Maths

We follow strategies based on Singapore Maths at JH Godwin. This involves allowing children to experience  concepts in concretly (hands on) in depth before progressing on to pictorial representations, followed by abstract representations. The children deepen their learning and demonstrate mastery of a concept through finally and problem solving and reasoning activities. 

See below for a guide to our learning focuses throughout the year.

English

This year we will be basing our English on the Read into Write units, using stunning picture books and novels to really inspire us and develop our vocabulary.

In English we will also be developing our grammar, punctuation and spelling.

PE

In PE this year, we will be looking at lots of team sports such as football, tag rugby, dodgeball, basket ball, cricket and rounders. We will also develop our skills in gymnastics and athletics. PE is on a Monday and a Thursday, please make sure your PE kit is in school everyday!

 

Reading Essentials

Please read with your child 5 times per week at least. 

Write the book title and a comment in the reading record.

Write in any other reading that happens at home – not just school books e.g. Football mags, comics, fact books, short stories etc.

 

X tables

X tables are very important in team 3, please practice these with your children at home. 

Why not practice your X tables with a game of Hit the Button?

 

Everyone also has their own log-in for TT Rock Stars. See Mr Stark if you have any problems with this.

 

HAPPY LEARNING!
