Our topic during this term is 'What did the Romans do?'. The children will be travelling back in time to learn all about the Romans, how they lived and what they did. 

In English, we will be focusing on the text 'Wonder' by R J Palacio. This will be during our Awe and Wonder week.  We will also explore a text that will tie in with our Roman topic. 

We will work on improving our spelling, punctuiation and grammar throughout English and other curriculum subjects. Spellings will be given out as homework each week. The children are to practise their spellings for homework so that they are ready for their weekly spelling test every Friday.

In Maths this term, we will be focusing on multipication and division, fractions, decimals and percentages, measurement and geomerty. In Maths, the children will regulalrly be using their reasoning and problem solving skills to solve mathematical problems and challenges. It is essential that the children know all of their times tables. It is expected that children know their 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12 times tables by Year 4. We will be practising these regularly in class and it would be highly beneficial for the children to also practise at home.

All children have a login for Times Table Rockstars so please access this if possible. It is a fun way for the children to practise their times tables.

In R.E this term, we will be starting the topic of 'Community'. The children will begin by exploring life in the local Christian community. We will also focus on the topics of 'Giving and Receiving'.

In Science, we will be exploring 'Animals'. The children will begin to understand teeth, eating and digestion. We will also cover food chains, identifying producers and predators and prey.

We also have an exciting opportunity to where the children will be involved in Drama lessons each week. All of these lessons will focus on the British Values.

Important Information

P.E- The children will have P.E on a Tuesday afternoon each week. Please make sure that your child brings in their P.E kit for this.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be returned by the following Thursday. This will consist of spellings, times tables and relevant activities (linking to what we have been learning).

Please encourage your child to read at home as this is important to their overall progress. Please sign your child's reading diary at least three times per week. We monitor reading at home every day. Children will receive 1 dojo point for each time they have read at home.

Please check the school website, twitter and newsletters for any unpcoming events. Keep an eye on our school twitter page (@StGerardsWidnes) to see what your child has been up to.
