What’s happening this half term?
Our books for Summer 1 are from fantasy settings including: “Supertato” and “The Bog Baby”. During Summer 2, we will look at Traditional Tales including “Jack and the Beanstalk”.
We will be exploring capital letters, full stops, questions and exclamation marks through these texts. We will be looking at how to use prepositions in our writing and recognising rhyme and repetition in stories. We will also be focusing on using suffixes and prefixes in our writing.
For Mathematics in the Summer term we are focusing on:
- Place value within 100
- Multiplication and division
- Fractions (halves and quarters)
- Time (o’clock and half past the hour)
Our Science unit for the Summer term is “Which birds and plants would Little Red Riding Hood find in our local park?” Through this unit, we will be visiting Reddish Vale Country Park. We will be learning about plant structures, how to identify plants, the different types of trees and animal groupings.
Our learning challenge for Summer 1 is “Where do different animals live?” Through this topic, we will be studying continents and oceans. Our learning challenge for Summer 2 is “Who are our local heroes?” Through this topic, we will be studying L.S. Lowry and the significance of the Manchester Bee.
This afternoon, the children have been making traffic light sandwiches. They then wrote instructions for how to make their sandwiches.
In Maths, the children are learning about multiplication and division this half term. This week, we have been learning about making equal groups and how to count in multiples of 2s, 5s and 10s.
