“All around the world”
As writers we will be writing to entertain others. We will be looking at stories from other
countries including ‘Pattan’s Pumpkin’ where we will be asking ourselves – what will happen
next? We will also be focusing on Biblioburro – the donkey library. We will be doing lots of
oral retellings of these stories to help us when we write our own.
As mathematicians we will be learning about multiplication and division. We will investigate
fractions including halves and quarters using practical resources. We will also use language
to describe position and direction.
As scientists we will be looking at plants and how they grow. We will plant cress and runner
bean seeds and compare their growth rate and physical changes. We will continue to
monitor how the cherry tree changes as the year progresses with a focus on spring.
As artists we will be looking at the famous artist Henry Moore and we will be looking at his
abstract creations and asking ourselves how we feel about them. We will make our own
creations out of clay.
As Geographers we will learn about Nottingham the seaside. We will be looking at the
difference between a city and the coast and make comparisons between Nottingham and a
seaside town to spot similarities and differences. We will then focus on the features of the
seaside and write a leaflet to persuade people to visit a seaside town.
As musicians we will be building on our understanding of pulse, rhythm and pitch. We will
be focusing on “your imagination”.
As always, keep a look out on our Twitter page for a closer look at the work we complete
as the term unfolds
