Welcome to Term 3

Our Topic this term is 'Toys'

In Literacy we have been asking and answering questions about toys, this means using a question mark. The children will also be looking at stories with patterned language eg Brown Bear, Brown Bear and Polar Bear, Polar Bear. We will be using non-fiction texts to learn about the features of information books: headings, sub-headings, captions and how to use the contents and index pages.The children will be using a dictionary to learn about alphabetical order. Towards the end of term we will be using the film 'Toy Story' to write character descriptions and think about the feelings of characters in stories.

In Maths we will be continuing to count in multiples of 2 and 5. We will be using arrays to help us solve multiplication and division number sentences, counting in 2s and 5s. While working on place value we will be learning about ordinal numbers and partitioning two digit numbers into 10s and 1s, using dienes cubes and money. We will be continuing to use a variety of strategies to work out addition and subtraction number sentences and applying their skills to solving problems. During our 3D shape topic we will be making a special toy using a cube.

In History and Geography we will be learning about toys this term. We will look at different toys and think about what age children they are suitable for and why. We will look at old and new toys and compare what materials they are made of. We will have the chance to ask a visitor questions about their old toys. In Geography we will be making maps of toy town and looking at human and physical features. Our special 'Teddy Day' at the end of term will include us finding out about how teddy bears got their name!

In Science we will be learning about the types of materials used to make our toys. We will be thinking about which is the best material to make a waterproof coat for a teddy bear and we will be using cars and ramps to carry out an investigation.

In Art and DT the children will be using charcoal to make some pictures of bare winter trees. They will be using sketching techniques to draw teddies, through observation, and making teddy bears with moving parts.
