Christmas: The children will learn the main features of the Christmas story and understand some of the difficulties faced by the Characters in the story.
Parables and Sayings of Jesus: The children will learn about the important Parables and Sayings of Jesus.They will also learn and understand that the Kingdom of God was part of the language used by Jesus to explain his preaching about welcoming and accepting God’s presence through him. They will also be thinking about some ways in which the Church lives out this teaching of Jesus.
Our class text for this half term will be the picture book ‘FArTHER’, which will link well with our PSHE unit ‘Dreams and Goals’.
The book uses powerful images to help tell the story, which is great for developing the children’s inference skills.
FArTHER is the story of a father who dreams of flying. However, when he goes to war and does not return, his son attempts to finish where he left off and makes his dream come true.
We will have PE on a Monday and Thursday afternoon.
Please ensure that full kit stays in school throughout the term. Children will also participate in PE lessons outdoors (weather permitting) frequently throughout the week. Trainers suitable for outdoors would be helpful.
Children will continue to receive daily Maths and Literacy homework, which is to be completed each night.
On Thursdays, children will receive one piece of either Maths or English homework plus one piece of homework linked to a foundation subject (Art, Science, MFL, Computing, Music,
Geography, History etc). This will be due in on the following Tuesday.
Keep an eye out on the messenger for any specific dates.
