Summer Term 1

Our topic this term is Owls     

Will will be reading books by the author Jill Tomlinson, including the Owl Who's Afraid of the Dark.

We will also 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.

In Maths, we will be learning to tell the time to 5 minute intervals. We will also be learning to measure volume. Ask your child to identify the volume of different containers around your home by looking at packaging.

In Science, we will learn about different habitats.  We will be finding out how animals obtain their food from plants and animals.  We will search our school grounds to find out which animals live there. We will also link this learning with Art when we use textile. Keep checking this page for photos of our amazing work.

We will link our leaning in Computing with Literacy when we use a range of instructions to test and amend.

Our learning in R.E will focus around the teachings of Islam and we will seek to answer the question: Why do Muslims believe it is important to obey God?

Being Safe is the focus of our learning in PSHCE when we understand how rules and restrictions help to keep us safe.

In Music, we will revisit our learning of playing untuned instruments with Indian drumming.

In P.E we will be developing skills in throwing overarm for distance and striking a ball with increasing accuracy.
