Marvellous Malvern”

Maths

 

To begin this term we will be recapping on our knowledge of place value and number. Afterwards we will move on to look at statistics where we shall explore and interpret different forms of data such as pictograms, tally charts and block diagrams. Then, we will be recapping on our knowledge of measures and fractions.

English

This term we have a variety of different texts which we will be focusing on in English. We will be focusing most of our English learning on fairy tales and their conventions. To start with we will be looking at “Cinderella” and creating our own versions of this traditional tale. Following this, we will look at “The Pea and the Princess’ - a mixed up version of the original fairy tale.

Science

 

In science, we will be looking at materials and their properties. There will be lots of practical experiments in this topic where the children will be testing different materials for certain properties and thinking about the suitability of materials for certain uses. Within this unit, we will also be looking at some of the different inventors linked with materials.

Topic

 

This term our topic will be focused on looking at Malvern and its local history and geography. In the first half term we will mainly be learning about geography. We will be creating maps, using symbols and improving our geography fieldwork skills. In the second half term, we will be mainly focusing on history and finding out about significant events, people and places in the locality. We will start by looking at the Malvern water cure. Then we will find out about The Priory and The Abbey Hotel before finally learning about Edward Elgar and his music

Computing

 

This term we will be looking at applying the skills we learned about last half term to coding. We will be using the espresso coding scheme of work and looking a creating our own mini-games within this.

Art/DT

 

In Art we will again be using our topic focus to inspire our work. We will be focusing on creating pieces of art that depict the Malvern hills and using this as an opportunity to enhance our painting and sketching skills. We will also be looking at colour mixing and different styles of painting.

PSHE

In PSHE this term we will be continuing to use the JIGSAW scheme of learning and we will be moving on to looking at relationships.

PE

 

 

 

During PE we will be enjoying learning about dance and putting together our routines to different music. We will also be incorporating our science learning in this by creating our own dances to represent the life cycle of a plant.

 

 

 

 Additional Information

PE kit

 

 

 

P.E lessons are on Thursday Afternoons. Please make sure they wear a full P.E kit in school which should include: White T- shirt, bottle green shorts, long black football socks, suitable trainers/pumps, black or green jogging bottoms (or shorts) .

Homework

Reading

 

 

Reading books will be sent home daily. It is important that you read every day with your child and record their reading in your child’s reading diary. Your child will need to bring their books to school every day.

Spellings

 

 

 

Spelling lists will be set on a Friday and tested the following Friday. Please support your child in learning the words they bring home. This year we will not be sending home spellings in a book – just on a sheet. The children do not need to bring this sheet back in to school.

Homework

 

 

 

 

The children will receive various different pieces of homework throughout the term. Some of these pieces may be set on Microsoft Teams so please make sure your child has logged into their account ready for this.

- All of the children have received a username and password for this website and a brief letter of how to access the online games and activities that are on there. 

- Teachers have not yet set which activities they want your child to access, so for now we would like them just to explore the games that they wish to try. To do this click on the 'subjects' heading on the side menu. 

- Then choose English, maths or science and try games either at the age they are working at or below to build some confidence to begin with.

- Once your child's teacher has set any classwork for them to do on here they will let you know via Twitter and their year group page. This will be by the Easter holidays to enable your child to have time to work through their home learning packs first.

 

- If you have problems connecting please contact via email to the office which will be forwarded to me so I can sort any issues. 

 

Thanks, Mrs Perry.
