we will be looking at the order of the alphabet and how alphabetical order can be used. We will be aiming to correctly use capital letters and full stops to write complete sentences. The genre of our work will be poetry. We will be analysing text, looking for patterns and studying the structure of poems before writing our own rhyming poems.
In Numeracy we will be focusing on counting in multiples of 2s and 10s and learning the associated division facts. We will be reading and writing numbers to 100 and then beyond in both digits and words. We will be developing our addition and subtraction skills. All of our skills will be developed further by using and applying them to word problems and real life situations.
As Scientists, we will be studying Ourselves. We look at how we have grown and developed since being born. We will identify and name body parts and look at how some of these relate to the five senses. We will be using our senses to explore and will start carrying out scientific experiments.
As Historians we will be studying the Dinosaurs. We will be looking at the different species of dinosaurs and when they were alive. We will make comparisons between ourselves and dinosaurs. We will look at the timeline of the dinosaurs and will research possible reasons for their extinction.
As Creative Technicians we will be working with a variety of materials including clay, paints, pencils and tissue paper to create self portraits. We will use ICT to explore our ideas further and will link our work to our Science topic.
As Linguists we will developing our vocabulary further through interactive resources and role play.
