Theme Learning Questions (History)

Which significant people and events have helped to improve the health of our nation?


Curriculum Coverage

In Maths, we will be learning about money. Within this area, we will be recognising coins and notes, counting and making amounts in pounds and pence, comparing amounts of money, solving calculations with money, and finding the correct change. We will then move onto multiplication and division, in which we will learn to recognise equal groups and focus on the concepts of grouping and sharing. We will also be using arrays to represent multiplication and division problems.   


This half term in English, we will be completing the Read Write Inc Phonics Scheme, which is closely linked to both fictional storybooks and non-fiction books. Within our lessons, we will be exploring a range of grammar, spelling, comprehension and role-play activities, and developing our use of vocabulary and punctuation. We will then begin looking in depth at our English text, 'The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark’ by Jill Tomlinson. The text will be used as a basis to explore different characters, settings and themes, which will help us to begin writing for different purposes. We will continue with our handwriting practice.


In Science, we will be finding out about the basic needs of animals including humans. We will discover how humans go through different life stages as they grow up, and how exercise and diet are important for maintaining a healthy body.  We will also learn about the five senses and their related body parts.  


In RE we will be looking at what we can learn from sacred books, including the parables in the Christian Bible, and the respect that is shown for both the Jewish Torah and the Islamic Qur’an. In PHSE we will be learning about how we can keep safe in different situations, including knowing who we can ask for help if we feel unsafe.
