“It’s a Sailor’s life for me!”

We have a very busy, final half term ahead. Our topic is “It’s a Sailor’s life for me!”

We have our trip to Morecambe on the 16th June.

We are using the texts, “At the Beach” by Roland Harvey and “Danny McGee drinks the Sea” by Andy Stanton alongside learning a poem off by heart.

In English, the children will learn to make predictions about the different texts giving reasons. They will read all texts and answer basic retrieval questions and inferential questions, writing explanations which supports their answers. We will continue to practice using all punctuation correctly, capital letters, question marks and exclamation marks within our writing. The children will learn how to write in a different genre-poetry and a recount.

In Maths the children will learn to tally, recognise coins as well as naming and describing shapes. They will learn to solve problems which involve money and shape. The children will learn to gain independence as they answer these problems.

In theme they will learn about the UK-looking at the counties that make up the UK and their capitals. The children will locate these places on a map and find other significant places in the UK.  We will be creating a fact file about the UK using Word and Power point. In DT, children will research, design and make a product that can be used to cross water. We will finish off making a digital repeat picture

In Science, the children will learn about different materials used in our local environment. The children will learn relevant vocabulary regarding materials and their properties.

Spring 2 Review

We had very busy and fun half term learning about our topic “Once upon a time and long, long ago.  In English the children learnt about a range of traditional tales, we used the book Little Red Riding Hood as our initial focus text.  The children heard the story from Little Red Riding Hood and then the wolfs perspective. They decided which characters story they believed and which character they thought was telling lies. about what really happened in the woods. The children thoroughly enjoyed reading and writing using this genre. They wrote predictions, described characters, sequenced different narratives, learnt and used question and exclamation marks within their writing and then created their own traditional tale with a character they had created themselves.

In Maths the children learnt about fractions. They learnt how to practically find one half and one quarter of a shape or quantity practically. They were introduced to the fraction sign. They learnt how to solve problems involving quartering and halving and learnt to write explanations which justified and explained whether problems which true or false. The children learnt to measure in time, reading the o`clock signs. We will continue to learn to read half past the hour and learn how to solve problems next term.

The children enjoyed visiting Cliffe Castle to look at objects from the past. The children learnt how to spot old and new artefacts and to explain what they were used for. In Science, the children learnt about the different senses within their body and why each sense was important how the body uses them. In RE, the children learnt about different faiths concentrating on Islam and Christianity and the similarities and differences between each religion.

Spring 2 Thematic Planning - Once upon a time and long, long ago

Spring 1 Review

What a busy half term we have had! We have seen all the children making wonderful progress in all areas of the curriculum.

In English, the children are becoming much more familiar with recognising and using different types of words to enhance their writing. They are becoming much more confident at using adjectives, conjunctions and questions independently and have learnt how to write sentences in chronological order to enable them to write stories and letters in sequence. In phonics, the children are working in differentiated groups across the key stage. It has been lovely to see the progress they are making in both in their reading, writing and spelling as most children are using and applying their phonic knowledge to their work

In Maths the children have learnt how to multiply and divide using concrete objects and pictorial representations. They have all been introduced to the related signs and many children are confident in their own skills to try to solve different mathematical problems justifying and explaining their answers. Some children now know their two times tables off by heart and when asked can answer quick fire questions.

We have had lots of fun designing and creating South Pole penguins in DT and designing and creating sandwiches for us to take to The South Pole if we were to visit. The children really enjoyed making and tasting the sandwiches. We really did have some imaginative combinations of flavours that the children wanted to try.
