Home Learning Spring Term
In English this term our work will focus around the stories The Cat in the Hat and Whoever You Are before half term and Same. Same but Different after the 'holiday'. In Maths we will continue to focus on developing Number and Shape Sense with an increasing focus on measurements in 'Shape'.
This half term we will be looking at Rocks and then Forces and Magnets in Science. In PSHE we will be focusing on our 'Emotional Literacy', continuing the work we started before the Christmas holiday around our understanding of us and who we are. As such we encourage these discussions at home and please ask for advice if needed.

In Geography we have a focus on what makes a city and a focus on our closest city of Newcastle. Again on any trips you have, when possible, we would encourage discussion around where you are going and what you might see. After half term our focus will shift to History where we will be comparing two cities, their history, where they are in the world and what they have done for us.

We continue to develop our Art and DT skills as well as our performance skills in Music. Our focus in RE will be the Christian faith in the build up to Easter. In PE we start with apparatus for gymnastics before moving on to work on our dancing skills in Dance. 

Alongside work that may be sent home, sometimes via Seesaw, we encourage you to engage in discussions with your child and as ever if you need any further support please get in touch. All of us in Green 5 are excited for the term ahead and all the learning we will be engaging with!
