Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely half term!
This term we will be celebrating Eisteddfod and we will be asking parents to come into school to watch our performance. We will also be focusing on our new inquiry 'Are all identities represented in Wales?' The main focus of this inquiry is to look at how we are represented in Wales both through the local councils and the Welsh Government. We will also be delving further into stereotyping and how people from different nationalities should be treated equally as citizens within Wales. This will then give us the opportunity to present, discuss, debate and portray our own opinions as ethically, informed citizens.
Literacy, Language and Communication
To help us express our own opinions and ideas on how we can become informed citizens, we will be writing a speech and presenting this through a debate with our peers. We will be looking at all the ways in which every individual is represented within the local authority and Welsh Government.
Throughout the term, we will also be developing our comprehension skills in our Guided Group Reading sessions and practicing our spellings everyday.
Mathematics and Numeracy
This term we will be focusing on fractions and decimals! We will be using lots of creative strategies to support our understanding and we will also be challenging ourselves through reasoning and problem solving activities. We will be improving our mental strategies for multiplication and division, whilst also using formal written methods which we can use for more complex calculations.
Throughout the term, we will also be working on quick recall of our times tables up to 12 x 12. We will also continue to develop our ability to mentally bridge numbers when adding and when subtracting.
This term we will be returning to gymnastics and focusing on tag rugby for our PE sessions. Remember to wear your PE to school and bring a water bottle to stay hydrated!
