Summer Term

Summer Term 2 - Should we call Grace O'Malley a pirate?

 

English: This half term our focus text will be You're not a proper pirate Sidney Green. We will also use texts such as The pirate tree and the pirates are coming to support our English lessons. Children will learn to retell stories, changing key parts such as the ending. They will also gather information and create their own text.

 

Phonics: Children will recap all sounds learnt so far within Phases 2, 3 and 5. They will then continue to extend their knowledge, learning a number of alternative ways of writing sounds that they already know. We will also begin to look at ways of using this phonic knowledge in spelling. 

 

Maths: Children will look at new methods such as position, direction, money and time. They will gain knowledge on which they can build and develop skills such as knowing how to tell the time to the hour, as well as half past the hour. Children will also have an understanding of coins and how money can be added to create a total. 

 

Science: Children will learn about living things and their habitats. They will be encouraged to think about the way that living things are classified, as well as thinking about the habitats most local to us. They will also directly compare habitats, questioning  how things could have an effect on other areas such as the food chain. 

 

PSHE: Children will think carefully about ways in which we can look after our environment. They will take part in activities to enhance and support the changes taking place within our school grounds.   

 

History: Children will begin to learn about and question changes beyond living memory. They will research and learn in order to answer the enquiry question; should we call Grace O'Malley a pirate? They will learn about the main events that took place in Grace O'Malley's life, as well as thinking about what life would have been like then. 

 

Religious Education: Children will begin to think about the ways in which we can care for others. They will think abut the things that they do each day as well as relating these to well known Bible stories such as The Good Samaritan. 

 

Music: Children will begin to discuss and share ideas when thinking about music that they create and hear. They will share their own thoughts and opinions, as well as listening to the thoughts of others'. 

 

Computing: Children will develop skills when thinking about algorithms. They will continue to think about computer programming and use a variety of different applications to support and explore. 

 

French: Children will build on existing skills within their spoken French language. They will take part in activities using new vocabulary to talk about animals, preferences and adjectival agreements. 

 

Physical Education: Children will take part in activities to develop their athletics skills. They will practise throwing, jumping and running. They will also take part in practical activities which broaden their understanding of different athletic events.

Summer Term 1 - Is there anything out there?

 

English: Our focus text will be Beegu by Alexis Deacon. Children will use this text and supporting texts such as Toys in Space by Mini Grey and Man in the Moon by Simon Bartram to write for different purposes. These will include: diary entries, non-chronological reports and writing instructions. 

 

Phonics: Children will recap all sounds learnt so far within Phases 2, 3 and 5. They will then begin to extend their knowledge, learning alternative ways of writing sounds that they already know. They will revisit and consolidate all of their phonics in preparation for the phonics screening check, and will practise reading real and alien words. Children will also be encouraged to use their phonic knowledge independently within their writing and when reading.  

 

Maths: Children will work on place value within 100, fractions, multiplication and division, position and direction, money and time.
