Autumn 2 - Amazing Animals
Amazing animals is a great topic to explore the world around us and become scientists, geographers, explorers and animal lovers!
This term we will be exploring animals from near and far. We will be continuing our investigations as scientist and looking at herbivores and carnivores. As a hook, Zoo lab will visit and present different animals to continue our exploration. To land our learning, the children will write fact files on different animals and present them to the school community.
In Geography, we will be Locating where we live on a map. Through song, the children will name and locate the 5 oceans and 7 continents. To finish, we will compare the UK to other country’s climates.
In literacy, the children will write a recount of our book of the half term, Elmer. We will talk about our emotions and how it's ok to be different.
In maths, we will be building on our place value, addition and subtraction skills.
Spring 1- We're on the Move
We hope that you enjoyed a fun filled Christmas break and the children are ready for a busy term of fun and learning! Our topic for Term 2 is ‘We're on the Move'.
In literacy, we will be learning how to write a story using noun phrases. We will be using the text: ‘ The Naughty Bus’ by Jan and Jerry Oke to help us spot nouns.
Please read with your child every day and talk to them about what they are reading. Ask them questions about the story, characters and plot. Can they predict what will happen next?
In Maths, this term we will continue to learn about addition and subtraction. Later in the term the children will be developing their of fractions and time.
