Homework

Please make sure you read your child's school reading book with them as often as possible. Reading is a 'building block' on which much of their other learning rests, and regular reading at home makes a huge difference in the classroom. Also, please practise your child's spellings at home.

 

Reading Leader Board

Whenever your child reads at home, they will receive a sticker on the Reading Leader Board. Stickers mean prizes. KEEP READING!

 

Children may receive home learning work. These activities are for you and your child to practise at home to support their learning. They do not need to be returned to school. 

 

Curriculum

In the summer term, our topic will be 'Seasides.' We will also be looking at the geographical features of seaside areas and comparing them to Bramley. We will also be going on a field trip to Scarborough. We will observe the physical and human features of the coastal town, and we will also visit the RNLI station to learn about water safety.

 

In science, our focus will be on plants. We will learn the names of the basic parts of flowering plants, including trees. We will grow some plants and look at what plants need to survive. We will also investigate what seeds need in order to germinate. We will learn some names of wild and garden plants. Maybe you could visit a garden centre and have a look at the plants and their names.

 

We will be reading 'The Whale and the Snail.' We will learn the words and actions to a simple version of this story. We will then write our own version of the story. 

 

In maths, we will focus on numbers to 100 and practical division and multiplication. We will also learn about halves and quarters.
