We're going to enjoying writing fiction and non-fiction pieces based around the Stone Age. We will be writing a fact file, a dairy entry, and a narrative. This will help children focus on understanding different features of texts and how formalities change.
This year we have a huge focus on Reading and this will be heard daily throughout the class as children will be able to hear different texts with their Class Reads.
Children will start the year by focusing on their place value with a particular focus on identifying numbers up to 4 digits. Our scheme of work is called Power Maths. Children will be learning how to make numbers using base 10 and place value counters to enhance their place value knowledge. From this we will expand into teaching children about their knowledge and skills of the four mathematical operations with an extension of word problems.
This term, the children will be learning all about Rocks! They will learn about different types of rocks and compare them based on their appearance and physical properties. Children will also learn about how fossils are formed and how soil is made. They will have the opportunity to understand soil further by investigating the permeability of soils.
This term the children are going to be finding out about early Britain, and we’ll be starting by learning about life, culture, technology, and developments in the Stone Age, moving on to the Iron Age. We will compare the similarities and differences between lives of both ages (art, farming, tribal kingdoms and culture).
In art classes will be looking at typography. We will be exploring the creation of the letters of a tyepface in an intuitive and fun way. We will explore artists such as Theresa Easton and Abigail Winter.
