Spring term coverage
This term our whole school theme is 'Ship Ahoy' and we have created a jungle, desert island and pirate ship for our immersive environment.
Literacy - In Literacy the children will create wanted posters for a pirate, fiction writing focusing on Pirate Pete, Pirates Love Underpants and Captain Jack and the Pirates. They will write a diary entry imagining they are on a boat sailing around the world, write a postcard home, a letter home and a set of instructions.
Numeracy - In Numeracy the children will cover a range of activities involving skills such as multiplication, division and improving their mental calculations. Along with money, position and direction, capacity, days of the week and months of the year.
Computing - In Computing the children will be using digital research as well as building on their word processing skills. They will continue to develop their awareness of e-safety and how they can keep themselves safe online. The children will continue to work with our new robots named Dash and will program them to get to different locations.
Science - The children will look at seasonal change and what happens throughout the year. They will take part in a variety of investigations such as 'What can float?' They will name and sort a range of materials based on their properties. Along with plants and labelling a plant and what they need to grow.
PSHCE - The children will be focusing on our school values of communication and achievement. They will focus on communication on a boat and what explorers achieved and what can you achieve. Along with a healthy diet and right and wrong.
Art and design - The children will be developing their skills in colour, line and shape. Along with looking at a famous artist 'Van Gogh' and his art work, we will then create a scene and pirate ship in the style of Van Gogh. In Design Technology we will be designing, making and evaluating our own ship.
Music - The children will be focusing on exploring instruments and using symbols. The children will explore the different sounds the instruments make and compose their own pieces of music using the symbols. The children will also learn and perform sea shanties.
PE - The children will be covering different units based on gymnastics and dance.
History - The children will learn about real life pirates and explorers, what their life was like and how travel has changed over time.
RE - We will focus on why we are all special and different religious ceremonies. We will look at Easter and Chinese New Year.
