Welcome back to Term 6!
This term our theme is
The World on our Doorstep!
We are going to be looking at the amazing variety of living things around us!
This term, as part of our EPIC learning, we will be thinking about how we can be reflective learners.
In Science, we are going to be thinking about living things and their habitats. We will start by identifying the characteristics of living things and then move on to study a variety of habitats. We will investigate living things found local micro-habitats and how they are suited to their environment before moving on to think about food chains.
In Art, we will be learning about mono-printing using carbon copy paper. We will use this technique to create prints of natural objects. Later in the term, we will be making 3D masks of animals found in different habitats around the world.
In ICT, we will be using Scratch Jr to create and debug simple programs. We will also be learning how to use the internet to research safely.
In RE, we will continue with out theme 'Belief in the World: How should we care for the World and why does it matter?'. We will be thinking about what Christians, Jewish people and non-religious people believe about caring for others and our world.
In English, we will be thinking about narrative writing. We will be listening to and reading stories by Anthony Browne. We will be investigating the features of his writing before writing our own version of one of his stories. Later in the term, we will be looking at character descriptions and learning how to write one of our own.
In Maths, we will start the term by thinking about the most efficient method to solve problems before moving on to work on Measurement. When learning about time, we will tell the time to quarter past and quarter to as well as to the nearest 5 minutes. We will also find and compare time durations. Later in the term, we will move on to learning about weight, volume and temperature.
What a busy, exciting term it is going to be!
