Welcome to Class 7
Below are some of Class 7's motivational messages which help us to always try our best.
In English we will be reading the Lazy Lion and a range of other African stories. We will also be researching Africa using non-fiction books and the Internet. Also class 7 will retell the story of the Lazy Lion then they will write their own version of the story. Lastly we will research different African animals and then write a non-chronological report about their favourite animal.
In maths we will be looking at the composition of the number 100 and how it can be split into groups of 10, 20, 25 and 50. Also class 7 will be learning about number sequences and addition number facts. Throughout this half term we will be focusing on learning our 3, 4 and 8 times tables. In addition we will continue to work on our problem solving skills and develop a range of different strategies to help us work out different types of maths problems.
In Geography this term we will be learning about how the water cycle works. We will be learning about different vocabulary, features and processes related to the water cycle. The children will learn how to draw, label and describe the key features of the water cycle.
In Science we will be learning about plants and what they require to grow. We will also be looking at the functions of the different parts of the plant. Then we will look at different types of pollination and how seeds are dispersed.
We have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon so please remember to bring your PE kit.
We will send homework home on a Friday. The children will have a new spelling list, a Maths worksheet and a English worksheet each week. The homework will based on topics which have just been taught as a way of checking the children's understanding of the particular area. Please ensure their completed homework is returned for marking by the following Wednesday. Our weekly spelling test will also be on Wednesday.
Please encourage your child to read everyday and make a note in their reading diary. Also please encourage your child to visit the website Times Table Rock Stars.
