our learning in the spring term

 

English

We will be learning about non-chronological reports in English which we will link to our previous work on myths and legends. Our model text on unicorns will help us to plan and write our own report about a different mythical creature.

We will also be looking at shape poems as part of our next poetry unit. We will 'magpie' ideas from other poems to help us craft our own shape poem.

 

Maths

We will be working on time and fractions this half term.

Time - reading/writing time from analogue and (12 hr) digital clocks. We will be using number lines to work out the duration of events and converting times from analogue to digital and vice versa.

Fractions - We will be learning to understand what a fraction is, deciding if an object has been split into equal/unequal parts. Learning to count in tenths and finding fractions of an object or amount.

Science

We will be starting our unit on Animals Including Humans which will continue after the Easter Holidays. This unit helps us to understand how plants/animals get food and what food types/nutrients are needed for a healthy, balanced diet. We will learn about vertebrates and invertebrates along with the names of the bones in a human body. We will also look at the function of a skeleton and muscles before investigating the effects of exercise on our bodies.

PE lessons will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays - please ensure that you have your kit in school, and that it has your name on it. 

 

Roaming Romans
