Year 3 Learning Narrative – Summer Term 2019

We start the summer term with a bit of excitement in Year 3. The children will return back after the Easter break, to find that the classrooms have been trashed and an egg has been laid. Who has done this? Where has the egg come from? CCTV footage will reveal alarming news. The children will put their research skills to the test as they try to find out more about what has happened. Newspaper reports will be written and letters to Mrs Kidd to try and persuade her to let us keep the hatchling.
After half term, we will be learning about our local area and a trip to the beach and local area will be organised to enhance this.
Throughout the term, the children will continue to develop their mathematical skills, learning more about fractions, shape and the four operations. In Science, we will be finding out about Rocks and Soils and growing plants.

At White Meadows Primary we use the Read Write Inc. phonics programme across both Key Stages up to Year 3. This phonics scheme provides a systematic approach to literacy, both reading and writing, which is fun and engaging. This is supplemented with the use of phonetically decodable books from Oxford Reading Tree and the Phonic Bug schemes, along with a range of other texts. Further details on how you can support your child can be found on the Read Write Inc website, www.ruthmiskin.com.
In addition to the above programme, we also use the Big Write and Big Maths schemes and Little Big Maths in Foundation Stage.

Year 4 Learning Narrative – Summer Term 2019

The summer term sees us travel back in time to Roman Britain with our topic Swords, Shields and Sandals. This will include a stunning start with a local historian, learning about the ways of life with genuine artefacts from the Roman period and thinking about similarities and differences between lives then and our lives now. Throughout the topic we will be immersing ourselves with the tactics of the Roman army and create Roman shields, ready for our battle on Littlehampton beach!

In Summer 2 we will explore a local area, Arundel, through history. This will begin at the Norman invasion and the building of the Keep and will continue through to the Georgian and Victorian influences of the jailhouse. During this topic we will discover Arundel with local archaeologists who have curated a unique and bespoke learning experience for the children. In PE we will be honing our athletics skills on the field ready for Sports Day!

Year 6 Learning Narrative – Summer Term 2019

For the first half of the Summer Term, our topic will be “Survival.” Looking at the children’s books by Bear Grylls, we will be writing a non-fiction “Survival Guide” for an extreme environment and then a story about survival. In Maths, we will be consolidating everything we have learnt, revising and practising ready for the SATs. In week four of the term, we will take our SATs tests. After they are finished, we will be focusing on writing and geography skills. Following half term, we will begin to work on our end of year production, learning songs, lines and dances, building scenery and designing costumes, while creating our own songs to the music we are studying.
