 The Curriculum

So welcome back! We hope you have had a good Easter break and are ready to start a fresh new term.  This term we will be learning about all those “Helpful Humans” that work to support us and our communities.  We will start by using the book “The Jolly Postman” to discover more about our postal service.  This text explores a variety of styles of letter, postcards and leaflets using a fairy tale setting – fantastic for our Literacy work.  We will be able to examine the fairy tale characters and write character descriptions and all sorts of different letters.  After half term we will then use the book “The Hospital Dog” to think about the work of nurses and doctors as well as how animals can provide support to people.  For Maths we will be working on number, place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, capacity and money.  In Science we will be exploring plants and learning all about how they grow.  We will be growing a variety of seeds in the school gardens and conducting experiments to see how different conditions effect the plants growth. 

Over the term we will be looking to explore the human form and create art work using collage, drawn/painted portraits and peg dolls of helpful humans.  We will also be exploring the classical piece “The Lark Ascending” by Vaughan Williams and creating our own musical compositions.  In Geography we shall be exploring the weather and in History thinking about the nurses Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole.  In Computing we will be using “Clips” to create a short animation and in RE will be thinking more about Judaism.  Our PE will be tennis and working on Invictus Games activities.  A busy term for sure!
