This term by Emily Turner

I have really enjoyed doing my SATS tests this term because I like hard work.I have also been to Cherry Garth camping with Mrs Leach it was excellent. In literacy we made and wrote postcards from Cleethorpes which was also part of our topic lesson.

Summer Term

In maths this term we will be focusing on preparing for SATs. We will do this by recapping and practising things such as:

  • solving calculations involving the 4 different operations (addition, subtraction, multiplying and dividing) and choosing the correct/ best method to use.
  • Finding fractions of shapes and numbers (1/2, 1/3, ¼, 2/4, ¾)
  • Using money and finding equivalent values of different amounts using different coins and solving money problems
  • 2D and 3D shapes
  • Time – reading and telling the time to the nearest quarter of an hour.
  • Problem solving

In English we will be preparing for the Spellings SATs paper and the Grammar, punctuation and spelling paper. We will also be practising and trying to include the following things in our writing:

  • Punctuation – capital letters, full stops, exclamation marks, question marks, commas, apostrophes for contractions (e.g. don’t, I’m, he’s:)
  • Adjectives for description
  • Connectives
  • The 4 different types of sentences – exclamations, questions, statements and commands

Our topic for the summer term is Cleethorpes. We will be learning about different types of location and the physical and human features of Cleethorpes, the history of Cleethorpes and comparing the similarities/ differences between Victorian Cleethorpes and Cleethorpes today. In science we will be learning about different materials and electrical circuits.

Our PE days will continue to be Tuesday and Fridays and homework (spellings) are given out on Mondays and to be handed in by Friday. Please help your children in this final term by encouraging them to read as much as possible at home, they do not have to read a school book, any book/ comic they have at home also counts! Please also help them read and spell the common exception words in the front of their reading record.

Thanks,

Miss Johnson
