Welcome to Summer Term in Rowlings Class (Class Four)

What a view busy term we have ahead of us - even busier than our short-and-snowy Spring Term!

The Summer Term Curriculum Newsletter is attached below and a paper copy has already gone home to you, along with a reminder copy of the KS2 Curriculum Words from the National Currciulum. Please help your child to learn these, as we will be using the No Nonsense Spelling scheme in class.

Our sporting and academic achievements have already started very well, with great success for Class Four in the Futsal, and superb placements in the Cross Country (at RHS last month).  The Spelling Bee outcome was excellent too, with Year 5 and Year 6 children reaching fourth place in our heat.  Great results for all participants! We have a Hockey festival, a bowling event and of course the annual Quad Kids events coming up too - more details to follow.

Our Year 6 childen are busy preparing for their end of Key Stage 2 assessments which begin on 14th May and end on 17th. This is an important week and we wish everyone well.

Meanwhile we are remembering to celebrate our achievements by presenting and speaking, as well as listening, to each other: you can see below some of the excellent Anderson Shelter homework which was individually showcased by each child as part of our World War Two topic learning last term.

If you have any questions, please always feel free to come and chat with me at the end of the school day.

Homework

Year 6 homework will largely be past papers as practise for SATs - with a focus on using the mark schemes to identify how to improve.  This will include the GRammar and punctuation, spellling, reading and maths papers.

Year 5 will be focussing on grammar, with particular attention to the corect use of apostrophes.

We have seen a positive increase in daily reading and, as diaries are checked weekly, we are happy to be able to reward children who read everyday (with a learning merit).

Lastly, as always, homework is set on Friday and due in on Wednesday.

Dates for the DIary

The dates for our trip are still to be confirmed, as it is such a packed term.  Quad Kids will be happening on 13th June, details to be confirmed.

May 11th - online safety, tea and crumpets for Class 4 parents

May 22nd - NSPCC workshop for Class 4 children

May 24th - Pentecost experience - for all children

May 25th - school disco

Further dates will be announced in our school newsletter, or added here.

 

Other news

Our opic of volcanoes is giving us lots of reasons to get excited - from finding out about the different types of rock formed when a volcano erupts, to the discovery of how the history of Pompeii evolved as a result of a dramatic volcanic event.  Children have been drawing maps and identifying where volcanoes are found around the world, and we have watched how geologists explain the reasons for different characteristics of rocks.  This is, however, making it quite tricky to organise our class trip this term because there isn't a great abundance of volcanoes in Suffolk!

 

We will be worked with EYFS later this term, to collaborate in Science adn leearn together about our Solar System.

 

In Literacy, the children have written to the new Royal baby, providing their advice on how he can make the best of his future life! They have also written some splendid poems based on the journey of a chimpanzee into space in the Sixties - some amazing language structures were included.  We are really examining how we can improve our punctuation at the moment, too.

 

In P.E., children are working collaboratively to design an obstacle course - complete with instructions, score sheets and even risk assessments!
