Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Children will need to have an indoor and outdoor PE kit in school for these days.
Our Summer 1 topic is Explorers and Adventurers. In this topic we will be studying explorers from as far back as Christopher Columbus, to modern day explorers such as Tim Peake. We will also be learning the 8 points of a compass/ how to use it, continents/oceans and the hemispheres.
The topics for the rest of the year are:
- Autumn 1: Scavengers and Settlers (The Stone Age)
- Autumn 2: Active Planet
- Spring 1: Ancient Egypt
- Spring 2: Time and Place, Earth and Space
- Summer 1: Explorers and Adventurers
- Summer 2: Blue Planet
In English we will be studying biographies. We will be looking at the features of Neil Armstrong's biography and then having a go at creating Tim Peake's once we have gathered all of the information that we need.
In Maths we will be learning about fractions. We will start by learning what unit and non-unit fractions are. We will then we looking at equivalent fractions. Finally we are going to be adding/subtracting them.
We read with Miss Kershaw/ Mrs Cavanagh 1:1. We also take part in shared reading sessions, where we have chance to look at different text types in more detail, following the VIPERS structure. To develop our love of reading we enjoy choosing books to read for pleasure from our class library. Our favourites include titles by David Walliams, Roald Dahl and Dick King Smith.
