This term in Geography, we will be learning all about contrasting localities. We will be identifying the geographical features of each, looking at similarities and differences between our two chosen places and considering how life for the locals may differ in each.
In English, we will be consolidating our sentence work and exploring how to write in paragraphs. In addition, we will be learning about using subordinating and coordinating conjunctions, as well as using commas to separate items in a list.
Maths will focus on multiplication and division. However, we will continue to recap key concepts, such as number bonds to 10 and 20 and understanding tens and ones. Multiplication facts will be tested weekly, with many children moving beyond 2s, 5s and 10s.
In Design and Technology, we will be designing, making and evaluating felt purses. Children will be given the opportunity to experiment with a running stitch and give thought to the purpose and consumer for their design.
French lessons will explore weather and the seasons. Children learn how to read and write the names for each season and begin to experiment with some of the vocabulary associated with them.
PSHE lessons will focus on keeping ourselves safe. Children will have the opportunity to explore various ways in which they can stay safe, including physically, mentally and online.
For RE, we will be exploring the question ‘Who is Muslim and what do they believe?’ We will look at Muslim beliefs and traditions, identifying similarities and differences to other religions we have studied.
In Computing, children will be using the 2Sequence software on Purple Mash to make music. They will begin by altering a tune, before composing their own.
Ball skills and Team Building will be the core focus of our PE lessons this term. In both sets of lessons, children will learn new skills that can be transferred to many sports.
For reading, please continue to encourage your child to read at home for at least 10 minutes per day. To help them engage with the text, we ask that you ask them questions about what they are thinking about the meaning. If you do not have your Bug Club login details, please contact your child’s class teacher. Please also continue to use TT Rock Stars for practising times tables.
