Our topic for Summer 2 is:
Where can we go for a great day out?
During this topic we will be looking at what the children enjoy doing and what makes a great day out.
In English we will be looking at traditional tales, retelling the stories and changing them to make our own versions. This includes seeing how stories are structured by looking at a story mountain and trying to use all the things we have learnt this year in our writing. We will also be looking at how to write different types of sentences within our writing. Additionally we will be looking at poetry – this includes rhyming poems, adverb poems and list poems.
We will be focussing on the spelling patterns that the children will be bringing home as spellings. As well as any sounds the children are struggling with. Please continue to practise these at home ready for the spelling test on a Wednesday.
This half term the children will e focusing on the following areas of mathematics:
* Number: Place Value (within 100)
* Measurement: Money
Any extra support you can give at home in these areas would be much appreciated.
Children will be taught to:
· Use different mediums to create observational drawings.
· Using shadows to create art.
· Research a famous artist and how we can recreate their paintings.
This term we will carry on looking at different animals and animals that we may see in different places around the world and in our country. We are also lucky enough to be having a visitor coming to school to show us some different animals we may have never heard of before. We will also carry on looking after our plants and seeing how they grow over time. Additionally we will be focusing on recycling and why we need to recycle different materials.
We will be researching animals from different countries. We will also be looking at how other countries spend their daily lives and how their environment may change how they spend their days out.
We will be looking at traditional tales and discussing where and when they were written. We will also be researching how people used to spend their days out and how our days out and entertainment may have changed throughout the years.
During PE this half term, we will be focusing on striking and fielding sports. To do this we will have a big focus on throwing and catching as these are key skills to lots of sports and games. Therefore the children will develop improved hand-eye coordination through ball play and various activities.
Music will be covered by Mrs Powell-Thomas on Tuesday afternoons.
