Back to the Future

 

How does our past influence our future?

 

This term's learning will be based all around answering the question of 'How does our past influence our future?' We will go back in time to 1642 when the English Civil War began and learn what influenced this as well as some local history as to what made Newark an important role in the Civil War. We will study key people of the Civil war including the Roundheads and the Cavaliers.

 

PE days this term are Tuesdays (fitness) and Wednesdays (tennis with Kane from Inspire+). Please make sure children have appropriate PE kit in school for these days including trainers.

 

Homework will continue being set on Fridays to be handed in the following Friday. Our weekly spelling test will also be on Fridays. Please also make sure your child is reading regularly at home and practising their times tables.

Lend Me Your Ears

How Roman are we?

This term through our learning we will be trying to answer the question of 'How Roman are we?'

We will learn all about who the Romans were, what life was like for them and what we have to thank the Romans for today.

We will also learn about volcanoes and use our creative writing techniques to build atmosphere and suspense with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius! In art we will be learning all about the artist Antoni Gaudi along with Roman mosaics to create our own.

 

PE days are Mondays and Tuesdays, please make sure your child has the correct PE kit including warm layers as we will be outside as much as possible.

 

Homework will continue to be set on Fridays and to be handed in the following Friday. Our weekly spelling test will also be on Fridays.

 

Please make sure your child is reading regularly at home as well as practising their times tables and spellings.

Biomes

This term we will be travelling all the way to South America to learn all about a world biome known as the rainforest. We will be focussing on answering the question of 'why is Columbia so biodiverse?' through all of our learning across the curriculum. We will take a journey through the different layers of the rainforest to see what exciting plants and animals we find on our way, as well as learning all about how South America's geography contributes to the biodiversity in the Amazon.

 

We will be swimming on Tuesday afternoons up until October half term and will have dance sessions on a Wednesday morning with Inspire+ dance coach Beth.

Please make sure your child has appropriate kit in school for these sessions.

 

Homework will be sent out on Fridays to be returned the following Friday.
