Welcome to Term 1

Our Topic this term is 'Marvellous Me'

In Literacy the children will be learning how to use and write labels and captions. We will be using our senses to explore our surroundings and use this to write some poetry. When we make our wraps in Science we will be writing some instructions to help us.

In Maths we will be learning about place value: estimating, counting, comparing and ordering numbers. We will be finding one more and one less than a given number. We will explore the operations of addition and subtraction using a variety of strategies (objects, number line, in head). We now need to learn the names of 2D and 3D shapes and we will be describing them using their properties.

In History and Geography we will be drawing our family tree. The children will be finding out about Spalding by looking at a maps and talking about its human and physical features. We will also be looking at significant places and people and finding out how Spalding has changed over the years. We will be looking at a map of our school and using our observational skills to carry out some fieldwork. Over the year we will also be observing changes in the seasons.

In Science we will be learning to name different body parts and investigating our senses. We will be learning about keeping healthy and recognising differeneces and similarities between humans.

In Art and DT the children will be using vegetables to print patterns and printing people using shapes. We will be making self portraits and looking at some of the works of Picasso.

In Cooking and Nutrition we will be talking about healthy eating and we will be designing and making healthy wraps.

In R.E. we will be discussing what belonging to a Christian community means. We will begin to look at the Hindu lifestyle and compare it to that of Christians.

Safety This term we will be discussing keeping safe (eg from medicines) and looking at staying safe when using the internet.
