Welcome to the Summer term!

18.04.22

Welcome to Eagle Owls and welcome to the first half of the Summer term!

I thought it would be lovely for you to know what is happening in Eagle Owls this half-term. I have provided a list of topics below that we will be studying as well as information that you will need to know about class 5.

Maths – BIG maths. Key focuses for this term: Organising data, angles, amounts, multi-step problems, probability/ratio and shape.

Before every maths lesson, we also spend 20 minutes on 4 areas which we have identified for improvement from out weekly 'beat it', 'SAFE' and 'learn it'' checks.

Literacy – Text: The boy at the back of the class by Onjali Q Rauf.

Writing styles - Sonnet poetry, formal persuasive writing.

Science - Properties of materials.

RE – Creation

Topic – The Pilgrim fathers.

Geography – Comparing South West UK, Eastern North America and Holland.

Homework is a regular and important part of school life but it is not meant for you and your child to worry about. I would very much appreciate your support with any homework that is set. Homework will currently be set on a Friday.

Your child will complete weekly spelling tests. Practice sheets will be handed out every week in their black folders. These will be set every Friday along with homework. Once every two weeks, topic spellings will also be tested, these will be sent home along with their weekly spellings. Their test will be the following Friday.

Please read with your child as much as possible and ask them questions about the text.

Every Tuesday your child will participate in an outdoor learning/PE day which will require them to wear outdoor clothing and outdoor footwear.

 

I look forward to working with you this year to develop your child’s learning to their maximum potential. If you wish to discuss any aspect of your child’s education with us please contact me via email (jedwards@harworth.snmat.org.uk). This email will not be monitored during the day due to teaching therefore if it is urgent, please contact school directly.

 

Thanks for your support,

Mr Edwards
