Our topic this term is Seasonal Changes and Weather. We will be looking at all different aspects of the weather including recording temperature, rainfall and wind direction.
Literacy: As always our priority will be ensuring that children can read and do so fluently and with expression. Using phonics (Read Write Inc) we will develop our word recognition and fluency in both spelling and reading. Our emphasis in writing will still be on forming sentences and developing our knowledge of punctuation including question marks and exclamation marks.
Numeracy: We shall continue to develop our mathematical knowledge of addition and subtraction, whilst looking at how they relate to division and multiplication. We will also be measuring and understanding capacity, revisiting 2D and 3D shapes and getting to grips with halves and quarters.
Science: Children will be exploring different weather instruments and how they work. This links nicely with our topic Seasonal Changes. We will be weather watching on a daily basis to create data to produce a bar chart.
Art and DT: We will be creating the seasons using different mediums such as; pastels, paint and collage techniques.
R.E: We will continue to look at Christianity at Easter with the theme being ‘Salvation’.
History/Geography: We will be looking at different climates around the world and extreme weather.
Computing: We will start to understand what data is and how we can use our weather findings to create a bar chart and pictograms.
PSHE: We will be discussing ‘Relationships’ and what we mean by this.
