Skylarks 2019 - 2020

Welcome to Skylarks Class Page    

Our class teacher is Miss Thwaites and our teaching assistant is Mrs Hulse.

Spring Term

This year we will continue to run the theme of Identity throughout the year. During this term we will be learning all about Our Local Ancestors. This term we will look specifically at the Vikings and Anglo-Saxons; exploring where they came from and what they did. We will design, create and make our own Viking shields through using Viking art on the front to demonstrate a deepened understanding. To enhance our understanding we will be visiting the Weaver Hall Museum in Janurary to gain more information about the Vikings. In Science, we will be looking at animals, including humans; specifically focusing on understanding life cycles and how reproduction takes place.

Writing 

 This term we will be focusing on two stories to inspire our writing work. In Spring one we will be focusing on the book ‘Arthur and the Golden Rope’ written by Joe Todd Stanton. 

 

Maths 

In our Spring term we will be focusing on multiplication and division, measurement- area and perimeter, fractions, decimals and percentages. The children are starting a new scheme of maths learning 'Power Maths' which is going to be very exciting. 

A big focus in our maths will be continuing to learn practice and recap our times tables. The children will be using Time Tables Rockstars to help them to achieve this. The log ins for this will be located in the children’s reading diaries.

 

Autumn Term

This year we will be running the theme of Identity throughout the year. During this term we will be learning all about Our Local Ancestors.
