Week Commencing: Monday 23rd May 2022
Word of the week:
Perplexed and confused; very puzzled
This week in school:
Now that are SATs are finished, the focus turns to writing. The children will be doing a few different pieces
of writing which will be moderated, which, like SATs, helps give their respective high schools an indication of
what they are capable of.
English: This will be the main focus of the week. We will be looking at narratives; writing a descriptive piece and editing a story. There will also be a diary entry to write up. The children will be reminded of some of the key features these written pieces should include. They will write a draft in their journals to be up-levelled into their exercise books and then at the end of the week, the children will write up a final draft.
Maths: Although, there won't be any discreet maths lessons this week, we will be dropping in short-burst fluency lessons, which could include times table recall, place value knowledge or number bonds.
Science: The topic until half term is 'Evolution and Inheritance'. This will start by looking at fossils and what
they tell us about what came before. We will look at traits in humans and in animals and look for patterns of
behaviour and how and why these traits form. We will also discover how animals and plants have adapted to
their environments over a long period of time.
PE: Our PE day will be Fridays. Children must ensure they attend school in their PE kits (plain white top, plain black shorts/joggers and trainers. Any hoodie a child wishes to wear needs to be plain black, alternatively their red school jumper or cardigan is fine). Please note: studs will have to be removed prior to the PE lesson.
Children should also keep up with their reading and visit TT Rockstars and Reading Plus regularly.
*Uniform: Please remember to wear plain black school shoes. You may wish to wear one pair of small studs, however no other jewellery is permitted.
Below, we have included the spellings so you can make a start on them!
