Welcome to Class 12

In English we will be writing our own narratives based on the mythical story 'Arthur and the Golden Rope' written by Joe Todd-Stanton. We will then move on to writing and editing newpaper reports

 

In maths we will be focusing on multiplication and division. We will begin by multiplying a four-digit number by one-digit and two-digit numbers using a formal written method. We will also divide numbers up to four-digits by a one-digit number using the formal written method of short division which will include remainders. Finally we will be multiplying and dividing whole numbers and decimals by 10, 100 and 1,000.  

 

In science our focus will be 'Living Things and their Habitats'. We will learn about the process of reproduction and the life cycles of plants, mammals, amphibians, insects and birds. 

 

In geography we will be answering the question: What causes the Earth to shake? We will be looking at what causes an earthquake and learning about plate tectonics. 

 

In DT we will be making our very own rollercoasters! 

 

In music we will be having our wind instrument tuition with our peripatetic instructors on Wednesday afternoons. 

 

In French we will be learning about food and drink relating to breakfast.

 

In outdoor PE we will be focusing on netball. In indoor PE we will move onto gymnastics. 

Physical Education

Outdoor PE will be every Monday and indoor PE will be every Thursday. Please come to school wearing your PE kit on those days. Girls can you please remember to tie your hair back too. 

HOMEWORK

We will send homework home on a Friday. The children will have a new spelling list and a maths book each week. They will also have a grammar and comprehension homework on alternate weeks. Please ensure their completed homework is returned for marking by the following Friday.

 

Our weekly spelling test will be on a Thursday.

 

Please encourage your child to visit the website Times Table Rock Stars whereby they can practice their times table skills.

Your child has access to MyMaths too. They will be able to practice a range of mathematical skills.

It would be great if you could also listen to them read everyday.

Thank you.
