Our Learning - Terms 1 & 2

English

We have read a range of traditional tales, and explored the different perspectives of the characters and how the stories may be different when told from their point of view. 

We then read Stone Age Boy and used this as a stimulus for a range of writing tasks such as diary entries and instructions.

Recently we have watched part of The Croods, explored the feelings of the main characters, and written our own poems and setting descriptions.

We are currently learning about writing engaging narrative using the short film below as a starting point:

Spelling/Phonics is taught daily using the Soundswrite Phonics Programme.

Maths

We have learnt about place value, and we have looked at different mental and written methods for the four operations. This will help with more complex problem solving later in the year. We have recently been learning all about fractions, and we are now moving on to real life problems involving money.

Science

Our Science Topic has been Rocks & Soils. We have learnt about the different types of rocks, where they can be found, how they form, their properties and how these can be tested. We have also learnt about how fossils are formed and we have begun to learn about what soil is and why not all soils are the same.

A Fossil

Topic

We have really enjoyed learning how Stone Age people lived and how they moved from being hunter gatherers and learnt how to cultivate crops. We have discovered how early man gradually began to develop their technology and tools and learnt how to work metal to begin the Bronze Age and later the Iron Age.

Stone Age Life

Computing

We have got to grips with the school laptops, learning how to log on using our own usernames and passwords and we have been learning about how to stay safe online. Soon we will be learning how to use Scratch to create our own animations.

PE

We have been developing our skills in Hockey, Dance and Gymnastics.

RE

In Term 1 we investigated why festivals are important to different religious communities. This term we have been thinking about why people from different religions pray and the importance that this has in their lives.

PSHE

We have been learning about personal development and citizenship. We have also learnt about bullying as part of anti-bullying week.

Spanish

After learning a little about the country of Spain and other parts of the world which speak Spanish, we began our language journey with greetings, introducing ourselves and giving information about ourselves, such as our age. We are now moving onto colours and animals.
