TERM 5 and TERM 6

Welcome back to the last two terms of the year!

This term we are starting a new topic called ‘Deep Down Under’ where we are going to be learning about explorers around the world and why they were significant.  The children were very engaged with our hook day where we looked at different items that an explorer might have and why they would have them.  The children were so eager to learn more and were able to make fantastic links to previous learning.

We are going to look at explorers in more details during History, thinking about why they are important, where they explored and what they wore.

In Science, we are going to focus on plants and have the opportunity to identify and compare a range of wild and garden plants.  We will also start to grow our own plants thinking about why it is important for them to be healthy.  Later in the term, the children will also be thinking about seasonal changes with specific focus on weather.

Our text for this term is The Snail and the Whale, which the children will love!  We are going to be writing our own narratives based around the snail and the whale using a text map.

In Maths, we will be looking at multiplication and division and, towards the end of the term, begin to work on fractions.

In Art, we will be looking at modelling and creating own models based around this topic.

PE will continue on a Thursday with Mr. Heath.

Home learning will be handed out on a Friday ready to be returned on the following Wednesday.
