Summer Term

This term we will continue exploring 'The Great Fire of London' in our Topic lessons. We will recap our work/knowledge of the UK and its capital city of London then extend this to explore our country further. Identifying the seas, rivers and various landmarks and landscapes that make our country famous. We will compare and contrast climate, landscape, animals, plants and living conditions in various parts of the country.  In our art/dt lessons we will explore the work of various Stuart Period artists through watercolours, pastels, sketching and sculpture.

In Literacy we will continue exploring our Read Write Inc scheme and apply this to a variety of writing tasks completed across our curriculum subjects. Tasks such as story writing, report writing, recount writing, information texts and poetry.

In Maths we are continuing our exploration of our number system - developing our problem solving and reasoning through ' Singapore Maths'. We will extend our use of the numberline and various other ways of recording 'our working' to help us with our + and - . Linking these building skills to multiplication, division, money, time and measures.

In Science we will be exploring our topic of Animals/ Habitats and Plants where we will learn about plantlife found in our country . During this term we will link this to life in the past during 1666 in London and explore similarities and differences from then and now... Discussing how the animals/habitats and plant life may of changed.


Our PE lessons are on a Wednesday so please make sure you have your kit in.

As the weather can still be cool at this time of year I would still aim to keep a pair of track suit pants or leggins in your bag for those outdoor lessons just incase it's a little chilly
