Spring Term

Happy New Year! We hope you had a lovely Christmas break.

We have been busy already this term introducing our new topics.

Maths

In Maths this term we will be looking at decimals, fractions, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction, measures and data. We have already made a good start on learning about decimals and fractions and will be continuing to work hard to deepen our understanding of these.

English

In English we are looking at argument and debate, persuasive writing, drama, chronological reports, nonsense poems and diary writing. We have already started to look at the books of Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney and create diary entries for our own ‘Diary of a…’ books.

History

Our topic for this term is The Vikings. We are going to be looking at different aspects of Viking life including jobs, housing and the Gods. We are very lucky to be having a Viking day in our classroom in February where we will learn more about what it was like to be a Viking and how they lived.

Science

In Science we are going to be looking at Sound and Electricity. We will be splitting this into two separate learning journeys. Sound will be the focus during the first half term and then electricity for the second half term. We are going to be taking part in lots of different experiments based around sound, making predictions and evaluating as we go along.

Geography

Geography this term is all about Chembakolli: A Village in India. During this topic we will be finding out where India is using an atlas and discussing how we would travel there from the UK. We will be looking at and comparing the way of life in India to that of the UK. We are also going to have the opportunity to explore the food that is eaten in India and how this is prepared.

Art

In Art we are going to be creating a variety of different pieces which focus on our History topic of the Vikings. We will be looking at different artefacts, Viking longships and also making our own Viking maps.

RE

Our focus for RE this term will be Jesus, the Teacher and Jesus, the Saviour. We will also be looking at Lent. We will continue to follow The Way, The Truth and The Life for this subject.

PE

PE will continue on a Tuesday afternoon with Terri. Please make sure that your child has the correct PE kit including pumps in school.

Music

Music will continue on a Friday afternoon with Mr Conway. Please make sure that your child brings their instrument into school on a Friday.
