Welcome back for another term. Can you believe that we are back for our 6th and final term of the year?! And, as always, it’s going to be a busy one, fitting in Sports Day (Wednesday 10th June), Spanish Arts Day (Tuesday 23rd June), our school trip (Friday 26th June), and Aspirations Day (Thursday 9th July), to name but a few special events, alongside the rest of our learning.
This term in literacy we are returning to journey stories, which was our first fiction topic in Year 1. We will be learning a story about a duck who got his truck stuck in some mud, and then making our own changes to the story, to make it fit with our topic this term, which is ‘Around the World’. Our non-fiction topic for this term will be recounts, which will link nicely to our class trip.
In maths we are continuing to recap skills taught earlier in the year, such as time and money. We are also waiting for the weather to warm up so we can get outside with the water trays, to learn about capacity.
In keeping with our Around the World topic, our geography and art each week will relate to different continents. We will be thinking about similarities and differences in weather, animals, food and traditions (amongst other things) between the continents.
In RE we are continuing to learn about Christianity, with our focus this term on stories that Jesus told.
In computing we will be collecting, rearranging and saving pictures and photographs from the internet.
In history we will be learning about the life of Queen Elizabeth II.
Our PE this term is athletics, so fingers crossed for nice weather so we can have all our lessons outside. 🙂
