Topic

 

This term, in our topic learning, we will be exploring Plymouth and looking at where it is in the world. The children will learn about the human and physical features and create a simple map with a key. We will then compare Plymouth to India and talk about the similarities and differences. The children will learn about different landmarks, weather and population. In our art lessons, the children will learn about the different ways art is used in India and there will be time to pracitse some of these skills to create our own rangoli patterns.

In our RE learning, we will continue to look at Christianity and learn about the important signs and symbols. We will explore what these means to Christians which will help us to rememeber about significant beliefs. 

In Computing, we will be learning that stories can be represented in different ways including presentations, eBook and audio books. This will be based on the traditional tales that they have learnt. 

 

English

This term, our English work will be based on the Disney's 'Jungle Book' to help us to develop our reading comprehension and our Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar skills.  We will look closely at word types (nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives), apostrophes for contractions and for possession as well as revising what we already know about punctutation. Our reading comprehension skills will include, inference, sequencing and understanding vocabulary. We will look carefully at different question styles and talk about the best way to answer them.  

 

Remember, you can log into Bug Club at home to help you with your reading and comprehension skills.https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0

 

 

Mathematics

This term, the children will be engaged in a range of activities to improve their fluency in knowing how to count up to and beyond 100. They will know how to partition numbers into tens and ones and in a variety of combinations. They will know how to recognise odd and even numbers and will compare and order numbers up to 100, including using <, > and = signs. The children will then move on to counting in multiples of 2, 5, 10 and 3. This is a great place to start practising counting skills at home.

 

You can log in to 'My Maths' at home to keep practising those important maths skills.https://www.mymaths.co.uk/

 

We are excited about the upcoming term and the warmer weather. We  ask that children bring in a named bottle of suncream that they can apply themselves and to remember their water bottle everyday.  

English

This term part of our English work will be using Disney's The Jungle Book to develop our reading comprehension and spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPaG) skills. 

Some of the SPaG skills we will focus on this term are word classes, apostrophes for contractions and to show possession, as well as consolidating what we know about using other punctuation types.

We will also be focusing on reading comprehension skills including inference, sequencing as well as understanding vocabulary. These are important skills that we will spend time practising and using within a variety of texts and genres. 

 

Maths

Over this term, the children will be continuing with their addition and subtraction work of two 2-digit numbers. They will then use this number knowledge to estimate answers and solve missing number problems. They will be using their number knowledge to find fractions of amounts including, ¼, ½ and ¾ and also find fractions of shapes. The children will continue to develop their understanding of multiplication and division facts and use this to solve problems. Regular practise of these and number bonds will be part of our early morning work. As the term progresses, they will be working on time and practising telling the time to the to the nearest 15 minutes. This is a great skill to practise at home too!
