We have an exciting term ahead of us! The topic which we will be covering this term is called “Under the Sea”. We will incorporate this topic across the curriculum to engage the children in their learning.

Already this half term we have had lots of fun during our aquarium trip. The children had fun learning about different under the sea creatures as well as learning about rock pool habitats. The children used the creatures they saw to innovate the Little Mermaid Story and make it into their own version.

In Science this term we will learn about plants. This will include looking at different types of trees and garden plants. The children will have the opportunity to learn about this aspect of science through multisensory, hands on activities.

In Literacy we are enjoying learning our fiction stories using Talk4Writing. This allows the children to learn the structure and key features of fiction and nonfiction text. This term we will be covering The Little Mermaid and other under the sea stories. We will also write information texts about the creatures we saw on our trip and under the sea poetry. We will also innovate the key texts to allow the children to come up with their own version of the stories. During our daily sessions we will practise handwriting, grammar and spelling. Every Friday the children will also have an opportunity to take part in independent writing which will allow them to apply their skills.

In Maths we will recap over our mastery curriculum. The children will have the opportunities to learn about time, fractions, multiplication and division. We will also learn about data collection in lessons such as Geography and History.
