This term we are going to be learning about how animals, humans and plants grow and the things that they need to grow strong and healthy. We will look at plant life cycles and keep a diary of how the seed we care for grows.
In writing we will follow instructions and write our own on planting seeds using bossy verbs and action words. Our main story focus will be Jack and the Beanstalk - reading different versions, writing our own version and thinking about how the different characters might retell the story.
In phonics we will continue to work through Phase 5 making sure that children are secure with these phonemes in preparation for the Phonics Screener next term.
During our maths lessons we will be focusing on number place value using larger numbers up to 100. We will use them to solve addition and subtraction problems. We will use our topic to make links where possible to make the lessons fun and interactive.
The topic will be explored further in the afternoons, using music, art, and DT. In science we will visit our weather station to see how the weather changes in Spring compared to Winter and will learn about the different parts of a plant. In art we will use plants and flowers to create still life sketches and drawings. In history we will think about how we have changed as we've grown and the milestones that we have achieved in our lifetimes, and historical events that have happened.
