Summer term in Mousehole class!

 

Our topic for the summer term, we will be 'The Tudors'.

 

See the links below for the 'Off with your Head!' summer medium term plan and the topic themed Chili challenge homework. Please encourage your children to take part in this creative homework. The children will have their work displayed in our homework celebration area. 

 

 

In our computing lessons, the children will use Discovery coding to design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, test existing programs to see how they could be improved.

 

In RE we will be learning about Christianity. We will start by looking at why do some people believe in God and some people do not, making connections between what people believe about God and the impact of this belief on how they live. The children will look at different views on theism, agnosticism and atheism and express their own thoughts about why people believe in God or not. In the second half of the term, we will look at how people in Cornwall express their spirituality and how and why Cornwall is an important place of spirituality.

 

Our 'Windows, mirrors and doors' spirituality sessions will be taught alongside virtual collective worship on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Shine celebrations on Fridays. 

 

In our PSHE lessons we will be engaging in the Scarf scheme of work based around 'Rights and Responsibilities'.

 

PE will normally take place on Monday afternoon. We will be learning about Athletics in the first half of term and then rounders and cricket for the second half of term . PE may be prone to last minute rescheduling due to ongoing restrictions and so I ask that kits are in school and stay in the cloak room for the duration of the half term. 

 

Please practise the Stargazey, year 4 or year 5 spellings with your child as often as possible, a test will be given each Friday.

 

The children’s reading records will be checked daily by an adult to make sure that they are reading regularly and that they are accumulating reads for their reading karate bands.

 

Year 4 children will be taking their online times table check in June; therefore, the learning of times tables is of even more importance this year. It would be beneficial for children to practise their tables up to 12x12 as much as possible at home.

 

Building Learning Power

Our learning power for this term is 'perseverance'. We will be looking to inspire all of our children to be  engaged in their learning as much as possible and to keep trying even when learning is tricky.
