Our learning this term:

 

Tremors. Overwhelming and mighty, Mother Nature’s awesome energies hiss and roar deep within the earth. Plates collide, spewing lava. Rocks rain down and mud slides in torrents. Towns and cities vanish under ashen clouds.

Discover the dangerous and ferocious world of natural disasters, and glimpse their savage and deadly effects. Visit the ancient city of historic Pompeii, frozen in time, then create your own blistering explosions from model volcanoes that fire foamy lava. Discover the properties of rocks shaped by the Earth’s breath-taking power.

Watch out! Volcanologists detect formidable rumblings from an extinct volcano in Scotland’s capital. Red alert! What would you do?

Homework guidance:

 

Homework is set on a Friday and due to be returned on a Wednesday. This includes:

 

-An optional list of fun and interactive tasks related our topical learning. These tasks are provided purely to give ideas, for those who would like to do some extra. This will not be marked, but is welcomed to be shared in class.

-A pre-learning task. These weekly tasks are essential and are expected to be completed because they relate to the up-and-coming learning in the next week. By completing these tasks, it will help pupils to gain a deeper and more advanced knowledge ready for our next lessons. 

-A Spelling task. A small list is provided, pupils can choose one task a week to help to further embed their learning of the weekly words. Spellings are differentiated according to pupil's needs.

-Mathletics. 2 or 3 tasks are set weekly that again are in-line with pre-learning. The theme of the tasks set, will cover what is coming up in our next week's learning giving pupils a chance to get ahead and practise the skills needed for those lessons. 

 

-Above all, the most important task, is to ensure children are reading for at least 10 minutes a day. This should be written into their reading record and signed by an adult. Pupils work towards achieving 50 reads, 100 reads, 150 reads and 200 reads throughout the year, so everyday counts!
