Term 1 

2020 to 2021

TOPIC TITLE: OUR LAND, OUR COUNTRY

 

Topic: We are thinking about Geography this term, as we learn about rivers in the UK. This will involve locating rivers in an atlas, understanding the importance of rivers and finding out more about the River Medway. We will also look at the water cycle.

 

English: We will start by sharing ‘Tuesday’ by David Weisner (a book about flying frogs), looking in great detail at the pictures to fully understand the story and to give us great words, which we can then use in our own stories. We will then move onto ‘The Rhythm of the Rain’, which we will use to help us to understand and write about the water cycle. Handwriting and spelling of common exception words will also remain a focus.

 

Maths: We will begin by exploring what each digit in a 2 and 3 digit number is worth, whilst counting on and back in 10s and 100s. Addition and subtraction will then be our focus for the remainder of the term. Please remember to continue to use Times Tables Rock Stars at home to practise the times tables.

 

Science: Our theme this term is light, exploring what we mean by light, investigating how and why we get shadows and how and why they move and change.  Please see the video link.

 

Computing: We will be using coding to move images around the screen this term. E-safety will also be covered.

 

RE: The focus this term is Islam, as we think about if praying regularly through the day helps Muslims in their everyday lives.

 

Art: This term we are sketching, exploring tone and textures in pictures and then using that knowledge to create our own pictures.

 

Music: We will be learning to sing in time with our class so we can sing in rounds.  Please see the video link.

 

PE: We will be developing football and fitness skills this term.

 

PSHE/SMSC: We will be developing our ability to recognise the needs of all members of a community, before creating a park where they will all be happy. We will then acknowledge what makes our peers special.

FREE AUDIO BOOK AREA

 

Listening to stories is an invaluable way to increase understanding of vocabulary as well as developing good listening skills. 

 

Here are a couple of websites which offer free audio books for children to listen to. This might be instead of reading aloud to a parent or in addition! (It is still important to hear your child read at least every few days).
