Term 6

Welcome back!

We hope you had a fantastic half term holiday and enjoyed spending time with your families.  


This term we shall be learning all about the 'Titanic' in our History lessons which I am sure the children are really going to enjoy. Science continues learning more about plants and trees and observing how our seeds have grown since we planted them in term 5. In Maths we continue our learning of the place value of numbers but we extend  this to numbers up to 100, we also look at measurement, money and time. PE lessons will take place every Tuesday and Friday afternoon so please can all children have the correct PE kit in school.  With the weather improving, please can I ask children come into school with plenty of water and a sun hat to protect them when playing outside


 Art - Continuing our painting from Term 5, the children have been making tints of a colour, using different sized brushes to create texture and adding detail to flowers - some amazing artwork!


Maths - We have started this term off with place value 50-100. The children have been using lots of manipulatives to identify the tens and ones within a number


PE - We have been building on our throwing and catching skills in order to play team games using striking and fielding.


Science - We have been learning about the different parts of a plant this week, outside we looked at some of the plants we had planted earlier in the term and used these to identify roots, stems, leaves and petals. We talked about how these look different in each plant.
