This term we are busy learning about magical things through our theme Hocus Pocus!
We have been looking at how potions were used in medicine from Medieval Britain and will continue to develop our chronological understanding and enquiry skills as we see how they are today. We will be looking at an important scientist responsible for helping to make modern medicine and what they did.
We know that all good science begins with an inquisitive mind, good questions and discovering new things through exploration and practical learning and talking about what we see. We will continue our work on working scientifically that we worked hard on in the Autumn Term as we look at states of matter as we develop our understanding of solids liquids and gases.
In English this term, we will be using the book ‘The Worst Witch’ by Jill Murphey to inspire our writing. We will be writing a range of text types including poems, diary entries, recounts and narratives. We will also be using this text, alongside others to develop our comprehension skills focusing on defining and inferring.
In Geography, we will be continuing to build on the work we covered in the Autumn Term including identifying a range of physical features on maps, drawing sketch maps and reading maps. We will also be thinking about why people choose to live where they do using physical features to help us.
During RE this term, we will be trying to answer the questions, ‘What does it mean to be Hindu in Britain today?’ and ‘Why do Christians call the day Jesus died Good Friday?’ We will explore the importance of community within this.
In PSHE this term, we will be looking at the areas ‘Dreams and Goals’ and ‘Healthy Me’.
In French this term, we will be learning the vocabulary for families and pets and Easter. We will be using this vocabulary to write down some sentences in French.
Due to remote learning some of the exciting activities we had originally planned are no longer possible due to be unable to access resources, children not being able to work collaboratively and safety aspects of certain lessons. We have adapted some of these to make them as manageable as possible for families to make it suitable for remote learning.
In Maths, we will be focusing on number and understanding Place Value, as well as exploring how to solve problems and strengthen our reasoning skills. We will also be learning shapes in geometry. We will work hard to learn our multiplications and have weekly tests.
