Term 5

Term 5


Does weather affect our life?


Hot and Cold

We are going to be using maps and globes this term to locate different countries and identify what types of weather they have. Is the weather similar to that in the UK? What is typical British weather like? How can we measure the weather? We will also have a go at naming and locating the seven continents and five oceans. Can you name any oceans?


English and Phonics

This term we will be focussing on the Katie Morag series of books as these often link to types of weathers. We will be looking at increasing stamina for writing during the summer terms and ensuring children demarcate their sentences correctly using full stops and capital letters! Phonics will be moving onto phase 5 and filling any gaps our children have along the way. Our phonics assessments usually take place in June and there will be more information provided nearer the time. 



What is your favourite type of weather? Why? We will be looking into ways of measuring and recording weather this term and how we can prepare ourselves for different types of weather. Do you wear a different uniform in December to now? What about the coat you are wearing? How does your hat change and why? We will also have the opportunity to investigate types of clouds and go cloud spotting!
