Welcome back to Term 2!
We hope you all had a lovely half term. Our topic for this term is ‘Wondrous Water’. This will start by being a Science focus, looking at states of matter, in particular the water cycle. The children will look at the effects of evaporation, condensation and precipitation through experiments and observations.
Then, we will be take a deeper look at rivers as a Geography focus and what part they play in the water cycle, with a hope at looking at a case study in our local area. A very exciting topic, I’m sure you will agree!
In other areas of the curriculum, the children will be developing their sewing skills by designing and making a seasonal decoration in Design and Technology. They will discover how a stuffed felt decoration is made and then design and make their own.
In English this term, we will start by exploring poetry, before looking at our fiction text, ‘Flooded’. Throughout the term, we will practise using a range of grammatical features such as conjunctions, fronted adverbials and punctuation to try and construct thoughtful and enhanced pieces of writing.
Finally, in Maths, we will continue our look at place value and number by consolidating addition and subtraction. We will then explore shape and their properties, introducing the technical names for quadrilaterals and triangles and thinking about comparing the features of shapes.
