Welcome to Rowan Class

Summer Term Curriculum

This term our project question is:

‘How do other people live?’

Our project this term has a create focus where we explore the arts.  

We are staying in the rainforest, but looking more at the people that live there and their culture.  Beatriz Milhazes and her collage work will be our art focus.  We will be enjoying listening to the music of Tony O’Connor and creating our own rainforest sounds. We will find out about rainforest homes and how people live in the rainforest.  Science this term will involve investigating materials, exploring the properties of materials and their uses. Our STEM project is building a sturdy rainforest model house applying what we have learned about strengthening materials.

English and Maths

In English lessons we will be learning how to write recounts, reports and writing in role.  ‘The Last Wolf’ and ‘Grandad’s Secret Giant’ are our books inspiring our writing. In maths we will continue to work on our arithmetic skills, graphs, 2D/3D shape and gaining confidence with fractions.

 

Maths

The children have continued to delight us with thier focus and progress in maths this year.  We are further strengthening their strategies when using the four operations (+, -, x,÷) by encouraging them to explain and prove how they know they have the correct answer.  

We will be focusing on measures, shape and graphs, but also recapping on all areas of the curriulum in preparation for SATS.

Writing

This term we will be focussing on recounts in the form of letters, diaries and recounting personal experiences. Our targets will be to confidently use a variety of conjunctions, write different sentence types and hte way we begin sentences.

Reading 

Please can we keep up the great practice from Spring term, changing home reading books as often as possible, and reading regularly.  In lessons, we will continue to focus on written comprehension work, so, as ever, the more questions that you ask your child about what they are reading at home, the more this will help them to answer questions in school. This is particularly valuable as we make preparations for SATS this term.

Spellings

Spellings will continue to be given out and tested every Friday. Thank you for your continued support with this.

Maths weekly challenges

As you all know, maths fluency work is very important for children’s rapid recall of number facts which helps them in all areas of maths. The children will continue to work on multiplication facts for 2. 5 and 10 times tables. They will also be securing strategies for adding and subtracting two digit numbers, alongside keeping their knowledge of small number facts sharp.

PE

Rowan Class have PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  Please make sure that your child has their full kit in school.
