This term's theme is "To Infinity and Beyond".
Literacy and Phonics
The children will all access a daily RWI phonics/spelling and guided reading session. The children will create a non-chronological report on “Space”. We will be reading “Alien Tea on Planet Zum Zee” and we will be writing instructions to make ‘moon’ rock buns.
We will also continue to develop comprehension, spelling and handwriting skills.
The children will be labelling diagrams and comparing the environmental differences between the moon and the school grounds.
This half term we will be looking at the work of Wassily Kandinsky and using pastel and ink washes to create our own versions of the work “Squares with Concentric Circles”
Design and Technology
The children will be using a variety of materials to design and make their own alien.
In Science we will be learning about Forces. The children will be learning that pushes and pulls are examples of forces. They will also be investigating how to make objects speed up and slow down.
Our indoor P.E. lessons will be dance and outdoors will be invasion games.
This half term the children will be listening and appraising the reggae song “Zootime” They will be singing and playing instruments and learning about pulse, pitch, rhythm and improvisation.
Our computing unit this term is called ‘We are Astronauts’. We will learn to create algorithms using “Scratch”.
In our ‘How and why do we celebrate special and sacred times?’ unit we will learn about Easter and the stories and meanings associated with it.
Our PSHE unit is all about similarities and differences between ourselves and the opposite gender and exploring and challenging stereotypes.
In Maths lessons this term, we will be focusing on telling the time.
This website has many games to support learning at home -
Throughout the year the children will be practising 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.
