What's happening this term?
Wriggle and crawl
Our new topic this half term is ‘wriggle and crawl.’ We will be out and about on the hunt for minibeasts. We might, if we are lucky, spot the Hungry Caterpillar! Then we will take a closer look at their habitats and how they protect and camouflage themselves. Later we will be making food chains and finding out who is the predator and who is the prey.
In English we will be using a more visual approach. We will watch short animated film clips and write character studies, settings and non-chronological reports.
In maths we will look at 2D and 3D shapes recognising their properties and then comparing and sorting them. Later in the half term our focus will be fractions - recognising, finding, naming and writing 1/3, 1/4, 2/4 and 3/4 of a length, shape, set of objects or quantity. Then write simple fractions e.g. 1/2 of 6 = 3 and recognise the equivalence of 2/4 and 1/2. Just before the Easter break we will be measuring the length and the height of objects.
