In terms of completing work, it is best to complete it on the day that it is scheduled or taught. We also give the children opportunities to complete as much work as possible online.  

In terms of behaviour and expectations, please ensure showing good listening through their body language and show respect whilst others are speaking. Do not eat or drink during the lesson.

English

In English we are looking at The Robot and the Bluebird by David Lucas. This heartwarming story is about a Robot who ends up on the scrapheap because of a broken heart. However, he meets a bluebird who is willing to be his friend. 

The children will write a non-chronological report, persuasive text and writing in role.

Maths

This term, we are consolidating children’s knowledge on number making sure they build on place value, addition and subtraction! Also, we will be solving word problems!

Science

In Science, we will be looking at Habitats. This topic covers what different environments animals live in and why they are suited to that environment. The children will look at their local area and take photos of what they have done.

 

Art and DT

This term in Art, the children will learn about tsculpting different materials and moulding different clay into different shapes. We are hoping to create an outstanding piece of artwork using soaps and clay.

In DT, we will be creating different fruit snacks as weekly projects. Eventually, you will get to create your final fruit snack. 

 

 

History

In History, the children will be looking at important figures in history. They will be looking at how Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole have made a difference to society.
