We will be reading a variety of classical poems including Please Mrs Butler and The Owl and the Pussycat. We will learn them off by heart and using different techniques to perform them to others.
We will be learning to tell the time to the nearest five minutes. We will also be finding the durations of time using analogue clocks. You can help your child to learn by asking them questions like, 'It is 3 o'clock now, what time will it be in 1 hour?'
We will also be learning to measure and compare volumes of liquid using different containers. Please encourage your child to look at volumes of household objects like drinks, shampoo and washing up liquid.
We will be using our observations and simple equipment to identify things that are living, dead and never been alive. We will also be explaining the basic stages of a lifecycle of animals including humans.
We will test and amend a set of instructions then write out own algorithms before testing them to see if they work.
We will use a range of sources to answer questions and explain how and why people acted like they did in the past.
We will be answering questions including 'How do we respond to things that matter?' and 'Why do Muslims believe it is important to obey God?'
We will investigate the importance of prayer (salah) in Islam and various rituals which are all ways of showing obedience to God.
We will further develop the skills we learned earlier in the year when we cut fabrics using templates before joining and decorating them.
We will continue to practice on the Indian Dhol Drums, applying skills we learned earlier in the year and playing with more precision.
We will learn to recognise risk in everyday situations and what actions can be taken to minimise harm. We will learn how rules and restrictions help to keep us safe.
We will be developing the skill of throwing overarm for distance, striking a ball, fielding a ball and then applying these skills in a simple game.
