PROJECT TO BE COMPLETED OVER THE EASTER HOLIDAYS OR WHILE YOU ARE AT HOME DOING HOME LEARNING
Research a UK landmark and make a model of it to bring into school. It could be a human landmark eg Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Bramall Hall or you may choose a natural landmark eg Loch Ness, Mount Snowdon.
It's up to you. You could make your model out of lego, paper, junk materials or even a cake. Be creative.! If your model is too fragile or precious then you can take a photo of it instead of bringing it in. If you do not have materials then you could make a poster or booklet about your landmark instead.
Welcome back for Spring Term part 2!
We have a very busy term ahead. Our main topic this half term is Marvellous Mapping and we will be looking in depth at the UK. We will be learning about the countries and seas which make up the United Kingdom. We will be looking at maps and some of the landmarks and traditions which make these countries unique. We will be looking at Katie Morag stories by Mairi Hedderwick and Katie in London by James Mayhew. We will also be looking at the Dotty Spotty Daffodil.
In Science, we will be looking at plants. We will talk about what plants need to stay alive and will sort seeds and use magnifying glasses to look at them closely. We will be doing lots of planting and making observations.
In English we will be continuing to look at the spelling patterns used for contractions and plurals and suffixes. We will be writing charcter descriptions and poetry about Spring and beautiful plants appearing.
In RE we will be looking at 'Salvation' through the story of Zaccheus and of course Palm Sundaty and the events leading up to Easter.
Maths will be all about fractions and shapes. This will include fractions of shape and quantity. In shapes we will be learning about vertices, edges, right angles, faces and sides. We will also recap on calculation through the use of money.
As you can see, we have a very busy term ahead.
Thank you for your support
