We start the spring term with our topic on Romans. An exciting presentation by ‘Steps in Time’ will help us learn about the daily life of a Roman soldier. Later in the term, we will visit Lullingstone Roman Villa and Eagle Heights. During lessons, we will learn where they came from and how they lived.

We will also use ‘George’s marvellous medicine’ by Roald Dahl to learn the features of instructional text. We will continue to further develop our skill and accuracy in using the four mathematical operations, including solving real life word problems, in maths. We will also learn to tell time using an analogue clock and learn the Roman numerals. After the half term break we will be working with weights, measures and capacity, as well as graphs.

In Science we will learn about the uses of everyday materials and investigate some of their properties.

Trading Places

We have another busy term ahead. Our topic is Trading Places, which is about similarities and differences between the human and physical geography of a small area of the United Kingdom, and of a contrasting non-European country.  We will also encompass learning about latitudes, longitudes, the Equator and earth’s hemispheres. In science we will be studying Living things and their habitats.

In addition to our main learning areas, we also hope to visit the Maidstone Museum and Ightham Mote. Details of dates and costing will be provided nearer the time. Children will have the opportunity to be trained in gymnastics and in playing squash as a part of PE sessions. Swimming will also commence our first week back.

 

As your child returns to school, please could you make a quick check that pencil cases, school uniform and PE kits are fully resourced. All children should have one named pencil case stocked with pencils, a handwriting pen, eraser, ruler, sharpener, glue stick and colouring pencils (all named please). Felt-tipped pens and gel pens are not required and are best left at home. Children’s uniform should also be clearly labelled so that any lost items can be returned quickly. Please could you also ensure that PE kits, including a warm jumper and trainers, are available in school every day and, once again, that they are clearly labelled.  If girls wear tights, spare socks are also required for all PE lessons, please. Finally, all children will need a named water bottle with a sports cap so that they can drink in class whenever they wish to. Your co-operation in helping your child to be fully resourced is really appreciated and helps the school day to run smoothly.

Homework this term will continue in the same routine for spellings, Times tables and maths.

It is also very important that children read as often as possible, discussing their books with an adult. A record of any reading should be made in the reading record books.
