Our Learning this week...
Our Maths learning will focus on number and place value. We will be learning a new method this term called bar modelling which will assist the children with their problem solving and number work. We will talk in more detail about this during information evening.
This week we will be revisiting key skills and writing about our summer holidays. We will be ensuring that the children are still using finger spaces, correct letter formation, capital letters, full stops, conjunctions, adjectives and varied punctuation.
This half-term our topic is animals including humans. We will be learning that animals, including humans, have offspring which grow into adults. We will find out about and describe the basic needs of animals for survival (water, food and air). We will also describe the importance of exercise for humans, eating the right amounts of different types of food and understanding hygiene.
In Geography we will be using maps and atlases to investigate the world. We will be using grid refereneces and compass directions to navigate our way around local maps of Potters Bar and use this knowledge to create our own map.
Art and Design Technology
In Art the children will be developing their understanding of lines and shapes and will be using different media to create a variety of pictures.
In Computing we will be developing our coding skills using the ipad. We will be programming different characters to move around within a game to try and earn points. The apps we will use are kodable, daisy the dinosaur and scratch junior.
This term we are learning about different types of balances in Gymnastics and we will be improving our throwing and catching skills in outdoor P.E.
