We’re off on an exciting expedition with Charles Darwin and his crew on HMS Beagle. Can you trace his route across the vast ocean? Stop at the magical Galápagos Islands to see the amazing species that helped Charles Darwin to develop his theory of evolution by natural selection. Do you know what’s so special about a lava lizard, or why the blue-footed booby has blue feet? See how animals adapt to their environments over time and meet some of the world’s greatest explorers and naturalists. Imagine how humans will evolve in millions of years. It’s a scary thought. Ready to trace the origin of species? Let’s set sail.
The children will learn to pronounce cognate and other sports accurately from text, applying their phonics knowledge. They practise using a bi-lingual dictionary to look up unknown words. They describe sports, using simple sentences with 'je fais' ,‘je joue’, 'c'est' and 'il y a ' for their peers to guess. They learn how to say which sports they like/dislike doing, using the verb ‘aimer' + infinitive verb .
Each child should read for 30-40 minutes a day and complete at least 3 short and one long reading journal entries a week. They should complete at least one Read Theory quiz a week.
English and Maths home learning is set each week to practise skills taught in class and weekly spellings that teach spelling rules and patterns.
If your child needs to self-isolate, individually or as a whole class, the school office will email home their home learning on a weekly basis. If you have any questions or queries, please contact the office and your class teacher will be in contact with you.
