Welcome back to the Spring Term!

To start off the term in English, we will be exploring and performing poetry, including shape poems.  We will be studying the various features of poems such as alliteration, similes, onomatopoeia and personification before writing our own poems.  Also, our focus will be on a range of non-fiction texts which will be linked to our science topic, ‘Animals’. 

In maths, we have been recapping partitioning and exploring different ways to partition numbers.  We will continue to learn and revise strategies for addition and subtraction using concrete objects and pictorial representations.  Towards the end of this half-term, we will begin to investigate time.

In science, as we explore our topic, ‘Animals Including Humans’, the children will be building on their knowledge of animal groups and sorting them using their own criteria. This term, our humanities topic will be learning about our wonderful home city, London, learning about many geographical features and how they compare to another major world city. 

In art, we will be sketching London landmarks and in DT, the children will design and make a moving structure linked to our topic of London.

In RE, the children will explore Hindu traditions and beliefs and, in music, they will explore the music of India and play a variety of tuned and un-tuned instruments. ‚Äč

Our living value this half-term is ‘responsibility’ and we will be doing lots of activities around this.

We would really appreciate your help in reading with your child regularly at home and ensuring their reading record is in their book bag each day. Please go to the Google Classroom for more phonics materials to use at home.

If you have any questions please get in touch with your class teacher. Thank you once again.
