What's coming up this term?

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

This term we are looking forward to exploring our new topic which focuses on science..  Our enquiry question for this term is "What are the four elements of the earth?"

Literacy

During the Spring term we will be writing for a variety of purposes.

Whilst studying materials,  our narrative text will provide opportunities for the children to invent a new story based on the whole class text, The Three Little Pigs. 

The children will also write letters, recounts and reports.

Maths

In maths, we are going to be using our Three Little Pigs topic as a focus for problem solving and investigations.  To begin with this term we will study place value, then division and fractions.  We will also cover the following operations,

Addition

Subtraction

Multiplication

Division

Whilst investigating fractions we will identify different fractions and find fractions of amounts and fractions of shapes.

Science

Our science topic for this term is Materials.  We will be launching our science topic with a trip to the Magna science musuem in Sheffield.

During this topic we will be using our knowledge of materials and their properties in order to help us to make predictions and choose suitable materials for a specific purpose.

During our scientific investigations we will be carrying out simple comparative tests, finding things out using secondary sources of information and asking questions about the results of our investigations.
