Term 5

Overarching question for this term:
Is there plentiful in the world?



Welcome to Term 5!


We are really excited for all of our learning ahead of us this term. Our theme is 'Sow, Grow, Hello' and we will be exploring plants, the weather and using natural objects around us to support with our art learning.


In Science, we will be learning about Plants. We will explore a variety of common wild garden plants including deciduous and evergreen trees. We will identify structures of plants and explore how they change overtime through observational comparisons and contrasts.


In Geography, we are going to explore the weather. We will be identifying the seasonal and daily weather patterns in the United Kingdom, build on our knowledge of seasons and know and recognise weather symbols. We will also be presenting our own weather forecast to display our geography learning!


We will be print making in Art. We are going to create repeating patterns in print, experiment with different objects and take rubbings from a range of interesting surfaces. 


RE this term will be recognising Places of Worship and being able to explain the use of features and symbols in places of worship, using our previous knowledge of RE learning.


We will also be developing our computer skills and learning how to play the ocarina in Music. In PSHE we are going to explore work and money.


We will be reading Jack and the Beanstalk as our traditional tale and Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers will be our class novel.


We are really looking forward to yet another amazing term together full of learning, smiles and fun! 



We were lucky enough to have a tennis taster day! We enjoyed learning about the elements of playing tennis. We used our core value 'Resilience' the most in this lesson. 




This week we have been busy creating our prints of flowers. We collected natural objects and brought them in to the classroom. We carefully created rubbings and prints with paint. 



We are very excited today as we have all planted our very own seed! We reflected on our collective worship 'Seeds of Hope' and carefully planted our own. We created an observational drawing of our plants and are excited to watch them grow! 



This week we have explored measuring in Maths. We have looked at measuring height, mass, volume and capacity. We enjoyed using the scales to see which objects were heavier and lighter.
