This term in Pavilion Class...
Spring term: We have already started our topic on the Tudors through our visit to The Theatre Royal to see the Horrible Histories performance of ‘The Terrible Tudors’. The children loved the performance and it helped consolidate the research we have already undertaken as well as stirred up a bloodthirsty desire to find out more about those gruesome crimes and punishments through the Tudor period!
In literacy, we will be developing research skills, writing non-chronological reports, writing diaries in role as a various Tudor characters and exploring newspapers linked to famous Shakespearean stories. We will also revise many grammar terms and spelling patterns in preparation for the KS2 SATS.
Maths lessons will continue to focus on mental Maths skills, ensuring the children speed up mental calculations on the 4 operations, develop efficient written methods for the 4 operations and develop understanding of multi-step word problems. In shape work, we will look at translation, reflection and rotation of shapes as well as revise the properties of 2d shapes and coordinates.
Many children have already competed in the indoor athletics competition, PE lessons will continue to develop sprint starts, relays, standing jumps and achieving personal best targets.
