Summer Term 1

Our learning this term in English will be based on the historical figure of Boudicca.

We will be using our knowledge of the Iron Age Celts from last term to write a narrative based on part of Boudicca's life. We will be building vocabulary skills and we will have lots of opportunities to explore the language and use it in short bursts of writing.

This term in science we will be learning about Forces and Magnets.

We will explore and describe how objects move on different surfaces.

 

Also we plan to explore and explain how objects attract and repel, in relation to objects and other magnets.

We will compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet and identify some magnetic materials.

Maths

 

In Maths, we will be learning how to read, understand and represent data in tally charts and bar charts.  We will look at a variety of different scales and become super confident in answering questions by looking at the information in the charts.

 

  

 

 

We will also be learning about fractions.  We will be counting in tenths, adding fractions and learning about equivalent fractions.  We shall use the bar model to help us become confident with fractions.  If we know the times tables   (year 2 -x2 x5 x10      year 3 - x3 x4 x8)  then fractions is a lot easier.
