Life in the City!
I cannot believe we are already into term 3 where has the time gone?! Our topic this term is 'Life in the City.' Our main focus will be the great City of London. In History we will be looking at London in the past and comparing it to life in 2018. In Geography we will be looking at the different famous landmarks in London, viewing them from an aerial map and labelling different cities in the UK onto a map. In computing we will be using the Ipads and laptops to learn how to use a search engine for research. At the beginning of term we will discuss why and how we need to use the internet safely. In DT we will be selecting our own materials to design, create and evaluate one of London's landmarks. Mrs Small will be taking us for music where we will be looking at selecting our own instruments to make sounds of the City! We have lots of exciting activities to look forward to this term please keep an eye out for any pictures. If you have any questions or would like to have a chat please feel free to find me after school!
This term we will be focussing on the book 'Claude in the City.' We will read the story, look at perfecting our punctuation, character and setting description. All of this will build up to us writing our own story about Claude and making up our own adventures for him! Every afternoon we will have a 15 minute lesson on spellings. This time will include being taught the spelling pattern of the week followed by fun games and activities to help us learn the pattern.
In Maths this term we are continuing to become masters and develop our fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. We will be looking at adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers from 2-digit numbers, multiplication and division. Every lesson we will use our mental maths time to focus on our number bonds!
In science we are looking at transforming into scientists. Every week Miss Beckett will be setting us different challenges and starting the lesson off with a question we have to solve. It is then our job to design a science experiment to answer these question. Watch our for pictures!
PE will be on a Thursday afternoon. This term we will be doing Hockey. Please can all children have PE in school at all times with their names clearly labelled. Can children also have warm PE kit as we will try to go outside as much as possible.
