This term, we will be building on our knowledge of plants and exploring the life cycle of flowers and how seeds are dispersed. We will also be making careful observations on plants and identifying and labelling the main parts.
We will also be looking at living creatures and their habitats and the impact of the environment is having on them. We will also be working scientifically to collect data, record the results and use these results to ask and answer questions and make predictions.
We will be setting up a range of scientific enquiries and exploring how they can be achieved fairly.
Our topic this term is called ‘Take One Picture’, and we will be exploring and thinking about, ‘What is the Power of Art?’ We will be learning all about Pablo Picasso, his styles and techniques as well as his significant paintings. Our topic will also link with our writing where we will be studying traditional tales from around the world.
PE will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so please come dressed for PE on those days.
Please remember to read at home and practice times tables.
This term, our topic is ‘What is an island?’ We will be focussing on the countries that make up the United Kingdom and comparing and contrasting key human and physical features. As well as learning about other islands just off the UK, such as the Scilly Isles, we will also find out about islands around the world and use Google Earth to explore them further. Our reading will also link in with this topic and we will be sharing the Michael Morpurgo story ‘Why the Whales Came’ which is set on the Scilly Isles, just off the Cornish coast.
