Does Invasion Always Change a Country's Culture?

This term our project will focus on History and the Anglo-Saxon and Viking Invasions of Britain.  

We will be exploring why the Romans left Britain, who the Anglo-Saxons were and where they came from, how they lived and their religious beliefs. After half term, we will be learning about the Vikings and how they came to invade Britain.  

 

 

English 

In English we are learning to write a non-Chronological report about the Anglo-Saxons. We have started by learning model non-chronological report using Talk 4 Writing and are creating a story map for each paragraph, before we then write our own non-chronological reports. 

 

Maths 

In maths we are learning to understand the place value of numbers to 10,000, compare and order numbers to 10,000 and round numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. 

 

Science

Our first science topic is 'What's That Sound?' where we will learning about sound and sound sources and how sound travels.

 

PSHE 

 

Computing 

We are learning about online safety, including how we know when an e mail is safe to open, what the term ‘phishing’ means, how to report a website, fake news and what it means to be SMART online. 

Reminders

PE days are Tuesday (Netball) and Wednesday (Gymnastics).

PE kit : White Layer de la Haye logo top, Navy blue sport shorts, trainers. 

 

Homework 

Reading: Children are expected to read at home 5 days a week minimum, either with an adult or on their own. Please ensure children bring their reading journal and reading book to school every day. 

Times Tables Rock Stars: Children should access Times Tables Rockstars at home every day for 10 minutes. Being able to recall times tables is essential to success in Mathematics and underpins many mathematical concepts. Children should know their times tables to 12 x 12 by the end of year 4.

Spellings: Spellings will be set for homework on a Monday. Spellings will then be tested on a Friday.

Times Table Rockstars

Times Tables Rock Stars: Children should access Times Tables Rockstars at home every day for 10 minutes. Being able to recall times tables is essential to success in Mathematics and underpins many mathematical concepts. Children should know their times tables to 12 x 12 by the end of year 4.

The Multiplication Tables Check: The multiplication tables check (MTC) is statutory for primary schools. The purpose of the MTC is to check whether children can recall their times tables fluenty, as this is essential for future success in maths. It is an on-screen check consisting of 25 times tables questions. Children will be able to answer 3 practice questions before taking the actual check and they will then have 6 seconds to answer each question. 

The MTC will take place in June 2023. 

Children are regularly playing Times Tables Rockstars at school and it is expected that they play at home for 10 minutes per day. 

If you have any questions about the MTC, please feel free to contact me although more information will be shared after Christmas.
