What's coming up this term?

Welcome back everyone!  It is so nice to see everyone after the Christmas break and the children have returned to school ready to work hard this term.  

This term we are looking forward to exploring our new topic "Hull and beyond........ , which focuses on Space.



This term we are focusing our literacy around our text, "Daddy on the Moon".  We will be signifying the story and studying how the author forms a five part narrative.  We will be inventing our own story characters and writing them into our very own space story.  We will be building super space rockets and writing instructions to help others create them too!



In maths, we are going to be using our space topic to help us learn about time.  We will investigate how long it takes to get to the moon, how long we are visiting for and what time we are due to arrive home.  Whilst looking at different coins, we will be buying souvenirs from the space station.  We will be using 2D and 2D shapes to help us to build spaceships and planets.





Our science topic for this term is Materials.  We will be identifying materials and their properties, grouping materials and considering which materials are chosen for particular purposes.

We will be using our powers of observation to carry out various experiements, record the results of these experiments and consider how successful our experients have been.
