Curriculum-Overview-2018-2019

Important Information

Homework is an essential part of your child’s learning, children are expected to read every day and complete a Maths and Spelling activity each week. = Homework will be given out on a Friday and must be returned on the following Friday. Remember, if you bring in your homework you will earn a dojo point!

PE will take place every week on Monday.  Please ensure your child has their full kit in school on this day in order to be prepared for the lesson and to receive a class dojo point.

Children will have a music lesson every Tuesday with a specialist music teacher.

Top Tips

*Read together.

*Discuss the meaning of the text.

*Keep practicing times tables

*Practice using maths in real-life situations e.g. reading timetables, money and telling the time.

*Make sure your child goes to sleep at a reasonable time.

*Encourage independence.

*Practice their spellings with them, help children to find the best strategy for them. Here are some spelling game ideas:

 

Autumn Curriculum

English

Firstly, this term, we are going to be reading and exploring stories with a dilemma; we will then plan and write our own story. We are going to writing an information about ‘gadgets’ and will be discussing Big Questions such as: Are gadgets always good to have?

Maths

This term we will be accessing fluency, reasoning and problem solving activities for the following learning objectives:

Autumn 1 –

Place Value

  • Number – Place Value Count in multiples of 6, 7, 9. 25 and 1000. Find 1000 more or less than a given number. Count forwards or backwards in steps of powers of 10 for any given number up to 1000000.
  • Recognise the place value of each digit in a four digit number (thousands, hundreds, tens and ones) Order and compare numbers beyond 1000 Read, write, order and compare numbers to at least 1000000 and determine the value of each digit.

 

  • Identify, represent and estimate numbers using different representations.
  • Round any number to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000 Round any number up to 1000000 to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10000 and 100000
  • Solve number and practical problems that involve all of the above and with increasingly large positive numbers. Solve number problems and practical problems that involve all of the above.
  • Count backwards through zero to include negative numbers. Interpret negative numbers in context, count forwards and backwards with positive and negative whole numbers including through zero.
  • Read Roman numerals to 100 (I to C) and know that over time, the numeral system changed to include the concept of zero and place value. Read Roman numerals to 1000 (M) and recognise years written in Roman numerals.

Number- Addition and Subtraction

  • Add and subtract numbers mentally with increasingly large numbers.
  • Add and subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction where appropriate. Add and subtract whole numbers with more than 4 digits, including using formal written methods (columnar addition and subtraction) Use rounding to check answers to calculations and determine, in the context of a problem, levels of accuracy.
  • Estimate and use inverse operations to check answers to a calculation.
  • Solve addition and subtraction two step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why. Solve addition and subtraction multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why.

Science

Living Things and Their Habitats

Pupils should be taught to:

  •   describe the differences in the life cycles of a mammal, an amphibian, an insect and a bird
  •  describe the life process of reproduction in some plants and animals

Earth and Space

  •  describe the movement of the Earth, and other planets, relative to the Sun in the solar system
  • describe the movement of the Moon relative the Earth
  • describe the Sun, Earth and Moon as approximately spherical bodies
  • use the idea of the Earth’s rotation to explain day and night.IPC – The RainforestRainforests once covered 14% of our world’s surface. Now they cover less than 5%. Every second, an area of the rainforest the size of a football field is being destroyed. Some scientists believe that, if we lose our rainforests, we might put our whole planet at risk. What will we do to help save the rainforest?

Explaining the Theme

In Geography, we’ll be finding out:

The Big Idea

  • About where rainforests are in the world
  • Which rainforest products we use in our everyday lives
  • About the lives of rainforest people and how they compare with our own
  • How and why the rainforest is being destroyed
  • Discovering the ways that people are trying to save the rainforest

In Art, we’ll be finding out:

  • About rainforest body art and painting our faces in a similar style
  • How we can use art to create a rainforest scene

In Technology, we’ll be finding out:

  • How to plan and make our own tropical fruit drink

In International, we’ll be finding out:

How different countries and organisations are helping to save our rainforests
