Maths 
                                                                               

This term we will be focusing on developing our place value knowledge and understanding. We will be applying this to four digit numbers. During this unit, we will be partitioning numbers, rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1,000. We will also begin to explore negative numbers.

We will also be continuing with our school wide push towards increasing times tables fluency, so please encourage your child to work on their key instant recall facts alongside their spellings and any other homework they are given.   This will be essential for when they sit their times table test. 

English

Our writing stimulus is a book named Float by Daniel Miyares. It is a lovely picture book that follows a boy's journey of making a paper boat. We will be writing a narrative based around this, using our new English approach. As a class we will be using a range of the fantastics, grammaristics and boomstastics to embed a range of different skills.

 

Topic

Our Topic for this term is connecting people and places. We explore the land use of Bingley and how transport has been used over time. We will draw sketch maps of Denholme and Bingley using a key. This will also involve a visit to the Leeds Liverpool Canal at Bingley, where we will be able to see the locks and how they work. 

 

Science

Our next science topic is animals including humans. During this topic we will explore how our bodies work. We will be looking at what makes our digestive system and the functions of each part. As well as this, we will be learning about our different types of teeth. Later in the unit, we will be exploring food chains.

P.E

Our P.E days are Mondday and Friday. We will be doing P.E. outside this half term. 

Please make sure your child has indoor pumps and a jacket and trousers for outdoor P.E. Please ensure that kit is clearly  labelled. See your child's planner for further details.

Music

This year Cedar class are lucky to be learning the guitar with Mr Boyes.  

Our lessons take place on Thursday mornings. 

Homework

Homework is sent out weekly. It will be sent out on the Friday and needs to be returned on the following Wednesday. This will either be on teams or sent home in their homework books.

 Please check planners regularly as notes and weekly spellings will be sent home in them.
