We will begin our half term by reading some books about Paddington Bear. Children will look at emotions within a few of the books, thinking about Paddington’s new experiences and what he has learned on each new adventure. The children will then write their own adventure for Paddington to go on. We will also look at instructional writing, recipes in particular. This will link to our DT topic and will include looking at the features of recipes and writing our own.
We will begin by looking at fractions of 2D shapes and numbers. We will focus on quarters, halves and thirds. We will move on to look at measuring weight, length and capacity. We will finally be looking at reading and showing time on a clock. We will focus on reading time to the nearest 5 minutes.
Our History topic this term is:
What was life like in 1953?
We will look in detail at the coronation celebration of Queen Elizabeth II. We will consider how life has changed in terms of fashion, food, games and football kits. We will imagine what life is like for the Queen and write memoirs and diary entries.
Our Science topic this term is:
We will be looking at how we can keep our bodies healthy. We will be exploring a variety of fruit from around the world and how they benefit our bodies. We will discuss how a balanced diet can help keep our bodies fit and well.
We will look at stories from the Bible where Jesus has been a good friend. We will read the story of Palm Sunday and learn about Zaccheus. We will think how we can also be good friends.
We will be conducting research on the computers linked to our Narrative text ‘Paddington Bear’. We will create and conduct surveys around sandwiches and analyse the data.
We will be tasting a range of sandwiches for our Design Technology this term. We will be designing and making a healthy balanced alternative for Paddington Bear using our knowledge and understanding from our Science lessons.
