Our topic this half term will be...ITALY!
Why has Italian culture spread so far and wide? We will find the answer to this question and many more when we delve into our topic this half term. This term, we will explore where Italy is in the world, the Italian renaissance, art, food, architecture and music. Please find the Knowledge Organiser with details of our Topic in the USEFUL DOCUMENTS section at the bottom of this page.
In English this half term, we will be exploring Aaron Becker's The Journey and use this as inspiration for our writing this term. We will also use this text to support us with sharpening key reading skills such as inference, retrieval and using language for effect.
In Maths, we will revise Place Value and Addition and Subtraction for the first week before continuing with Multiplication and Division. This unit of Maths will focus on using written methods to multiply or divide a 2-digit number by a 1- digit number linking to the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. We will continue to use resources and images to support our learning such as counters, arrays and multiplication grids.
So we hope you are ready for a year filled with excitement, fun and learning!
Home Learning will focus on learning the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables. An activity will be handed out on Tuesday and will be due back on Monday. Another fun and engaging way to practice times tables is through the website TT Rockstars!
Did you know your TT Rockstars log in works on the site site Numbots too? Numbots is a fantastic site by the same team that brought you TT Rockstars that helps your children with early counting, adding and subtracting. Please give it a go if you feel this will support your child's Maths learning.
If you would like additional homework, please speak to your child's class teacher.
If you need another copy of your child's TT Rockstars log in, please speak to your child's class teacher.
Each Friday, we have a spelling test on the spelling rule we have focused on that week. The sheet
will be available to go home once scores have been collated and logged. Be sure to practice your spellings at home so you can beat your score week on week!
We will also look at the Year 3 and 4 Statutory Spelling list throughout the year with a weekly focus.
Please find the spelling list for this half term in the USEFUL DOCUMENTS section at the bottom of this page.
