Welcome to Miss Joss's class.

During the Summer term 2017 we are studying...

Literacy

Our key text this term is Jack and the Beanstalk. We love traditional tales and we are excited to continue our learning of a five part story. A key focus will be to invent a new character and change parts of the book. We are also going to be writing a character description based on this story, working hard to use descriptive language, embellished sentences and grammar features.

Following this, we are going to write a letter…but the recipient is top secret! We are hoping to persuade a special team to come and visit us during Kaleidoscope!...Watch this space!

 

Maths

In our maths lessons this term we will be covering addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and fractions.  

The children will be using their knowledge of the four operations in order to solve problems and develop their reasoning skills.

Afternoon maths sessions provide further opportuntiy for children to acquire maths skills based around the topic focus.  During these sessions we will look at time, measure, money and data handling.

Science

In science we are thinking about our bodies, how humans change and what foods we should eat to stay healthy.

Roots and Routes

It's 2017 which means Hull is now the City of Culture! This term our topic is 'Routes and Roots' where we will be exploring more about Hull and how it is a unique place in our changing world. We will be looking at Amy Johnson and how her adventures took her around the world... most importantly to Australia!
