Theme Learning Questions (History)
What toys did my Grandparents and Great Grandparents play with?
In Maths, we will be moving on to our second unit on addition and subtraction. Within this area, we will be looking at different methods for adding and subtracting 2 digit numbers. We will also be solving missing number problems, and problems which have more than one step. We will then move onto our unit on shapes, in which we will learn to identify the properties of various different 2D and 3D shapes.
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 storybooks 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 use of vocabulary and punctuation in our writing composition, and finding ways to make our sentences more interesting to the reader. We will continue with our handwriting practice, with the aim of starting to join our letters.
In Science, we will be finding out about the properties and uses of everyday materials, as well as discussing their suitability for different purposes. We will observe how we can change the shape of some materials, and how other materials might already come in different forms, depending on how they have been processed.
RE sees us looking at the question, ‘What is precious to Jewish people?’ This will include learning about Shabbat and Hannukah. We will also be re-creating the true story of Christmas in our Nativity Play. In PHSE we will be learning about how we can value difference, and maintain positive relationships with others.
