English

In English, we will be focusing on the text 'The Saga of Erik the Viking' by Terry Jones in the first half-term. The children will discover how the Viking's impacted Britain. We will also focus on the text 'Sky Song' by Abi Elphinstone in the second half-term. To begin the new academic year, we will focus on poetry with the theme of new beginnings, friendship, resilience and self-belief to tie in with PSHE.

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, which takes place on Friday.

Maths

In Maths this term, we will be focusing on place value and number skills. As well a fluency skills, the children will regulalrly be using their reasoning and problem solving skills to solve mathematical problems and challenges. Children will be using concrete and abstract resources to support their learning. Children are encouraged not only to practice their arithmetic skills during lessons but in their own time too. Children can access TTRockstars at home and rewards are given to the classes who access the website regularly. 

R.E 

During the whole year all subjects and teaching will reflect the school's Catholic ethos.

In the first term, we will be focusing on ‘OURSELVES’ and will be exploring how we are created in the image and likeness of God. Then, we will explore Marriage, commitment and service through the topic ‘LIFE CHOICE’. Towards the end of the term, we will explore the topic ‘HOPE’.

Science

During our weekly lessons, there will be lots of opportunities for practical investigations to develop our scientific knowledge. This term, we will be focusing on material properties. By the end of the term we will be able to distinguish between an object and the material from which it is made and describe its properties and identify and name a variety of everyday materials, including wood, plastic, glass, metal. 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

P.E- The children will have P.E on a Monday 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 Wednesday. This will consist of spellings, Maths and relevant activities (linking to what we have been learning).

Please encourage your child to read at home three times a week; 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 and children are rewarded for reading consistently. 

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

Thank you,

Miss Roberts and Miss McNulty
