TERM 1 and TERM 2

Welcome back to the new school year! It was fabulous to see all the children again after the summer break and listen to all the wonderful things they did while we were off.

In Orca Class this term, our topic is called Whizz Pop Bang! We had great fun making bread as part of our Hook Day, but we are still waiting to find our why and how this links to our topic! A mystery guest visited us and left us some clues as to who they might be. We know they are from the olden days but apart from that it is a real mystery!

As part of our Topic learning, we will be exploring what life was like in the past, in particular life in London. We will be learning about some significant events that happened back then and how they changed London forever!

As part of our Writing this term, we be writing some instructions explaining how we made our bread, a narrative and finally a diary entry. We are really looking forward to sharing all our wonderful ideas with each other.

In Art, we are going to be exploring the artist Jackson Pollock - so far we have discussed what we like and dislike about his paintings but we are looking forward to using his technique to create our own paintings in his style at the end of the term.

Maths this term will be all about number and place value and exploring numbers up to 100 - the children will delving deeper into number and exploring the value of digits and finding different ways of making a given number. As the term progresses, we will use our place value knowledge to help us solve addition and subtraction calculations.

In Science, we will be investigating Animals, including humans. We cannot wait to get started!
