In English we are reading non-fictional texts. Finding out information about wild animals and writing our own informative texts. We will also be creating our own news reports. Within the English covered we will continue with grammar sessions on: nouns, verbs, different types of sentences and coordinating sentences. Your child has a writing target-ask them if they know what it is for this half term. In Maths we are continuing with addition and subtraction and then working with money. We will also be continuing work on multiplication and division of 10s, 5s and 2s. In Science we are learning about the properties of materials and forces linked to our topic on Space. In RE we are learning about ‘Incarnation’ and the importance of Jesus to Christians Our Topic this half term is ‘Moon and Zoom’ The countdown has begun. Are you ready for blast off? This half term, we’ll travel through space to learn about the Solar System. We’ll investigate an alien crash site, write an incident report and try to find the aliens who have landed. Where could they be? We’ll make models of the Solar System and design spaceships, space buggies and space-related toys. Books and photographs will help us to learn about the first lunar landing and the astronauts who venture into space. Floor robots will be programmed to move around an alien landscape, and we will compose space sounds and dances. We’ll also explore satellite images, investigate rockets and use ICT to communicate our ideas and present our work. At the end of our project, we’ll share our learning in a variety of different ways. We’ll read our exciting science-fiction stories aloud, sing space-themed songs and create an exhibition of our space models. It will be out of this world!
