In Art we will be painting in the style of L.S Lowry as well as sketching landmark buildings in Manchester.
This half term we will be locating Manchester on a map. We will be using Google Earth to find where we live as well as identifying some of the main attractions in Manchester.
In Science, we will be learning about the life cycle of a plant, comparing different plants and understanding that different plants have different needs as well as making observational drawings of plants.

This half term the children will be revisiting some of the songs we have learnt during the past year and adding musical accompaniment to them.
This term our unit is “We are Celebrating”. The children will be creating a digital greeting card. They will learn how to manipulate and organize text as well as how to store and retrieve their files from the network.
The children will learn to recognise and name some symbols of belonging from their own experience, from Christianity and at least one other religion. They will think about what these might mean and why they matter to believers.
In Math's we will be learning how to find totals of amounts and how to find change from a given coin, such as 20p. As well as this we will be developing our addition and subtraction skills.
This website has many games to support learning at home -
The children will also be practicing to count accurately up to 100, being fluent with number bonds to 10 and 20 and their number formation. It will be very much appreciated, if at home practice takes place to ensure numbers are formed correctly.
Remember to login to Mathletics to continue to improve your maths skills. If you can't remember your log in please ask your teacher.
The children will all continue to access Read, Write Inc on a daily basis. During these sessions children have a range of experiences that allow them to interact with many different books and genres.
