A huge welcome to Maple class from Mr. Gachowicz and Miss. Claxton.
In the Summer term we are looking forward to learning about the Ancient Romans and Roman Britain. We will be learning through a creative topic-based way, writing a recount in the form a newspaper report based on the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, retelling the ancient myth Romulus and Remus and writing non-chronological reports based on something from the topic which interests us. The children will continue to learn outdoors and we will investigate shape using natural materials. Through an enquiry-based approach, we will investigate habitats, discovering how to classify animals and learn about the impact of humans on habitats. We shall conduct a local study at the Wetland in Ingoldisthorpe.
We always try our best and will be learning lots of new skills in Maths and English. There will be a focus on practicing our tackling tables daily so we can become fluent in our times tables and mastering the inverse as well as regular arithmetic work to master the four operations. There will be catch-up provision ensuring we are confident in our number work.
Reading remains important to us and we will be developing our analytical and synthesis skills through whole class guided and individual reads.
We will have PE twice a week so please ensure indoor and outdoor PE kits are at school. A home reading book will be sent out on a Monday and returned on a Friday (if finished). Spellings will be set and tested weekly and can be accessed on SpellingShed. New spellings will be sent home on a Friday. Homework will also be sent home on a Friday and returned to school the following Monday.
We are very excited about this term!

Reading and Comprehension
Use this link http://www.pobble365.com/. There is a new picture daily, if you scroll down each picture has a story starter and children can continue the story. They have had lots of practise at this through their early morning work. There are additional activities to do too such as questions to answer, pictures to draw, and sentences to improve which will build on their sentence work and grammar knowledge. Happy writing.
