Spring Term - What a Wonderful World!

 

This term we will be honing our Geography skills when we travel far and wide, looking at physical and human features of the world. In Literacy, we are delving into the story of The Firework Maker’s Daughter which will take us on an exciting journey to the mountains of Indonesia with the characters Lila, Chulak and a talking elephant Hamlet! Along the way, we will encounter bandits, animals of the jungle and even a fierce fire-fiend in the volcano of Mount Merapi.

 

In Science, we are going to be biologists when we study water transportation and the water cycle as well as looking at earthquakes, mountains and volcanoes.

 

In Numeracy, we will continue to improve our place value knowledge as well as revisit at money and fractions. We will be working on our co-ordinate skills and looking at perimeter.

 

PE:

Indoor - Wednesday

Outdoor - Thursday

This is subject to change. If possible, please bring in PE kits on a Monday and leave them in school all week, as our timetable can often change and we may also have to change due to inclement weather.
