This term we continue our prehistoric topic as we venture into the Bronze and then Iron age

 

 

We will be finding out how the invention of Bronze changed the way we live.  The children will discover how people used to farm, make tools and weapons and how trade began to change the structure of civilization.  They will also find out about life in the settlements and hill forts looking at ancient crafts and changing diets.   

 

 


 

SAXONS ALIVE

We have more historical treats in store this term.  The children continue on the timeline to the age of the Saxons.  We begin with a whole day experiencing how the Saxons lived with lots of fun activities planned (mainly outside so be  prepared).  The following week we head to Kent Life to have a Saxon day with yet more adventure in store.

 ENGLISH

 

Over the term, the children will be researching the Bronze and Iron age using non fiction books to create an information text.  We will also be exploring Saxon Myths.  

 

The children continue using fronted adverbials and commas in their writing  and learning how to punctuate direct speech with inverted commas. 

  

MATHS

In Maths this term, the children are continuing to learn their times tables for rapid recall.   

We are learning about measure in the first couple of weeks and then moving onto FRACTIONS!

Remember to continue testing your times table knowledge  by logging onto Times Tables Rock Stars!

This will be set as homework alongside StudyZone. The children will need to login and check the activities they have been assigned. Please let me know if your child does not have access to a device to complete these tasks and I will provide a paper based task.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spelling and Timetables

Children have a weekly spelling and timetable test. New spelling lists and a maths based activity will be sent home on the Friday to be tested the following Friday.

Spellings will usually focus on specific spelling rules. Please discuss the rule with your child and encourage them to find out the meaning of the word if they are unsure.

 

Supporting your child at home...

Reading – Children should be reading at home at least 5 times a week. Please listen to your child read regularly and discuss their reading with them. Please sign your child’s reading record and ensure that they bring their book to school every day.

Reading Bingo is going well, many children have won a bookmark and one has managed to complete the whole sheet - BINGO!
