Welcome back Barn Owls!
We are now in the Spring Term. This term we have lots of exciting new adventures to dive into.
Our theme this term is ‘Wind in the Willows’!
English: In English we will be starting the term with celebrating the New Year by reading and creating some New Year poems, before looking at how the Chinese Zodiac came to be in the story of ‘The Great Race'.
Later, we will be reading the story of ‘The Wind in the Willows’ and exploring the wonderful world of Ratty, Mole, Badger and Toad. We will even be writing a new adventure for the woodland characters to embark on.
To finish off this spring term, we will create our own non-fiction fact files based around a woodland creature.
Maths: This term in maths, we are going to begin with recapping and adding to our knowledge of adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers. Then we will be refreshing our understanding of our number bonds and how to use them to solve problems, as well as finding the difference by counting on.
In the middle of the term, we are going to being learning how to find change from £10 and £20 using different methods before moving onto exploring shape and time.
We will finish off the term with rounding, estimating, and comparing numbers up to 100. Throughout this term, we will also be continuing to practise our knowledge of our 2s, 5s and 10s.
Science: Linked to our theme of ‘Wind in the Willows’, this term our science is based around living things. We will be exploring what makes something living or non-living by learning how we class something as living.
Then we will be investigating different habitats, including habitats around the world and the micro-habitats we see every day. We might even have a go at making our own micro-habitat for the wildlife we have in our school grounds.
if the weather looks particularly wet and miserable on a PE day, please also send your child in with a - just in case!
We will be creating landscape pictures based around Monet in art and taking photos of wildlife in computing. In RE we are going to be learning about Judaism and their traditions of Passover and in PSHCE we will be thinking about those who are special to us and how to deal with a range of situations we may come across in our day to day lives.
I am really looking forward to the learning adventures we have planned for this term and can not wait to see how high the Barn Owls fly in their learning.
Welcome to Autumn Term 2!
This term we are starting the new and very exciting topic of 'explorers'.
I am looking forward to discovering how Neil Armstrong reached the moon and how Christopher Columbus journeyed across the seas with the Barn Owls this term.
Alongside this, we will be looking even further into the different properties of materials in science, deepening our understanding of 2 digit numbers in maths and we will be starting English exploring the text 'Journey' by Aaron Becker.
Please find this term's new homework grid below and this week's maths and spelling activities too.
Please be aware that some of these notices may change in the coming weeks but I will make sure to inform you of any tweaks:
I cannot wait to see what exciting, new adventures this school year brings!
