I’M AN EVACUEE…
get me out of here
Autumn 2 2018
In the second Autumn term, we will be learning lots about the past with a special focus on World War 2 and what life was like in the past, compared to what it is like now.
In literacy this half term, we will begin with a poetry unit which focuses on Remembrance Day. We'll be looking at rhyming patterns and couplets and what makes a good performance. Hopefully, we will be able to perform in the Remembrance Assembly. We will then be learning how to write a recount based on our planned trip to Portland Basin. Our book of inspiration this term will be 'Penguins Can't Fly'. From this book, we will utilise our recount skills, writing a recount from the perspective of the Penguin before innovating the story to write our own making links with animals and habitats in science.
This term we will focus on addition and subtracting looking closely at adding 2 digit numbers to 2 digit numbers. We will also be developing our use and application of number bonds and our understanding of commutativity within addition and subtraction. Some of the methods we will use are...
After learning lots about the brain last half term, we will now be moving onto the next module entitled celebrate.
This module is intended to introduce:
• What the different types of character strengths are
• How children can learn to spot different strengths in themselves and others
• Which character strengths the children identify with
In this context, character strengths refer to those character traits that make us unique. We all have different characters and this is something to celebrate! This is not about what we are ‘good’ at e.g. football or maths, it is about who we are
Our history topic this term focuses around World War 2 and will cover:
Science will focus on how people survived on food rations in World War 2 and we will investigate how hard it can be to grow your own food!
We will be creating a piece of Art work based on World War 2 which continues to develop and master the skills we have learnt so far this year:
Children will also be developing the speaking and listening skills through our nativity play which will be performed in December.
