Summer 1

Here is our learning for Summer 1:


In Writing, we will begin by reading The Day the Crayons Quit and use this as inspiration to write our own persuasive letters from the perspective of one of our own overworked/unloved objects. Later in the half term, we will write an explanation text to tell our readers exactly how bees make honey. 


In Oracy, we will continue to refine our speaking skills through a series of weekly debates and relational circles. 


In Maths this half term, we will be revisiting fractions. This will be followed by a unit on money - converting pounds and pence, adding, subtracting and working out change. We will end the half term with a unit on time - reading time on both an analogue and a digital clock. 


In RE, our enquiry question will be 'What are the deeper meanings of festivals'. We will explore Diwali and Eid in order to answer this. 

In Geography, we will be looking at climate zones and the impact that climate change is having on our planet. 


In Science, we will be learning about plants - the life cycle of flowering plants including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal. We will also look at how water is transported within plants and how they adapt to their environment. We will support this learning with a trip to Harlow Carr.  


In Art, we will be looking at pattern. We will consider the use of different tie-dye techniques to create different patterns. 


In French, we will be learning how to say and write fruits and foods. 

In PSHE we will looking at Careers, financial capability and economic well being. We will discuss the difference between needs and wants, consider what influences our saving or spending and look at different employment status,   


In PE and Games  we will are lucky enough, once again, to have Alex come in and teach us tennis skills. We will also be channelling our inner Wild Animals with our dance unit. 


In Music, we will be exploring musical styles and changes in dynamics. Understanding how music helps us to get to know our community.  


In ICT,  we will be learning how we can use use technology to create animations. 


Knowledge Organisers should be used to support your child throughout the topic being covered. They provide end points which is the knowledge that children will gain from this unit of work. They also show the learning that has taken place before and how this will link to future learning. Children will use these both in school and at home to supplement their learning, allowing us to work collaboratively together.
