating our own clothing using limited resources. We cannot wait for the fashion show! We will be learning all about the Stone Age and comparing life back then to life now. We will be designing and creating our own roundhouses as well as taking part in our own ‘hunter gatherer scavenger hunt’. Over the half term, we will also become scientists by investigating light and shadow and carrying out our own experiments. It is going to be so much fun!
In English, we will be looking at a non-fiction writing journey based on Skara Brae. We will be looking at the features of a non-fiction persuasive text to support our independent write at the end of the half term. We will be using the FANTASTICS, GRAMMARTASTICS AND BOOMTASTICS from the Write Stuff in our writing to make improvements and to make our work stand out! In addition to this, we will continue to have a big focus on reading and all children will have an opportunity to read with an adult in the class. Each week there will be a reading afternoon dedicated to reading and comprehension skills. Please ensure that your child has a reading book with them each day. We will continue to teach spellings using the ‘Sounds Write’ scheme, which focuses on phonics and sounds.
In mathematics, we will be looking at the properties of 3D shapes, angles and beginning to look at time! We will also be practising our times tables each week and it would be great if you could practise together at home as this will really support your child’s learning. Remember that you can access TTRockstars from home at any time.
Our PE sessions are now back to Tuesdays and Fridays so please ensure that your child comes to school in their correct, full PE kit. Please remember sun cream and a hat if it is sunny.
Spellings will be given out each Friday ready for a test on the following Friday.
Keep checking back on our page to look at all of the amazing things that we are getting up to!
