HISTORY: Ingenious Inventions!
Our exciting History topic for this term is 'Ingenious Inventions’ which is looking at the Victorian period. We will focus on the inventions of that period and explore the impact they had on the people of Britain. We are also looking forward to experiencing life for Victorian school children and learning all about Christmas traditions.
In English this term we will be developing our fiction and non-fiction skills in range of different text types. We will use our topic as a stimulus for writing too.
We will also be focusing on punctuation and grammar objectives and encouraging children to use them on their writing, such as types of conjunctions and parenthesis.
In our Maths lessons, we will be focusing on investigative and problem solving skills by using applying all the maths skills we have covered this year.
To help your child, we advise to regularly practise times tables and corresponding division facts.
In our Science lessons this term, we will be looking at Electricity. We will focus on the electrical circuit symbols, creating series and parallel circuits and will design our own electrical based toy.

We expect children to complete 10 minutes of daily reading of their home reader. This should be recorded in their Home Contact Book. These record will be checked in class regularly.
