Miss Brown and Mrs Wilmington
Welcome to the summer term in Dragonflies class.
We are very excited about all the new learning opportunities that await.
In English this term we will be looking at a range of quality texts to inspire writing for a range of purposes, including narrative, information, poetry and more. We will develop and refine our handwriting, application of spelling rules, use of punctuation and grammar. We will continue to develop our fluency in reading, discuss and retell our stories referring to the beginning, middle and end and distinguish between fiction and non-fiction texts.
In Maths we will develop our knowledge of place value and numbers up to 100, solve problems involving multiplication and division and find a half and a quarter of a quantity and shape. We will consolidate our learning in addition and subtraction, shape and measure and develop fluency in counting in twos, fives and tens.
Within our ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ topic, we will explore our enquiry question ‘Where in the world am I?’ by learning about a significant historical figure, Christopher Columbus, and considering geographical similarities and differences through the study of the United Kingdom and a contrasting non-European country.
We will continue to observe seasonal changes as well as investigate everyday materials in Science, create tints, tones, prints and patterns in Art, and learn about Jewish beliefs and the covenant in RE.
We look forward to another term of learning and growing together.
