Curriculum

This term, Peake Class are learning all about castles. We will be exploring why they were built and who lives in them, as well as comparing our own houses to castles and identifying what is the same and what is different. We will use the internet to help us find out if dragons exist today, and we will work together to plot an escape from Rapunzel's tower. Using a variety of rich texts to help us, we will think about the question: ‘do all princesses need rescuing?’. We will also be making our own magic paintbrushes, constructing a bridge for a moat and designing and testing a trap for a dragon. We will end the term with our very own Rotherfield Royal Ball!

Useful Information

Welcome to Peake class!  We love to hear of the children’s achievements at home, so please do share these with us on Tapestry.

How to help at home

 Reading

Please try to read with your child every day if possible and note it in their reading record when you do. Books are changed one team per day.

 Writing

Try to encourage your child to practise their letter formation at home.. Help them to understand the purpose and importance of writing by drawing their attention to when you are writing and showing them what you are doing – shopping lists, notes, thank you cards, etc.

Maths

Involve your child in everyday counting (how many socks are in the laundry pile?; how many biscuits are on the plate?), estimating (how many pieces of fruit do you think there are in the fruit bowl?) and counting out objects from a larger group (can you get four spoons from the cutlery drawer for pudding?). Play board games to reinforce recognition of dice numbers. Draw your child’s attention to number, shape and patterns in the environment.
