Our Learning this week...

Maths

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 learn methods to solve addition and subtraction calculations.

Literacy

This half term we will continue to refine our key writing skills. We will be ensuring that the children are still using finger spaces, correct letter formation, capital letters, full stops, conjunctions, adjectives and varied punctuation. For the next few weeks we will be looking at firework poetry and creating our own exciting poem.

Science

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.

Topic (History)
In History we will be learning about the Great Fire of London. We will learn about the key events that took place at that time, evaluating sources of evidence and learn about the life of Samuel Peyps.

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.

Computing
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.
