We hope that you have all had a restful Summer and are ready for a busy term ahead. Our topic this term is Island Life. Our main text throughout the term is Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo, which tells the story of a boy shipwrecked on a deserted island. We will be using the text to practise plenty of narrative writing and exploring similar themes in other texts. Science is the main supplementary unit of work with plenty of investigations around the theme of water and also looking at ocean habitats and life cycles. Our residential trip enables us to learn some of the survival skills the character in the book would have to have learned as well as plenty of other exciting activities.
Weekly homework is given out on a Friday and due back the following Wednesday. It usually involves further Maths practice and English grammar or punctuation work. A topic homework is due in twice this term; the list is attached at the bottom of this page.
PE this term will take place on Mondays and Fridays, so please make sure that PE kit is in school for these days. We also do our morning run on Monday - Wednesday, so the children need their trainers for this.
If you have any questions about this term's work, please don't hesitate to ask!
Mrs Burton & Mrs Henderson
