Whittlebury Class 2, Mr Darley
How are we already at the beginning of the summer term? We have had such an amazing year already and achieved so much!
We have a history focus this term which will explore our local history. We will be investigating the life of Elizabeth Woodville using our history skills, and we will also compare her life to the life of Queen Elizabeth II. We will be improving our understanding of chronology by creating timelines.
Our explanation work last term produced some incredible writing from the children really grasping how to make their work 'sound' like an explanation. This term, we are going to continue to hone our non-fiction writing skills by exploring persuasion. We are going to use fairy tale characters as inspiration to practice this style of writing, and we will hopefully produce some fabulously persuasive speeches to convince our audience of a particular point of view.
In maths, both year groups will continue to use Maths No Problem focusing on Graphs, Fractions, Money and Measurement.
In RE, we will be exploring The Kingdom Of God. We will look at what the Kingdom of God means to Christians and deepen our understanding of Pentecost.
Our topic this term in science, is plants. We will be looking at the parts and functions of plants and then use this information to help us set up and carry out investigations.
We will continue to use Class Dojo to keep you all up-to-date with all of our learning, and to reward the children for their learning and their behaviour!
You are of course, as always, welcome to pop in with any questions or queries.
Our topic map for the half-term ahead can be found below.
