Welcome to Moles
After a well-deserved, relaxing Easter break, we are delighted to be starting our summer term with a brand new topic where we will try to answer the question ‘Will water ever run out?’ We will kick start our topic with an exciting Inspiration Day where we will be carrying out some amazing water experiments and will also have a visit from Trent to explain where our water comes from and how it gets to our houses! We will be learning all about the water cycle and understanding the wonderful world of water on our blue planet!
In English, we will be reading ‘The Rhythm of the Rain’ by Grahame Baker-Smith which explores the stages of the water cycle and captures the movement of water around the earth which links closely to our topic. We will continue to focus on our inference, deduction and vocabulary skills in our English lessons. 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 either myself or another 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.
In mathematics, we will be continuing to secure our understanding of the four operations and using the appropriate method to help us to solve problems. We will also be looking at fractions, perimeter and capacity this term. We will continue to consolidate our times tables knowledge but please ensure that your child gets lots of practise at home as this will really support their learning.
PE lessons will continue to take place on a Tuesday. Please make sure that your child comes into school wearing their correct PE kit.
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!
