SPOTLIGHT ON...

Form One and their charity work. This term we have been studying the rainforest. As part of our topic we have looked at endangered animals, what it means to be endangered, why animals are endangered and what we can do to help. We decided to do something to support WWF and their important pledge to help endangered animals. Each child raised money by doing jobs around their home. The children were so successful that they raised enough money to sponsor two animals, a giant panda and a sea turtle. This is the 5th year that Form One children have supported WWF and during that time they have raised over £350 for this worthy cause. Well done to all the children involved and a huge thank you to their very supportive families.

 

THIS TERM'S TOPICS:

In Literacy we will be looking at verbs and adverbs. We will be ensuring that our sentences are punctuated correctly and will be extending these to make our writing more exciting. Our genres for this half term will be ‘Information texts’ and ‘Poetry’. Through these topics we will develop our understanding of the features of these genres such as headings, subheadings, verses, lines, rhyme. We will continue to read regularly and will be developing expression and fluency.

In Numeracy we will continue to develop our understanding of multiplication and division. Children will use their understanding of place value to add and subtract two and three digit numbers. This term we will be consolidating previously taught written methods and will be tackling division using the ‘bus shelter’ method.

As Scientists we will be looking at plants. The range of plants in our environment, the parts of a plant and their jobs and what a plant needs to be healthy. We will be having a go at growing different plants and will be making careful observations.

As Geographers we will be delving into the Amazon rainforest. We will be exploring the climate, the plants and animals found here and the current threats to the rainforest and its inhabitants. This is a great topic and we end the topic with a trip to Blackpool Zoo to further explore the animals and plants found in a rainforest.

As Artists we will be looking at the Henri Rousseau’s rainforest work. Exploring colour and patterns. We will use this to create stained glass insects, oil pastel studies and animal prints.

As Athletes we will continue to develop our fine motor skills and sporting skills through different team games.

As Linguists we will continue to develop our understanding of the language and our pronunciation.
