Assalamu’alaikum and welcome back to the Summer term and see below for all the exciting things we’ll be getting up to…!
What we are learning this Year/Term
The book Gregory Cool is about a boy who visits his family in Tobago. The children will be writing diary entries in role, writing a letter home and producing persuasive holiday brochures.
We will be completing our unit on fractions particularly focusing on finding fractions of a number and solving fraction problems. Children will then learn to identify parallel, perpendicular, horizontal and vertical lines. We will study how to identify, describe and draw / make 2D and 3D shapes. We will then focus on how to calculate and measure the perimeter of 2D shapes.
Our Science topic this half term is parts of a plant. Children will learn about the functions of each part of a plant. They will take part in some investigations including celery roots and dissecting flowers.
We are focusing on the human and physical features of Mountains in Europe. We will discover the seven summits and learn about life in mountainous areas. Children will describe the features of mountains and learn about why the seven summits are so special.
We will recap our purple mash unit on coding and then use the programme scratch to decode and create our own programmes.
PE sessions will continue to be on a Tuesday afternoon with the coaches, where children will focus on invasion games and teamwork games as we are approaching sports day.
This half term we will focus on relationships and managing our feelings and emotions as we prepare ourselves for Year 4.
We will be investigating paper mechanisms and how they are used in books. Children will interview a Year 1 child and then plan, make and share a pop up book with their younger peer including paper mechanisms they have learnt.
