In writing this term we will continue to use a ‘Talk for Writing’ approach in order to create our own set of instructions, alternate fairy tale, diary and recount. We will be busy exploring description of different characters and plots in order to adapt our own original work. We will use lots of fantastic texts to support our work such as ‘The Man on the Moon’ by Simon Bartum and referring back to the ‘Revolting Rhyme’ which we will study in depth in reading as well.
Mass, capacity and temperature and how we can measure them.
In Science we will continue to investigate different materials and their properties. Before moving on to becoming apprentice gardeners. We will build on our knowledge of plants and how they grow. We will learn how to grow plants from bulbs and from seeds, learning the sequence of germination, and comparing and contrasting the requirements of germinating seeds with those of mature plants to maintain healthy growth.
In reading we will continue to build on our reading skills of predicting, inferring and retrieving information from the text as well as continuing to build our own understanding of key vocabulary in our wider class reading. We will be using the wonderful Roald Dahl’s collection of ‘Revolting Rhymes’ to explore some alternate fairy tales as well as another classic ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’.
In history we are going to be identifying what it means to be a significant person and referring to Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus. We will be exploring their early lives and their later adventures. We will look at why they became famous and why they are still remembered today. We will create fact files and videos demonstrating our knowledge.
In Geography we will develop our knowledge of the 7 continents. We will learn the 5 major oceans. We will be able to name and locate them on a map. We will start to use directional language and use it to discuss locations and routes on a map.
We are going to be exploring the Jewish faith. What Jewish people believe about God, Creation, humanity and the natural world. We will retell the Jewish story of God's creation and the celebration of Shabbat. We will also learn about what it is like to belong to Christian religion in Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire today.
