Spring Term 2

Spring Term 2

Out of this world!

In Literacy, we be immersing ourselves in a range of Science Fiction stories.

We will be reading, discussing  and sharing lots of short Science Fiction Stories . We will also be learning about Poetry, how to read and recite poetry using expression. Towards the end of the term, we will be using everything we have learned this half term about science fictions to write our own amazing science fiction stories and a persuasive science fiction text!

In Maths, we will be following the Maths No Problem scheme. We will be comparing and ordering decimal numbers. We will be learning to round decimals with 1 decimal place to the nearest whole number and recognising and write decimal equivalents of tenths and hundredths. We will learn to recognise and write decimal equivalents for ¼, ½ and ¾,  count up and down in fractional steps, count up and down in hundredths and find the effect of dividing 1 and 2 digit numbers by 10 and 100. Next, we will learn to compare quantities and find quantities of a number.

Then, we will move on to learn about coordinates. We will compare and classify geometric shapes, complete simple symmetrical figures with a line of symmetry and learn how to  plot specific points to complete a  polygon. Finally, we will learn about acute and obtuse angles and symmetry in 2D shapes.

In Science, we will be studying  Earth and Space . Throughout this unit, we will be explaining the process of how night and day occurs, the movement of the moon and earth relative to the sun and exploring the planets in our solar system. We will learn and understand technical language such as orbit, planetary and solar.

Furthermore, we will describe and explain the movement of the Earth and other planets relative to the sun in a Non-chronological report.

As well as our science topic, we will also be completing 2 CREST awards as part of Science week.

We will be completing Fantastic Finger pints and Camouflaged Creatures.

In R.E, we will learn about the Christian beliefs about miracles as ‘signs’ of the divinity of Jesus. We will learn about a selection of miracle stories and explain what these might reveal to Christians about the nature of Jesus. We will learn about why some Christians might go on pilgrimage to places associated with miraculous events and the impact that belief in miracles and the power of prayer might have on a Christian.

Next, we will learn about the difference between fact, opinion and belief and consider differing interpretations of the word miracle – i.e. an amazing event, a very lucky experience, a strange coincidence, an act of God. We will discuss our own beliefs and if there anything that we accept as truth which others may not agree with. We will reflect on how we make decisions about what is/is not true.

P.E

OAA

In OAA, we will demonstrate how to set and orientate a map when moving round simple courses. We will plan efficient routes and navigate to control markers during scoring events. We will also experience a simple course using all eight compass points. We will share ideas, encourage others, work in team situations and recognise our successes and ways we can improve.

In PSHCE, we will be learning how to prevent ourselves from bacteria and ill-health and the importance of self-hygiene. We will also learn how medicines should be used responsibly and how diseases can be prevented through vaccinations and immunisations. Furthermore we will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the sun on our bodies.
