In maths this term we will be starting with measurement of heavy and light and also capacity.  We will then focus on numbers and addition and subtraction.

In English we are looking at non-fiction books, what are their features and what can we learn from them. We will be making our own books full of facts about our favourite animals. In summer 2 we will be focusing on poetry and recounting our best events in Yellow 4.

Our Science focus is plants, we will be learning what plants need to grow and we will be growing and caring for your own plants this term. We will also be looking at the seasonal change from spring to summer.

In PE we will be developing our Multi-skills and begin to incorporate all of our learning into fun games to enjoy in the sunshine

In RE we will be learning about the Buddhist religion. We will be talking about knowing right from wrong and having empathy for others.

In Geography our topic is called ‘What is my Country’, we will learn all about the countries of the UK and extend on their previous knowledge of their own locality to the UK in general.  The children will explore the UK by looking at individual countries, capital cities, human and physical features and learn to compare and contrast the countries of the UK.

 

In DT we are exploring and making wind toys. Observing how the wind can move items and how they are put together. We will be learning how to join and mend objects using glue and tape.

 

Every night pupils will read in class and then take their books home to share. Your child may have words, letter sounds or symbols to practise at home. On seesaw we will share ways you can extend learning further at home.
