Summer 2

Theme Learning Question:

Do we like to be beside the seaside?

 

Curriculum Coverage:

In English, our text this term is Zeraffa Giraffa by Diane Hoffmeyer. This book is a true story of Zeraffa a giraffe who was sent a gift from Egypt to France in 1827. We will be learning how to use persuasive language within our writing and use this to write a persuasive guide for visiting Zeraffa at the Jardin des Plantes in Paris.

 

 

In Maths this term we will be focusing on Time, Angles, Mass and Capacity. Within time, we will be learning how to tell and write the time from 12-hour and 24-hour digital clocks. This is something you could get practising at home! Within our angles topic we will be learning how to identify whether angles are greater than or less than a right angle. Within our Mass and Capacity unit we will be learning how to measure the weight of an object and to use equipment to do this.

 

 

In Science, we will be learning about important scientists and their scientific discoveries and how they have affected our day to day life. They will link back to the topics we have learnt over the past year to further deepen their knowledge and understanding of past learning.

 

Our theme this term is all about the seaside and we will be learning about the British coast with a particular focus on Hunstanton. We will be exploring human and physical features of the coast and we will learn how to identify these on a map. We will also be learning about the landscape of the coast and how this changes over time. We will also be learning about a Saint-Tropez in France and how this is the same and different to Hunstanton in the UK.
