Spring Term 1

Our PE days are on Monday and we will be going swimming on Wednesday afternoon with Mrs Rawlings.



In Literacy this term, we will be focusing on The Tiger Who Came to Tea. We will look at writing a recount of the story (using first, then, next and finally). Then we will have a go at writing a letter using the book as a stimulus. We will finish the term off with some poetry writing.



In Maths we will be looking at numbers to (and sometimes beyond) 50. We will look at breaking these numbers into 10s and 1s, as well as using them for addition and subtraction. We will also look at counting in 2s and 10s, and doubling numbers as well.



Our science this term is focusing on materials and their properties. We will look at sorting materials by material and by property, and learn new words like 'transparent' and 'rigid'.



We are going to be focussing on Neil Armstrong in History this term. We will look at why he is significant and the timeline of his life.



Our topic in Geography is Rutland to Australia. We will look at our immediate environment in Oakham, and then compare it with Australia!



Continuing on our theme of Australia, we will learn about Aztecs and Aztec artwork in our Art lessons.
