In Lower Key Stage Two, we expect children to read 5 times a week and bring their reading book into school every day. Weekly spellings will be given out on a Monday to be assessed on the Friday of that week. Your class teacher will also provide a weekly Seesaw task relating to any area of the curriculum. For example, children may be expected to complete an activity relating to learning in Arts, Humanities, R.E, Spanish, Science and Wellbeing. The tasks will vary each week. Please check your child's Seesaw page for more details.
At the end of Year 4, all children are assessed on their times table facts. You can find more information here. We expect children to be practising their times table on TTRockstars at least twice a week. Their log in details should be glued in their Reading Record. https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student
Our P.E. day is Monday.
A gentle reminder that our school P.E. kit is a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps or trainers for outdoor sports, without visible branding. Children can come to school dressed in their PE kit, as long as it is the proper P.E. uniform. Otherwise, they will need to bring it in a separate bag.
Water bottles and snacks
Don't forget to bring a water bottle to school each day - it is important for children to stay hydrated throughout the day. Please label bottles and refill them each day.
Children are welcome to bring a healthy snack such as fruit and vegetables to school each day for snack time. Bread sticks and milk can be purchased at the start of each half-term (please speak to the school office about this).
Our shared reading text this half term will be a variety of poetry including Chocolate Cake by Michael Rosen. We will be working on our performance skills as well as writing our own poems. We will then move onto learning about David Attenborough and the impact of climate change. Following on from this, we will write letters to him including our ideas about our world and how we can help to protect it.
In Mathematics this term we will be concentrating really hard on our times tables and learning to effectively multiply and divide. In addition to this, we will also learn about money and how we can calculate with it. We will then move onto fractions. You can practise your times tables at home using TT Rockstars and build up your speed and accuracy which will help when problem solving and recalling fact families.
Our History topic this term is 'What makes Salford great?'. We will be exploring local history by researching important events that have happened to Salford over the recent past. During our visit to Lark Hill Place, we will discover what life was like in Salford before our time and we will look at artefacts and displays that represent our city in the past.
During our Geography unit this term, we will discover where the main deserts of the world are located and research what they are like. We will place them on a map and use our locational knowledge to discuss their positions.
