Triton 2022 - 2023

Mr Leathers

Welcome to Triton!

This year Triton will be taught by myself (Mr. Leathers) with support from Mrs Payne and Mrs Burden. Ms. R. Jones will also be woking with the children throughout the year to focus on developing key skills required to access the children's learning. Please see the Autumn Parent Overview attached for more detailed information about what your child will be learning.

Classroom Information

Every morning the children will be expected to be in school by 08:30. During this time, we will be completing either Reading Plus or Guided Reading activities. This is to build up key skills required so it is important that everybody is in on time. The children all have access to Reading Plus and Times Table Rockstars, which we will encourage them to take part in every evening. PE will be taught on a Thursday afternoon, so please make sure that the class come in dressed appropriately - they can wear their PE kits/sportswear to school and for any sports clubs.

Topic

Our topic for the Autumn term is World War 2 and we will be focussing on the causes, events and countries involved. In science, we will be investigating Forces and linking this to our topic through experiments whenever possible.. If you have anything interesting to share, please let us know. We will try to post as much work as possible on our Twitter page each day @DeePointTriton or @DeePoint. We have already loves some of the stories shared, medals brought in and photographs shown so please, keep them coming!

English & Maths

During our English lessons, we are writing a diary to focus on a narrative style and then working on a more formal award speech. There will be a big focus on spelling, punctuation and grammar throughout these sessions.

In maths, we are devleoping our knowledge of number and place value as well as using these skills to develop our fluency and reasoning. Fractions is our main focus this term and the children will be finding equivalent fractions, simplifying, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing as well as problem solving throughout.

Steps to Read

As a school, we have started to use Steps to Read to develop fluency and comprehension across the school. This again links really well to our topic and should deepen the children's knowledge even further linked to the Battles of Britain. We will study a variety of genres throughout these sessions and familiarise the children with the layout, features and enable them to answer a variety of comprehension questions.

Science

We will be studying evolution and inheritance throughout this term. There will be lots of opportunities for investigations and for the children to develop their ability to work scientifically.
