Rye Class Curriculum Letter Spring Term 2021
First of all, I would like to wish you a Happy New Year and I hope that you have all had a great Christmas. It is not the start to the New Year that many of us were expecting but I have been really pleased with the quality of the home learning that I have received so far. There are only a few children in Rye class at the moment, who are completing the same tasks as everyone learning remotely. I will be a maths and English task each day combined with either topic, computing or science. Outlined below is a summary of the areas of learning that we will be covering this term.
In Literacy we will learning about myths and legends stories. We will learn about the key features of each and the similarities and differences between them. We will then have a go at planning and writing our own myths and legends stories.
In Maths the children will be increasing their knowledge of fractions, decimals and percentages. This is an area lots of children find tricky so we will be working hard to improve their skills and confidence. The children have been working hard to learn their times tables so this should really help. All children in class are set Mathletics activities to do at home whenever possible which covers the whole maths curriculum and really improves their mathematical knowledge. If you could encourage them to do this at home too please it would be very much appreciated and really beneficial.
Our topic for this term is ‘Revolution!’ During this topic we will be travelling back in time to meet the Victorians. We will be finding out about the incredibly strict schools and as well as learning about ingenious inventions from the period that we take for granted today. Examples here include the light bulb, the telephone and the flushing toilet!
I am happy to help at any time so if you do have any questions or would like to discuss anything please let me know.
