RESPECT and Behaviour
During this half term the children will be learning about the word POSITIVITY and what this means to them. They will be thinking about how they can show positivity in different situations. Each week the teachers will nominate one child that they have noticed being positive. These children will be known as our ‘Learning Heroes’. They will receive a special certificate in assembly and will have their picture displayed on the wall.
This half term, our literacy will be focused on The Great Fire of London. Will will be reading a range of non-fiction and fiction texts, including extracts from the diary of Samuel Pepys.
As more children progress from Read Write Inc. onto Accelerated Reader, they will continue to access a wide range of amazing non-fiction and fiction texts located in our Accelerated Reader library, as well as have access to a wealth of books relating to our curriculm areas.
Within maths this term we will be looking at multiplication and division, using a range of manipulatives and pictorial representations to support our learning. Within each lesson we continue to practice our counting and keeping up our fluency with our mastering number sessions and number sense. During the week, the children will have access to NumBots in order to continue building their fluency. This app can also be accessed at home. Please speak to your child's class teacher if you require a log in.
This half term, we are looking at habitats. We will investigate a variety of different habitats, recognising why certain living things live in these environments. We are considering the different climate and conditions of the different habitats and where they are found around the world. We are learning to name a range of contrasting habitats, such as a desert and exploring different microhabitats such as leaf litter.
In Spring, we will be exploring The Great Fire of London. We will be working towards exploring our key enquiry question: What caused the Great Fire of London to be so bad, and what was the impact it had on people’s lives? Firstly, we will investigate how we can learn about the past, exploring a range of visual, physical and written sources that allow us to learn about what happened. From this, we will create a timeline of the historic event and begin to reason about why the fire was so devastating.
During Spring term, children will be learning about the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world. We will use a range of globes, atlases and maps to discover their position in the world, as well as where they are in relation to the Northern and Southern Hemisphere and Equator. Children will have the opportunity to research a continent and present their findings to the class as part of an oracy showcase.
This term we will be taking inspiration from the artwork of Sir Peter Blake, inpartcicular his dazzle pattern which can be seen on our local Dazzle Ship Ferry.
During DT this term we are looking at joining techniques. Children are looking at a range of textiles and will be choosing to make an item using appropariate skills and joining techniques we will be practising in class.
PSHE and RSE
This term in PSHE, the children will be taking part in lessons about e-safety, personal development and personal finance. In e-safety, the children will focus keeping safe online and who they can go to if they see something that makes them feel uncomfortable. We will continue to have exciting visitors in for our career assemblies, which have been a big success so far this year.
During this half term, children will be exploring data handling. They will gather their own data and discover how this can be represented using pictograms.
