Summer

 

 

English

 

In English this term, we will be creating a wide range of text types including narrative stories, newspaper reports, information texts, letters, diary entries and poems. To do this, we will use a range of quality texts to base our work on such as Fantastic Mr Fox and Flotsam.

 

Maths

 

In maths we will explore measure as we use standard and non standard units to measure and compare items. We will then focus our learning on position and direction. Children will use language to describe position and direction. They will describe the position of objects and shapes from different starting positions. 

During Summer 2 children will learn about the measurement of time and the measurement of mass, capacity and temperature. 

 

Science

 

Our first topic in science for the Summer term will be Plants. Children will have the opportunity to closely study plants in the natural environment. They will set up a comparative experiment to observe what plants need to grow well, and watch the germination process first hand. Children will begin to learn about plants we eat, and understand that farming involves creating the right conditions for food crops to grown. 

When we return from half term our next science topic will be: The Environment. Children will be introduced to the ecological challenges that face the modern world. They will undertake a range of activities that challenge them to engage with environmental issues and to understand the simple changes we can make to live more sustainable lives. 

 

History / Geography

 

In the first half of the summer term our learning will focus upon changes beyond living memory as we learn about the history of farming. Children will be able to explain the differences between past and present in our life, the lives of others, from different times in history. They will learn about the significance of the rural to urban landscape; changing role of women and mechanisation. 

When we return from half term our learning will be about oceans and seas. We will locate oceans and continents of a world map, describe the human and physical features of an ocean. We will relate the link between plastic and pollution in the worlds oceans and describe how people can take care of the worlds oceans. 

 

SMSC / PSHE

Whilst reading the story, Fantastic Mr Fox children will be asked to think about the key questions: Is stealing always wrong?

In Summer 2 children will be asked to think about the world around them, they will focus upon the environment in Science and will discuss how to be a good citizen. 

In PSHE our focus will be health and wellbeing and living in the wider world.  We will learn some of the things that keep our bodies healthy, about making healthy choices and personal hygiene. We will then learn about looking after the local environment, about people in our community and how to get help in an emergency.  

 

DT

In our summer term children will begin by making a picnic using different products. They will examine food types,  explore and taste different picnic food, follow instructions, design a piece of food to take on a picnic, make picnic food from a design and then evaluate their products. 

 

Art

When we return from half term and our focus artist will be the story Flotsam by David Weisner. We will use textile techniques to create pieces inspired by the ocean. 

 

RE

This half term we will learn about why we have rules and routines and how they help us in our everyday lives. Children then go on to learn about rules and routines from the viewpoint of different religions; Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Sikhism. 

In the second half of our summer term children will read religious stories to find out what we can learn from these. 

 

Computing

This term we will teach children to create and debug algorithms. Children will use the basic commands in Logo to move and draw using the turtle on screen, and then further develop algorithms using the ''repeat'' command. These skills will then be developed by teaching children to create algorithms in Scratch using a selection of blocks. 

 

 

 

English

 

Summer 1 Week 1: This week we started our focus book. 

We then spent our first lesson getting to know the characters; fantastic Mr Fox and the 3 grumpy farmers. 

Summer 1 Week 2: This week we have been planning our own newspaper reports about the events taking place in our focus story. We are looking forward to sharing these with you.

Summer 1 Week 2: This week we talked about the use of adjectives and noun phrases to describe characters. We created our own Wanted Posters to help the farmers catch Fantastic Mr Fox.

Summer 1 Week 1: This week we talked about what plants need to survive. We then set up our own comparative study to find out what happens to a seed when it is put in a dark place compared to a seed that is given light.

Summer 1 week 2: We have been keeping an eye on our comparative test this week and can confirm that our seeds have started to grow....

This week we used our knowledge about what seeds and plants need to survive to decide where we should plant in the school environment. We read the information on the back of a seed packet to find out what the plant needed and then found this beautiful spot for them.

In PSHE we talked about what was safe and not safe to eat when in the home and when out on a walk. 

During our lesson we were given a scenario to act out. We then showed our ideas to the class.
