Spring 1

Spring 1 is here and it brings you a new theme which is ‘The Great Outdoors’. This half term we will be incorporating Geography, Art and DT into our learning with a key focus on mountainous, habitats and rivers. 

In English, we will be focusing on ‘The mountaineer who overcame an avalanche’ (Alaska, 1992) which is a non-fiction story. We will use this text to develop our reading and grammar skills focusing on skills such as: using parenthesis, active/passive voice and adverbials. Our aim is to create our own narrative based on the story of Colby Coombs which we think the children will really enjoy! 

In Maths, we will be learning about multiplication and division in different contexts, including long multiplication for 2-digit numbers. We will be recognising square and cube numbers, prime numbers, factors and multiples and using these in different ways. 

In Science, we will be learning about different types of forces and their impact. This will include: gravity, water resistance, air resistance, friction and how levers, pulleys and gears allow a smaller force to have a greater effect. The children will be carrying out a number of investigation to test out their hypothesis in relation to forces.

Autumn 2

It has been lovely to welcome back the children and see their smiling faces. The children have returned to school with an incredible desire to learn and we have been blown away by their enthusiasm.

This half term our theme is ‘To infinity and Beyond’. This has been based on a book called ‘The Way Back Home’, where the children will make predictions, draw inferences and write a summary of the main events. This will prepare the children to write a letter imagining they are stranded in space.

We will be incorporating a number of foundation subjects (History, Science and Art) into this, where we will be talking about the main events from History such as ‘The Moon Landing’. Also, we will be able to understand the movement of the Earth and the Moon (Science).

In Maths, we will be learning about place value and number to investigate number up to 1 million in relation to the value of each digit, comparing and ordering numbers in ascending and descending order. Moving on to the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) in various contexts, including the introduction of long division, where they will learn and understand the various processes of each of these operations and how to check they have made the right selection.
