Welcome to term 2!
This term our enquiry question is still 'Time travellers - What will we find?' but we will be travelling back in time even further. We will be learning about the 1666 Great Fire of London. Click here for the terms topic web.
During English this term we will be focussing on the story 'Toby and the Great Fire of London.' We will use the story to inspire our descriptive writing and also write diary entries in role as some of the characters. We will also be writing newspaper articles using the information we learn in our history lessons. This term we will also recap different forms of punctuation, conjunctions, commas in a list and sentences types, as well as introducing some new grammar.
Our author this term is still Roger Hargreaves, who wrote the Mr Men and Little Miss book series. Feel free to bring in any books by Hargreaves that you may have at home.
In Maths we will be developing our understanding of addition and subtractions. This will include recognising the inverse relationship between adding and subtracting, adding more than one thing at a time and applying this learning in worded problems. We will then move on to multiplication and division before recapping shape and measurement.
Our science lessons will continue to focus on identifying and discussing the uses of everyday materials, includeing some scientific investigations.
Keep up the great work!
