Summer 2

  Look out for the weekly newsletter on Class Dojo. 

 

This half term, our topic is 'Would you rather be a pirate or a landlubber?' We will be focusing on several different stories to explore the theme of pirates. We will also be finding out about different modes of transport and comparing them to transport in the past. Through the story of The Naughty Bus, we will compare Plymouth to London. Using photographs and first hand experiences, we will look at how our local area has changed through time.

Pirate clipart and animations - ClipartixIn our RWINc sessions we will continue to learn new sounds, whilst consolidating those already taught. We will develop our ability to read different words and short stories as well as writing words and sentences. We will then use this knowledge outside of RWINc sessions.

 

In our daily Maths sessions we will focus on exploring patterns within number.  We will compose and decompose shapes, recognising that shapes can have other shapes within them. We will also explore capacity, sorting and time.

 

In our RE sessions we will be exploring the themes of 'Reconciliation' and 'Universal Church.' We will answer the questions, 'Is it good to have friends?' and 'What makes our world so wonderful?'
