Summer 1

Our enquiry question this half term is

                          How can we reduce climate change to save our future?


This is a Geography based unit, during which we will look at climate zones and different biomes around the world. We will consider the impact climate change has had on these biomes and ways in which we can help slow down the changes and protect the future of the Earth.

Seesaw is our new virtual classroom, we will be using it in school and at home. Teachers are able to set work, mark, leave comments and make announcments about school on here. All parents need to give permission for children to use the app.

We will be using this app to set English based homework every week and Maths homework on alternative weeks with Mathletics. 


- Reading at home should be done as frequently as possible. Children should bring their reading book and reading record to school every day and take them home each night. We are aiming for 5 a week and children will receive team points based on how many times they read at home in a week. 




Mathletics is updated regularly with tasks. Children know their login username and passwords but can check with me. They should login and complete their assigned tasks before progressing on to Live Mathletics...let's see how many points we can get! Click on the logo to go there now!

Times Tables rockstar- A fantastic app/ website that lets us battle each other and test our times table knowledge, each child has been given their own individual login and can play individual games and try to beat their score or challenege others from all over the world in a safe environment. This has had a positive impact on our times table knowledge in school. The children will be tested on their times tables knowledge each Monday and Thursday.
