In our Rivers Topic in Term 5 we will be learning about how rivers are formed and begin to use words to describe the stages of a river. We will also create a mini river system of our own! The children will watch clips and take part in practical lessons linked to the water cycle. They will also work in groups to design, make and test their own bridges as part of a cross curricular lesson involving: English, D.T and Geography.
Thank you to so many of you who have provided support to your child by reading with them at home. We will continue to look at the children’s reading journals during our Guided Reading sessions and give rewards/prizes to the children who have managed to read with an adult at least three times outside of school within the week. We will continue to set reading comprehension homework fortnightly, which should be completed so that your child can go through the comprehension with the teacher.
During this half term we will be using the ‘Anglo Saxon’ theme as a stimulus for our lessons. In English, we will be using this interesting historical subject for both our fiction and non-fiction writing, including story writing, newspaper reports and explanation writing.
Every week your child has plenty of opportunities to write. We encourage the children to write at length in many different subjects. We also have a weekly Big Write session where we focus on writing lots of different text types, e.g. traditional tale, diary entry, explanation text. This will be on a Monday.

We will continue teaching our number, measurement, statistics and geometry strands in Maths throughout both terms. We will ensure that the children are challenged and their needs are met with suitable provision. There will also be a greater focus on real life Mathematical problems. The children will be grouped into classes for their maths work (as Year 4) and we will continue to monitor the progress of the children to ensure that they are in a group that is appropriate to their ability and confidence.
We will continue, where possible, set homework through the ‘MyMaths’ website. We will be giving out weekly homework in the children’s homework books but will now also be using the MyMaths website to upload homework.
