Our topic for this Spring term is superheroes!
In Maths we are learning about place value with numbers up to 50 using tens and ones equipment.
We are practising counting forwards and backwards in 1s, 10s, 5s and 2s. We will be learning 1 more and 1 less than any number up to 50 and using the language of greater than and smaller than to compare objects and numbers. We will be revisiting the symbols < > and = and ordering numbers.
In History we will be learning about 'real life' superheroes: Florence Nightingale, Neil Armstrong and Rosa Parks. We will explore different types of evidence to find out about the past and learn about how these people have impacted on our lives today.
We will be learning about plants and what they need to grow. We will become gardeners and plant our own bulbs and watch them grow!
Wood visit- We visited the woods close to school to explore what trees and plants we could find. We noticed that a lot of the trees had no leaves. We remembered that these are called deciduous trees and that they loose their leaves in the winter! There were a few signs of buds and things starting to grow. We are going to visit the woods again in the summer to see how the woods change. See our photos below of the woods visit.
In Music, we will be learning how to play the ukulele! This will be a 10 week project which will culminate in a concert which the parents will be invited to.
We will be developing our sketching skills using Marvel Comics as our inspiration.
Design and Technology
We will design, create and evaluate our own superhero vehicles using wheels and axles to create mechanisms.
We will be working on our map skills to create and follow a map to the woods!
As well as our weekly run, we will be doing Gymnastics on a Wednesday and Dance on a Friday.
We will be learning about sacred places, in particular where Christians and Jewish people worship.
We will learn the difference between right and wrong. We will learn about who to tell when things are not right; and that we don't always have to keep secrets. We will learn about bad and good touches, and to recognise and talk about feelings.
