Overview of Summer 2
This academic year we are using a new scheme called 'Power Maths' which develops mastery of mathematical strategies and understanding. This half-term we are focusing on Fractions and continuing to develop times-tables and division facts to help children calculate and solve various problems.
Children will be creating a variety of text types using the book 'Traction Man meets Turbodog' by Mini Grey as their inspiration. In particular, there will be a focus on the use of grammar and expression by the author, and how the children can use such grammatical formation in their writing with a focus on the genre of comic strips. In addition to this, children will once again be learning spellings using our spelling scheme (Read, Write, Ink), and will be developing their handwriting frequently.
Focusing on habitats - making cross-curricular links and learning about how humans and animals adapt and survive in the environments in which they exist!
Exploring the Vikings and the impact they had on history and the way we live today!
Children will be learning about and participating in athletics activities whilst developing the skills that enable them to perform efficiently both individually and as part of a larger group or team!
This half term the children will be looking at the religious beliefs of various religions and cultures, as well as discussing things that are important in their own lives.
My Happy Mind
This scheme has a focus on promoting children's well-being and provides them with strategies to deal with stress, and worries that occur in their everyday lives. Children will also learn about how their brain works and develop their understanding of neuroscience!
Mrs Green will lead children this year during music lessons, and over the course of this term will be engaging the children by sharing the infectious sounds of the violin! This term children will be using various methods to play and develop their skills with the instrument and perform for an audience!
This term children will be using the program 'garage band' to create their own music and graphic designs!
Linked to our Viking topic, children will have opportunities to design, make and create a range of artistic materials..
