In English, we will be focusing on an extract from the book “The Three Billy Goats Gruff.” We will be looking at the dialogue within the book and how we change our voices when speaking within character. We will continue our learning on how to use capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and descriptive language.
In Maths, we will be working on multiplication and division before beginning to explore the topic of time in terms of the days of the week, months of the year and units of time. We will also be looking at making totals with money and thinking about how much each coin and bank note represents.
In Science, we will be researching different types of every day materials we might find in our local environment. We will be using adjectives to describe what they feel like and what they can be used for.
In Humanities this term, we will be exploring compasses by learning about the different directions they show and how magnetics help them to work. We will then look at and identify physical and human features on maps. We will also be visiting Lesnes Abbey to enrich our learning further.
In RE this term, we will be learning about Sikhism. We will be finding out about the core beliefs, the holy book and the place of worship. We will be using the VR goggles to visit a Gurdwara, discussing what it looks like.
In Art this term, we will be learning how to use different media such as pencils to sketch, clay to model and cards to create art. Once we have used techniques such as squeezing, pinching and scoring with our clay we will then decorate and varnish our finished creations. When using card we will use 2D shapes to create pictures.
