Our learning this half term is based around the topic Over and Under the Ocean
In English we will be reading Dougal's Deep Sea Diary and writing our own story in the style of a diary about an underwater diving adventure. We will then read Poems about the Seaside, and write our own poem based on The Friendly Octopus. Finally we will Postcards from Crabby Spit and write our own postcard to Granny from the beach.
This half term we will be learning about Multiplication and Division and Geometry. We practice arithmetic every day. We will apply our learning in problem solving lessons.
In Science our learning focus will be Animals, including humans. We will learn about the different animal groups and sort and compare animals within these. We will also investigate amphibians with our very own tadpoles. We will also visit Vicar Water and investigate the different animals found there.
In History we will be learning about Grace Darling and her heroic actions.
In Design Technology we will be designing, making and reviewing our very own lighthouses.
In Music we are following the Charanga Scheme of work Reflect, Rewind and Replay.
Our Computing skills will be used throughout the half term in many of our other subjects, and we will also be learning how to create a simple program using Scratch Junior.
Our RHE theme this half term is Changing Me, and we will be doing lots of learning around children transitioning to their new classes. In RE the learning will focus on how and why some stories are important to Christians and Jewish People.
Our Forest School dates are:

We have P.E. on Monday (Gymnastics) and Wednesday (Games). In Gymnastics the children will be accessing the large apparatus in the hall. In Games the children will be learning different striking and fielding skills to prepare them for participating in team games, which this half term will be Quick Cricket. Children will need to come to school in their PE kit on these days, unless the Monday is their Forest School day. Children will need a white or green round neck t-shirt, shorts and plimsolls or trainers. They can also come in navy blue or black joggers and jumper/hoodie. Long hair will need to be tied back. If possible, earrings should be taken out. If this is not possible, they should be covered with plasters or micro-pore tape.
Homework will be posted on Weduc every Friday. This will be a link to an activity on Education City . The children need to complete this by the following Wednesday and they will receive a stamp on their Bear Hunt Sheet for all completed homework.
We expect children to read every night at home, and this to be recorded in the children's reading diary. Children will get stickers in their diary when they have reached 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175 and 200 nights worth of reading, along with a small reward.
