Hello and welcome to Maple’s class page 😊
I’m Miss Bolton and I will be your class teacher in Maple class and we also have Miss Lacey and Mrs Goodall with us.
Have a read through what we will be focussing on this term and thank you for your support!
The topic which we will be focussing on this term will be ‘Local Landmarks’.
We will be exploring our local area in which in live and what landmarks make where we live unique.
We will focus on investigating the geographical features that surround our local area and explore where we are in the world. Following from this, we will be able to identify the differences between human made features and features which have been created naturally by Earth.
This understanding will lead us to exploring landmarks and by doing our own research, we will discover the landmarks that are within the UK and then seeing if we recognise any landmarks which may be within Lancashire. During our research, we will be using our computing skills to discover our local landmarks. This will draw on our History knowledge as we are going to research Darwen’s Jubilee Tower and discover the history behind it.
Following what we have learnt about our local area and landmarks, we will present the information we have gathered and be able to share it to others.
In Maths, our focus will start with number and place value and beginning to apply our knowledge for addition and subtraction. We will focus on solving number problems by partitioning and being able to explain how we achieved our answers.
Our English focus will begin by creating simple sentence structures based on the digital stimulus ‘For the birds’. Our sentences will be able to give a narrative to the digital stimulus and we will explore what is needed to create a structed sentence.
Following from this, we will read the fictional text ‘No-Bot the Robot’ use this to demonstrate how we can use a variety of different conjunctions. We will explore how adjectives can describe a noun and this will help us to apply our descriptive writing skills.
Homework will be uploaded onto SeeSaw on Fridays and shall be completed by the following Thursday each week 😊
Maple class have PE on a Thursday so please ensure your child have a kit in school.
Children are expected to read at home every night and their reading books will be changed on Tuesdays and Fridays. Children’s reading records must be signed at least twice before their book is changed.
Thank you for your support :)
