What's happening this term?
Muck, mess and mixtures
Our topic this term is muck, mess and mixtures. In science we carried out an experiment to investigate what will happen when we mix different materials such as clay, shaving foam and cooking oil with water. We found out that some materials float like glitter, some dissolve like sugar and some float like the cooking oil.
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.
