We kick off the Autumn Term by all getting to know each other in our Establishment Phase. This is where will be doing lots of Welcome Back activities. We will be using this first week to do lots of team building and revision. Our School values will underpin our school days and this term we will be focusing on the importance of being resilient, positive and courageous. We then move on to reading two FANTASTIC books: Tyger and War Horse in our English sessions and learning all about a refugee's journey in Geography. After half term we will learn about what life was like in WW1. The children will be delving into the process of soup making from field to bowl. Alongside that, we will be learning all about being healthy in our science lessons. We finish the term with a Christmas Carol concert.
To begin the Spring Term, we will be learning all about The Greeks, including making sandals in DT! After this, our focus moves on to "Wonder." In Science, we will focus on the Circulatory System and Evolution and Inheritance, in which we study the developments made by Charles Darwin. Spring term also brings a trip to the River Arun, where we will complete fieldwork activities such as measuring the depth and speed of the river and visiting the mouth of the river. We will be observing signs of Spring, as part of our Art topic, which will also include studying the works of David Hockney.
To end their time at Edward Bryant, we have a fantastic Summer Term planned for the children. We will start the term by reading about a strange mythical beast in Jabberwocky, by Lewis Carroll, as well as learning how to classify real living things in Science.
Alongside this we will be continuing our preparation for the National Curriculum Assessments (SATS). Please continue to support your child with the homework set each week.
Over the course of this term, we will also be learning about electricity
The highlight of the term will be our five-day residential trip to Devon. This trip will give the children the chance to experience a number of different activities designed to develop their confidence and skills, both as individuals and as part of a team.
We then say goodbye to children with transition visits to secondary schools, a leavers service and the Leavers BBQ.
The children’s PE lessons are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. However, we ask that the children have their kits in school all week. Please help us by labelling every piece of clothing your child brings to school. We would like to remind you that hair must be tied back and earrings should not be worn.
It is, of course, vital that you hear your child read as often as possible and discuss the books they are reading with them; especially any vocabulary they are unsure of. We ask the children to read everyday at school and we expect them to read everyday at home, reading aloud to an adult at home at least three times a week. We will be monitoring how often children are quizzing on Accelerated Reader and encourage children to now take vocabulary quizzes as well as comprehension ones.
The children receive spellings every week to be tested on a Thursday.
English and Maths homework will be set online through IXL every week.
Please keep checking back for any updates to any of the termly overviews.
