Theme Learning Questions (Geography)
How can we compare the human and physical geography of Woodhouse Eaves with that of Mbale in Uganda?
In Maths, we will first look at the place value of tens and ones, and then we will begin our unit on addition and subtraction. Within these areas, we will be looking at different visual representation (such as number lines and part-whole models); finding related facts; comparing number sentences; making number bonds to 100; finding 10 more and 10 less; solving missing number problems, and counting in 2s, 5s, 10s and 3s.
This half term in English, we will be continuing with the Read Write Inc Phonics Scheme, which is closely linked to a variety of both fictional story books and non-fiction books. Within our lessons, we will be exploring a range of grammar, spelling, comprehension and role-play activities in meaningful contexts. We will also be developing our vocabulary in our writing composition, and progressing from writing simple sentences to extending our sentences with conjunctions. We will be enhancing our application of punctuation, and developing our use of adjectives to describe and specify. We will also continue with our handwriting practice.
In Science, we will be finding out about changes to the length of day in the U.K. across the year. We will also observe, measure and describe the changing weather associated with the season of Autumn, and think about some of the other changes that this causes. For example: the numbers of insects; the hibernation and adaptation of some animals and birds; seed and plant growth; leaves on trees, and the type of clothes worn by people.
RE sees us looking at the question, ‘What is the Good News that Jesus brings?’ In PHSE we will talk about how to recognise and respond to other people’s feelings, and learn how to be a good, considerate friend.
