Summer 1 2022

Our topic focus in Geography is ‘Why is March not the capital of the UK?’ We will be learning about the different countries in the United Kingdom and discussing the contract between our local area and the capital city. This will link to our English as we will be looking at the story ‘Katie in London’ and writing our own versions of the story. In Science we will be exploring the question: ’How are living things affected by the seasons?’ where we will be looking at the impact the seasons have on different animals, and how the day length varies in different seasons. In Maths this term, we will be working on numbers 0 to 20, numbers 0 to 50 and money.

Reminder: This half term indoor PE will be on a Tuesday and outdoor PE will be on a Thursday.

Spring 2 2022 Update

In English this half term, we are reading the story ‘Daisy Saves The Day’ by Shirley Hughes where we will be discovering more about what the Victorian Era was like for children. We will be writing two diary entries. One of these entries will be as ourselves, the other in the role of a Victorian child.

This links with our History focus on the Victorian Era where we will be exploring the question ‘how have children’s lives changed since the Victorian times?’ We will be learning about children’s experiences of  our children and families. school, work and home during the Victorian period and comparing it to our lives now.

In Maths, we will be working on additive structures including aggregation, augmentation, partitioning and reduction. We will then move on to addition and subtraction facts within 10.

Our Science focus for this half term is on plants and we will be investigating the question ‘what is a plant?’ This will involve being able to identify and name a variety of common wild and garden plants, including deciduous and evergreen trees. We will also be learning about the basic structure of a range of common flowering plants, including trees.

Indoor PE takes place on a Monday where we will be doing gymnastics. On Thursday, we are outside in PE where we will be doing tag rugby.

We are continuing to teach daily phonics sessions and are currently revisiting all phase 5 sounds. Please can we ask that you continue to read with your child daily and complete the home learning tasks each week. Thank you!
