St Luke's CE
Our English texts this term have an author focus. Our author this term is Jeanne Willis and we are looking at the texts: The Bog Baby, Tadpole's Promise and Chicken Clicking. Using these texts we will be learning about expanded noun phrases, how verbs change tense, exclamation marks, apostrophes for contraction and conjunctions. They will be completing writing in the form of character and setting descriptions, letters, diary entries and retellings of the stories.
In Maths, we are beginning to look at multiplication and learning our 2, 5 and 10 times tables. After this we will move on to measurement by looking at length, height and how this is measured.
In RE, we will be looking at the religion of Islam and the 99 names for Allah. In Art, we are studying the artists David Hockney and Lucian Freud, using their influence to create our own self portraits. In Geography, we will be comparing towns and villages, looking at how local landmarks differ both in types and quantity. Lastly, in Science we will be looking at materials and their properties, how we choose a relevant material for a specific job and conducting experiments to test our scientific enquiries.
Reading books will be changed weekly in school and your child may be read with at any point within the week. Please ensure your child comes to school with their correct banded reading book and reading record each day. Library books will be changed on our library day each Wednesday.
We have PE on a Tuesday and a Thursday every week and children need to come to school
wearing their PE kit which is a white T-shirt, blue shorts and a plain (or with a school logo)
navy blue tracksuit top and bottoms, there should be no branded PE uniform with sports brand
logos. All children are expected to be in the correct PE kit as this is part of our uniform.
Please note earrings should be taped before coming to school and no children should be wearing hoop earrings.
