Spring 1

This term our topic will have the science focus of 'Plants'.


In English we will be rewriting the story of 'Wild' by Emily Hughes making sure that it has a clear beginning, middle and end.  Following this we will take the story of 'The Little Gardener' by the same author and writing a setting description using one of her beautiful illustrations.



In Maths we begin to work with Fractions followed by learning to measure length and height.  Please continue to practise your 2, 5 and 10 times table on Times Table Rockstars.



In Science we will be exploring plants.  We will plant seeds and bulbs and test the different conditions a plant needs to be able to grow.



In R.E. we will be learning about Easter celebrations and symbols. This unit will give children an understanding that symbols are pictures or objects with a deeper meaning and a story to tell. In addition to this it will extend the children’s knowledge of the Easter story and the concept of salvation.





In art this term we will learn how to make printed patterns using the work of William Morris as inspiration.  We will link our art to computing where will ask ourselves the question, 'Can you create better art with a computer?'.








Don't forget to read every day.  Get lost in a good book!
