Summer Term 2

Healthy Lives  


Our Summer 2 topic is ‘Healthy Lives'


Throughout this term, we will be looking how we can live a healthy life. We will be linking lots of our learning across the term to our final Engineering project, to create a special healthy muffin

We are investigating the nutritional value within foods, understanding which foods are healthy and which are unhealthy.



We will learn about healthy eating and a balanced diet. We are looking forward to following recipes and cooking different foods this half term. We will be develop our sensory vocabulary by smelling, tasting and feeling a selection of healthy foods which we will then  design and create our own healthy muffin. 

In Literacy, we are reading the adventure story

‘The Boy who could fly.’


‘I wonder what type of foods Thomas eats to keep himself healthy?’


We will be visualizing and imagining the adventures of Thomas and developing our vocabulary by investigating unfamiliar words, such as ‘lopsided’.


To enhance their speaking and writing they will use talk for writing frames such as:

First… because

Next… however….

Then … therefore…

Finally/Eventually… because….

In week 4 the children will start to look at our non-fiction topic this term which is writing discussion texts. We will be linking this to our current science learning about healthy living. The children will get the opportunity to write a discussion text of their own balancing the arguments for and against. The children will develop their knowledge of arguments and viewpoints using speaking frames like:


An argument for is .. because…

An argument against is… because..

I understand however…

I understand but…

I accept your decision however I feel ….. because

I accept your decision however I believe …. because



In Summer 2 we will be using and applying basic number work and calculations involving: addition, subtraction and division and multiplication.


We shall be measuring length, volume and weight of many materials.


Our measuring knowledge will be used to help us weigh and measure the ingredients needed to make our healthy muffins.
