Topic Overviews & Homework

This Term:


This term, we are going to be learning about World War 2, focussing on the War at Home.  We will learn about the outbreak of war, study the countries in the Allies and the Axis group and more! 



Autumn Term 1:

Last term, we learnt all about Harry Potter.  


We took a tour of the UK by following teams in the Quidditch Premier League!  We were even lucky enough to be taught a lesson by Warner Bros London themselves, all about the movie magic of Harry Potter.




Type Day Set Day Due Expectations
Reading Every day Every day Every child should spend an average of 15 minutes reading daily.  We ask that that the book title, page numbers and a small comment are recorded via Class Dojo each day.  They can complete this themselves, we just ask that you check to ensure they are reading each day and try to ask them questions about their book to help them retain key details. 
Maths Every day Every day The children in Kestrels have all been given a Doodle Maths login, which we encourage them to use to practise their core Maths skills every day.  This will help them to earn a higher streak and in turn, collect more stars!  Additionally, each Friday we are setting homework through Doodle Maths based on our classwork that week to reinforce objectives and skills.  Please pop in to see us if you have any questions.
Times Tables Friday Friday

The children will each be set a times table to practise during the week, ready for a test the following Friday.  It is very important that they continue to practise the quick recall of their tables even after they have completed their 12 times table.  Times Tables Rockstars is the recommended way to practise and is lots of fun!

Spellings Thursday Thursday Each week, the children will have 10 words to learn based around a theme (e.g. homophones).  They will be tested on these 10 words.  The Eagles have now all been given a Spelling Shed login to help them independently practise their spellings using a fun game. 
Topic/English 06.11.20 11.12.20 The children are invited to share their topic homework via Class Dojo to celebrate with the other children in class.  We can't wait to see the results of the hard work you have put in!
