THIS TERM'S TOPICS:

In Literacy we will be looking at adjectives and how we can use these to make our writing interesting. We will continue to work on punctuating sentences and developing our handwriting. Our genres for this half term will be ‘Stories by Julia Donaldson’ and ‘ Information texts’. Through these topics we will develop our understanding of characters, story writing and the structure of information texts.

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. By half term children will feel more confident completing column subtraction with the introduction of borrowing and will be revisiting previously taught methods to ensure a sound understanding.

As Scientists we will be studying Push and Pulls. We will learn about different types of movements and forces and will carry out experiments to test the effects of gravity and friction.

As Historians we will be studying Ancient Egypt. The unit will begin by learning about where Egypt is and facts about daily life in ancient Egyptian times. Moving will then move onto studying mummification which is always popular with children. Children will then explore the pyramids and hieroglyphics in addition to gods and goddesses.

As Creative Technicians we will be studying Moving Vehicles. Children will be able to identify a variety of vehicles and understand that vehicles transport humans and objects. Before designing their own vehicle, children will learn about wheels and axels. By the end of the topic the children will have created their own vehicles using boxes, wheels and dowels. We will then test the speed and distance that these vehicles can travel during our Science lesson.

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

As Linguists we will study the topic ‘El Mercado – Food & Shopping.
