What are we learning about?
Curriculum Information Summer Term 2019

Theme

This term our theme is ‘Extreme Earth’. Within this we will be exploring the following big questions:

‘What makes the Earth angry?’

‘Which is the odd one out, water, ice or steam?’

 

 

English

The children will start the term by exploring the story ‘The Caravan’ by Pie Corbett, they will then begin to learn and retell the story before they move on to. We will be following the Talk 4 Writing scheme and so therefore over the course of the term the children we complete the imitation, innovation, independent application and building on progression stages. This will allow the children to really focus on all aspect of writing and the impact their writing has. We look forward to comparing their cold writes, written in the previous term, to their hot writes at the end. They will also be continuing to develop our knowledge of key spelling patterns, acquiring new vocabulary, experimenting with a range of sentence structures and improving our cursive handwriting style.

Maths

This half term we will start by looking rounding, before moving on to horizontal, vertical and perpendicular lines. Finally finishing the term by looking at shape.  

Science

In Science this half term, the children will be looking comparing, grouping and observing materials and how they change state. Followed by exploring the water cycle.

Geography

This half term we are going to be learning and understand physical geogpraphy, exploring natural disasters including volcanoes and earthquakes.  

PE

This half term the children are going to develop their team work skills by learning quick sticks. We will also in Forest School to enable the children to explore their outdoor learning.  

R.E

In RE this half term, we are discussing the question: What is the best way for a Buddhist to lead a good life?/

German

This half term we will be focusing on developing conversation skills, including asking ‘Where do you live?’, ‘What’s the weather like?’ days of the week and the alphabet.

PSHE

We will be following the Cambridgeshire scheme of work for PSHE and our starting unit will be ‘Myself and My Relationships’. This unit looks at the importance of relationships and friendships and develops children’s awareness of and ability to form and maintain healthy relationships. This includes the ability to value and empathise with others, manage conflict and recognise how we affect and are affected by others. They will learn about the importance of recognising and valuing both similarities and differences between themselves and other children, including understanding that people live in different family arrangements. They will revisit their networks of special people, identifying those they can talk to about their concerns and how to get support in situations involving friendships and relationships.

Home Learning

Children are encouraged to read with an adult at home every evening and to write in their reading records. They should also try to practise their Big Maths ‘Learn It’s’.
