Arthur and the Golden Rope by Joe Todd Stanton

What are we getting up to in Summer 1?

 

Science - We are finding out about plants and what we need to make them grow. We will be growing sunflowers, beans and some cress heads. We will be investigating to find the best conditions to make them flourish.

 

Art and British Values - We will be using the work of Keith Haring to explore our civil liberties. We will look at the messages in his work and their meaning to us.

 

R.E. - We begin a new R.E. enquiry where we will learn more about Hinduism. We will be exploring their attitudes to God and answering the question 'How can Brahman be everywhere and in everything?'

 

Maths - We start this half term completing our work on perimeter and length and then move onto fractions. The recovery part of our curriculum will focus on mass.

 

English - We start this half term by writing a wishing tale. We will be looking at using fronted adverbials and noun phrases in our writing.

Our knowledge organisers for this half term.

In writing we have been looking at discussion texts. We have been trying to decide whether we should come to school over the summer to make up for lost learning in lockdown.

Our art learning 🖼 

For our sensational starter, we created pictures in the style of Keith Haring. Then we practised cross hatching using the mannequins as models. After that, we looked at how we could mix primary colours to help us create more colours. 
For our magical middle, we used different painting techniques to finish our pictures.

Our Science 🧪 learning about plants 🪴 

We have been wondering what plants need to grow. We started off by making some seed model. We had lots of fun testing them 😃. Next we planted some sunflowers and put them in different places to see how well they would grow. We have checked on them every week. Next we planted bean seeds in bags without any soil. We have been checking them and are surprised to find they are growing!

We have also made cress heads and will look forward to seeing them get hairy.

What are we getting up to in Autumn 2?

George has been working incredibly hard at home to extend his geography learning. Here are some of the things that he has been doing.

George's homework tasks

Geography

We are asking the question: Can you be an atlas detective?

The children will learn about different countries in the world, with a focus on the United Kingdom. We will discuss the features and landmarks of the four countries in the UK, and learn where some of the major cities are.

In our science, we are learning about light sources and how we see things. Today we have been investigating which things are the best reflectors.
We have been learning more about the world in our geography lessons. We can name the continents and love listening the continents song and we have also learned about the five oceans by listening to another song. Both are attached below if you would like to hear them too.

We have completed our magnificent middle in geography. We have started to look closer to home now and focussed on the UK. We have created some different pieces of art for a landmark from each country of the UK. We made a model of Big Ben, attempted a model of Edinburgh Castle (it was very tricky), drew a sketch of The Giant’s Causeway and finally painted Mount Snowden.
In our outdoor time we used natural materials to build towers.

What are we getting up to in Autumn 1?

 

Science - We're asking "How do rocks shape our world?"   We want to know about different types of rock and how they are made..  

 

History - We are finding out the differences between life in the stone, iron and bronze ages. We will be finding out about the tools they used and how the discovery of new materials changed the way that people lived.

 

R.E. - We begin a new R.E. enquiry where we will learn about Divali and what it means to belong.  We will be introduced to Hindu beliefs about this celebration.

 

Maths - We start this half term looking at Place Value, then addition and subtraction.

 

English - We start this half term by focusing upon writing super sentences.

 

To help us to remember and make links in the things we are learning, we use knowledge organisers.

These are the ones we are using this half term.

We love reading stories. So far this year, we have read the following books:
Our new book is all about a big, hairy Yeti, who kidnaps a little girl. We are looking forward to seeing how she survives life in the wild.
We have started to make our Stone Age spears. The sawing was hard work but we are pleased with our work.
In the outdoor area this week, we used stones to build houses for the fairies to come and visit. There was even an Iron Age stone circle made. Great building work!
In Maths, we practise our times tables daily. We are focusing on recall of the 2, 5 and 10 times table at the moment. Try this page to practise at home too. 

English

Currently, we are writing sentences using conjunctions such as For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet or So to extend our sentences.  We use the mnemonic FANBOYS to help us to remember these.

Writing

We are learning to write sentences using FANBOYS to describe the key events in the video "Gus".  Follow the link to watch the video on You Tube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJmA_UyfZLQ

 

We have been finding out about the Stone Age in history. They made their tools using stone and other natural materials. We made some models of some of the tools.
We have been learning about the way that prehistoric people recorded information about their daily life by creating cave paintings.
