Urban Pioneers

Class 5 Curriculum Letter Summer Term 1 2016


Our work this term will be based on the theme of Urban Pioneers.


"Hop on the bus and take a trip downtown, where the lights are bright and every street has a story to tell.

Explore with fresh eyes the art of the city, then capture a moment in time – perhaps a reflection on a building or a shadow passing by. Make a map of your home town and find out how things have changed. Has time changed town life for the better?

How could you improve the urban environment for the better? Maybe add more colour? More light? More things to do?

Now light up the city with creations of your own…a statue, a light show, a monument or street art. The possibilities are endless so what will you choose?

You’re an urban pioneer…so get ready to go!"



To help your child you could…

  1. Share a book with your child, enjoy reading the book together and ask them some questions about it.
  2. Read the instructions for the weekly homework and, together, decide what needs to be done. Remember to encourage your child to use a neat handwriting style using a pencil. Give praise for work that has been done well. Try not to let your child leave it till the last moment!
  3. Check their homework, is it neat, carefully done? Are the spellings correct? Is their homework book in their bag reading to give in by Wednesday? Are they struggling? Why not speak to your child’s teacher on a Monday or suggest they go to homework club at Monday lunchtime.
  4. Test your child on their weekly spellings, maybe for 5 minutes each day. How many are they getting right? Is there a common spelling pattern? Can they improve on their daily score ready for their test on Friday?
  5. On a Friday afternoon, ensure your child has taken home their reading book, reading diary (both need to be in school each day) and their homework book.
  6. Ask them how well they did in their spelling test!
