Autumn Term 2 Learning 2017-18
In the second half of the Autumn term our focus will be on WW1 and Remembrance. Next year is a huge anniversary for the end of the First World War and the children will be learning all about it in their Topic and Guided Reading sessions. Our Literacy focus will be on letters and poetry, again linking to our topic, these letters will be informal letters from soldiers fighting on the front line and war poetry written by Harvington.
In maths we will be looking at multiplication and division as well as starting work on fractions. Big Maths will include lots of multiplication practice but there is still the ability to do this at home too.
In RE we will be looking at Reconciliation and how important it is to say sorry and forgive people.
Our Science this half term is on Animals Including Humans. This involves looking at different types of food, what we need to be healthy, different types of skeleton and naming the bones in our bodies.
Autumn Term 1 Learning 2017-18
In the first half of the Autumn term our focus will be Ancient Egypt. We will be looking at Egypt and how we learn about ancient civilisations through the artefacts that we find. Our Literacy focus will involve looking at 'The Egyptian Cinderella' and comparing this with the more modern traditional story that we all know. During Literacy, we will also be making persuasive leaflets to convince people to visit our class Egyptian Museum.
In maths we will start by looking at number and place value and then moving onto addition and subtraction. There will be a lot of practice of mental and written methods of calculations and any extra practice at home will be all worth it.
In RE we will be exploring what it is like to belong to the family of God and the other groups that we belong to. We will be working on understanding what sin is and the consequences of our actions.
In Science we will be investigating 'Forces and Magnets' including the strength of magnets and understanding what actions involve push and/or pull forces.
