Our main project will focus on the coast in particular Whitby. We will look at human and physical features of the coast and look in detail at the seaside town Whitby. Our learning of Whitby will end with a trip to the seaside town.
Use of materials
This project teaches children about the uses of everyday materials and how materials' properties make them suitable or unsuitable for specific purposes. They begin to explore how materials can be changed.
This project teaches children about the growth of plants from seeds and bulbs. They observe the growth of plants firsthand, recording changes over time and identifying what plants need to grow and stay healthy.
ART - Flower Head
This project teaches children about the visual elements of flowers, including shape, texture, colour, pattern and form. They also explore various artistic methods, including drawing, printmaking and 3-D forms, using paper and clay.
Design Technology - Beach Hut
This project teaches children about making and strengthening structures, including different ways of joining materials.
In PE there will be two units each focusing on 3 different words Duel, Win, Lose and Inspire, Create, Perform the first unit focuses on team game. The second unit focuses on performance.
RE - How can we make good choices?
In Religious Education, we explore how people face moral choices.
PSHE - What jobs do people do?
In PSHE, we will look at different jobs and look at their roles in society.
Music - Zootime
All the learning is focused around one song: Zootime. music is taught through games, focusing on pulse, rhythm, pitch etc. The children have the opportunity to sing and playing instruments.
Computing - Pictograms
Children will begin to understand what the term data means and how data can be collected in the form of a tally chart. They will learn the term ‘attribute’ and use this to help them organise data. They will then progress onto presenting data in the form of pictograms and finally block diagrams. Learners will use the data presented to answer questions.
In Maths this half term we will continue to learn about multiplication and Division. There will be a huge emphasis put on the children learning their 2x, 5x and 10x tables ready for Year 3. The children will be introduced to TTRockstars and logins will be sent home for the children to practice. Also this half term we will cover Money. This will include making amounts and working out change.
In English, Our reading lessons will focus on the book 'After the fall' by Dan Santat. This is a great book which continues after the nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty. The book tells the story from the perspective of Humpty Dumpty. We will delve deep into the text to broaden the children's understanding of the text.
This half term the children's writing will be based on our main project Coastline. We will be doing some descriptive writing about Whitby and writing a Non-Chronological report about the seaside resort ready for our trip at the end of the half term.
