Spring Term 2019:
This term our topic is Rainforests. We have learned where in the world rainforests are located. We know about the four layers and the creatures that live in each layer.
Our English work has looked at the animated film 'The Jungle Book'. We used clips to write setting and character descriptions. We then used the book 'Where the Forest meets the Sea' as inspiration to write our own adventure stories.
More recently we have written list poems using what we have learned about the creatures that live in the rainforest.
Next we are going to be writing factfiles on rainforest animals we will use the internet to research. Hopefully we will be able to find lots of fun facts.
Most recently we have had a visitor who came into school. The children loved seeing some rainforest animals that were brought into school. Most were very surprised to learn that chickens lived in rainforests.
In Science we have been learning about plants. We found out about some plants with special adaptations that mean they can survive in rainforest conditions.
In Maths we spent the first few weeks consolidating our knowledge of Multiplication and Division. We have also completed units on Money and Statistics. Next we are going to be learning about Length and Perimeter.
We are having a big push on times tables at the moment and do weekly times table challenges.
In PE we have had half a term of dance. The children are now working with a coach and learning new skills and terminology in Archery.
