This half term our topic is 'The Glory of Nature'.
We will be enjoying the sunshine and the beauty of Spring this half term, as well as working hard to achieve our very best in all we do.
In a change to our normal storytelling approach to Literacy, we will be immersing ourselves in three short animated films this half term, with a 'nature' theme. We will be writing character and setting descriptions, recounts, mini scene descriptions, poetry and character and setting comparisons before innovating and inventing our own stories. We will also be writing newspaper reports, instructions and reports.
In R.E we will reflect on this half term's value of Forgiveness. We will also be learning about the Hindu religion; finding out how Hindus worship, who they worship and what the important festivals are and how they are celebrated.
In Science we will be investigating 'plants'. We will identify and describe the basic structure of a flowering plant; find out about what plants need to grow and describe their life cycles. We might be doing some planting and gardening ourselves too!
In Geography we will be exploring sustainability and how people can affect the environment they live in. We will look at ways to improve and sustain environments and work to develop and sustain environments and habitats within the school grounds.
Check out the photos below which show lots of the amazing things we have been doing in our learning!
