Useful Information

 

P.E is on a Wednesday afternoon. However, please ensure that your p.e kit is in school every day, as the timetable may change. Also, you will need to make sure that your kit is suitable for outdoor weather.

 

Homework is usually set on Thursday and will be expected in by the following Tuesday in order for it to be marked. You will receive a piece of homework relating to Literacy and one piece related to Maths each week.

 

Reading Records are checked every Friday.  We aim for children to read at least twice  each week to an adult, but children should be encouraged to read every day. Please sign reading records to indicate this. There will be a reading track in class for your child to complete.

We will be voyaging across the Atlantic to discover the continent of North America and all its amazing countries, cities and landscapes. We will identify the 23 countries of North America, from the vast lands of the USA and Canada down through Central America and on to the Caribbean islands. On the way we will explore the various geographical features of different areas of North America and compare them with their own locality.

During the 2nd half of term, we will explore one of the great wonders of the natural world - The Grand Canyon. We will learn about how the canyon was formed, the climate conditions and different environments in and around it, how the land is used for tourism and by American Indian tribes.
