Mrs Jones Mrs Cheetham
Jellyfish are having a great time working hard, following the Golden Rules and having lots of fun so far this year and we have lots of exciting activities and lessons planned for this next term.
Our topic question for the Summer Term is:
Where Does Our Food Come From?
During our geography lessons, we will be looking at the where our food comes from to help us understand that food can be grown and produced both locally and further afield.
Our lessons will teach us about where milk comes from, how chocolate is made and where in the world certain foods come from.
Art and DT
In art, we are creating a self portrait in the style of Guiseppe Archiboldo, using fruits and vegetables as our facial features.
During DT, we will be looking at what makes a healthy picnic and creating our own fruit salad.
Our computing work will as always involve work around e-safety and knowing how to stay safe online. Our main focus as well as Online safety will be the Purple Mash Coding programs. We will be developing our computing skills and creating our own character this term too.
In English we will be looking at fiction texts and poetry. We will be retelling and writing our own stories. The text we will be sharing is: The Tiger Who Came To Tea. We will also be creating our own food poem about jelly. Along with writing these texts we will also be building on our understanding of sentence structure using Rainbow Grammar.
In Reading we will be focusing on developing our reading skills and linking this with answering questions about a text, we will be looking at a range of fiction and non fiction texts.
During maths we will be focusing on multiplication and division, fractions and geometry in the first half term. We will then develop our understanding of place value within 100 and we will be learning about measurements including money, time and volume.
In Science we will be learning about two different topics in the Summer Term. The first topic is called Plant Detectives and we will be exploring our school environment to see which plants grown during the summer season . In the second half term our topic will be Our Changing World, we will be learning about how the seasons change.
Our circle time work will center around discussing the ways that we show people we are caring and what our responsibilities are. During this we will also discuss anti-bullying strategies and ways to promote equality and inclusion.
In our PE lessons we will be focusing on football skills, games and dance. For these exciting activities, we are lucky to receive outside coaching.
We will be learning about two religions during the summer term, these are Christianity and Judaism. In addition to learning about these faiths we will be looking at Synagogues and Churches and items that are found within these buildings.
