New Topic 21/03/22 - 13/05/22
Our topic this term is called 'Going Wild'. Please see the curriculum letter above that gives an overview of what we will be doing.
In English we are writing a story based on myths and legends. We are basing this on the story 'a crow's tale' by - naomi howarth.
in maths we will be finishing the topic of shape and moving on to fractions and then measure.
Please see above for our knowledge organiser which shows the knowledge that the children will be learning over the course of the topic.
TOPIC 21/02/22 - 18/03/22
Our topic this term is called 'Jurassic Hunter'. The topic has a history focus, telling the inspirational story of Mary Anning.
Whilst the topic covers predominantly history, there are also key geography, science and art skills embedded throughout.
In English this term we are learning about instruction writing. We will be writing about how to make bird feeders, which we will then create and hang around the school to encourage our local bird wildlife. Throughout our literacy unit we will be focusing on being consistent with known punctuation, and on learning new punctuation - such as the use of brackets. and bullet points. We will be exploring the use of imperative verbs, alliteration, adjectives and superlatives. We will also be thinking about handwriting and the correct formation of our letters.
As part of this topic, we hope to visit Badby Woods to study the bird population and within school we will research what birds like to eat so that we can include this in our bird feeders!
In Mathematics this term we will continue our unit on multiplication and division. This covers a basic understanding of 'grouping' and 'sharing' and the multiplication facts within the 2, 5 and 10 times tables. We will then move on to look at statistics, including how to tally and interpret data from a bar chart, and then we will spend two weeks learning about 2D and 3D shapes and their properties.
