Spring Term 2

In Literacy, we will be learning about classical poetry. The children will learn to recite the poem The Owl and the Pussycat and Please Mrs Butler. We will be discussing the similarities and differences between the poems using different sentence openers to develop our language. These will include 'They are similar because they both have...' 'They are different because this has... but this has...'

Ask your child to tell you the poem and show you the actions.

 

We will also be writing explanations of basic food chains linked to our work in Science.

In Maths, we will be learning about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We will also be investigating making patterns, sorting and turning shapes.

Words we will use include sides, vertices, lines of symmetry, faces, edges, quarter and half-turn, clockwise and anticlockwise. Ask your child if they can see shapes within objects around the home.

 

During this half term we will also be making, counting, finding and comparing fractions.

 

In Science, we will be finding out how animals obtain their food from plants and other animals. We will look at simple food chains and identify and name different sources of food.

Look out for pictures from our visit from Lancashire Hawks and Owls.

 

In Geography, we will continue our learning about the seven continents and five oceans of the world. We will use world maps, atlases and globes to identify the Equator, North Pole and South Pole and our vocabulary will include North, South, East and West. This will give us the opportunity to apply our mathematical knowledge about different fractions and turns.

In Computing, we will understand that require precise instructions. We will predict what the outcome of a simple program will be and test it to see if our predictions are correct.

In R.E., we will be answering the questions 'How do we respond to the things that really matter?' and 'How and why is celebrating important in religion and worship?' We will look at a range of Christian symbols and discuss why people might sometimes want to use symbols instead of words.

 

As a Rights Respecting School, we will consider Article 14: Every child has the right to think and believe what they choose.

 

In PSHCE, we will be learning about the importance of money,beginning to understand amounts in real terms and that it needs to be managed, preparing us to be responsible citizens in the 21st Century.

In P.E., we will develop the skill of underarm throwing and catching. We will apply skills we have learned before to be more accurate. We will also know the ready position and how to hold a bat in order to strike a ball.
