Magnolias 2023/24!

Spring 1 - Lost in Space

Spring 1

 

We are writers and readers!

In our writing lessons, we will be using Orion Lost to inspire 2 pieces of writing. The first is a part of a science fiction story, where our character is lost in space. In these stories we will be using prepositional phrases and relative clauses to add description. The second unit is to write a biography of an astronaut, with a focus on formal language and modal verbs.

 

In our shared reading lessons, we will be developing our skills by reading and understanding texts across a range of genres - both fiction and non-fiction. Our main focus will be on understanding vocabulary and improving our inference and retrieval skills.

Please make sure you are still reading 3 or more times a week!

 

We are mathematicians!

In our maths lessons this half-term, we will be learning about different methods for multiplication and division.

These include partitioning, column method (expanded and short) and the bus stop method for division.

Practising your times tables regularly will really support this!

 

We are historians, artists, scientists and athletes!

Geography – a study of the local area and how it has changed over time.

Art – Develop and refine Painting skills..

Science- Earth and Space!.

PE- gymnastics, dance and movement.

We are writers

We are mathematicians

In our maths lessons this half-term, we will be learning about multiples, factors and prime numbers.

This will increase our super number knowledge and allow us to understand times tables, multiplication and division even deeper.

 

We are Historians, Artists, Scientists and athletes 

 

In History are are diving into the world of the Ancient Greeks! We will be learning how to study artefacts, how they impacted our world today and what life was like for them.

Our Art lessons will be all about sculpture. As well as looking at different forms of sculpture and practicing our sculpture skills, we will be making our own Greek sculpture using recycled materials!

In science, our topic is working scientifically, where we will be practicing and consolidating all the skills needed to become a brilliant scientist.

Our PE lessons will be based on striking and fielding games - PE is Mondays and Thursdays this half term :)
