Spring Term 1

During Spring - Term 1, our theme will be ‘Amazing Animals’. We have a very exciting trip to Chester Zoo planned, early in the new term! Your children will be bringing letters home soon!

 

 English

In English, we will be revising the features and layout of non-chronological reports. We will write our own reports about different exotic animals, including those found in the world’s rainforests. We will spend the second half of the term looking at poems with figurative language and reading and analysing fables.

   

 

  

 

  

 

  

 

 

Maths

This half term, we will be revising mathematical concepts including; number and place value, calculation, measurement, fractions and decimals, statistics and geometry.

 

Science

Our science, this half term, will involve living things and their habitats. We will examine the life cycle of different animals; insects, mammals, amphibians and birds. We will look at the differences between these.

 

Geography

In geography, we will continue our study of South America. We will use fieldwork to observe, measure and record information and compare these to a typical village in the United Kingdom.

 

Engineering

We have an exciting project for engineering for this half term. Keep looking for more information to follow.

As part of our learning in Science, we visited Chester Zoo to learn about animals and their habitats.

We all had a great time and loved seeing the different animals in their habitats. Here are some of the comments from the children below:
I enjoyed seeing the Jaguars. Varisha
I liked watching the Orangutans. Ihtisham
I like being scared of the bats as they flew around my head in an uncontrollable fashion. Tahmid
I liked the lions. Tasfiya
I liked the tigers. Luqman
I liked spotting the stick insects because they were camouflage. Malaika
I liked seeing the green snake because it kept slithering around its natural habitat. Zainab
I liked learning about the different animals. The largest snake at Chester Zoo is 6.5m Danyaal
