We have been to forest school to collect ideas for our poetry, learned about beat and rhythm in music with Georgina Bridle, considered how our actions affect other people and found out about the capital cities and countries of the United Kingdom. It was wonderful to see Mrs Blackburn on Tuesday and she taught us how to skip around the playground – some of us will need to practise though!
In the mornings we explored how numbers are made up of tens and ones and counted carefully in maths, created lots of ideas for poetry in Literacy and practised our reading. It certainly is time for the weekend.
Here are some pictures of us having fun – look out for more about our learning soon!
'How can we protect Planet Earth?' is our enquiry question for this term.
Our first unit of work will be poetry and we will be generating lots of ideas and writing simple poems about where we live. After this we will be reading 'The Journey Home' by Frann Preston-Gannon.
For Geography we will be looking at our local area in terms of physical and human features and comparing this to an urban area. Thinking about how we can improve and protect Earth will be central to what we learn along with considering our impact. This will start us thinking about how we can do little things to reduce our carbon footprint and help to lessen climate change. Our fieldwork visit will be to a contrasting environment.
Art will focus on textiles and sculpture working towards creating a work that represents Earth.
Our Science will centre around materials and how they can be changed. This will be linked to recycling and our impact on earth. We will also consider animals and how our actions have an impact on their environment.
We will also be learning about algorithms in Computing and Mrs Blackburn will be leading our PE sessions on Tuesdays while Mrs Powdrill will be doing Dance with us on Fridays.
Mostly our Maths will stand outside our topic but, where we can we will make links. To start with we will be thinking about numbers and place value, moving on to look at addition and subtraction later in the term.
We hope you have all had a wonderful summer break and have managed to stay safe and well throughout. We have been busy making sure everything is ready for when we come back to school and we cannot wait to see you all again!
