Welcome back! We hope you had a fantastic half term and are now feeling ready for the last half term of the year!
This half term our project is Land Ahoy. We’ll visit a boat yard, river or harbour to find out about boats and ships of all shapes and sizes. Our science skills will help us to understand how boats float and we’ll design and make model ships using a variety of materials. We’ll study paintings of boats and draw pictures of our own. Our map reading skills will help us to identify and locate buried treasure, and we’ll learn about different seas. Stories of pirates will inspire us to make pirate flags, treasure maps and fact files. We’ll even find out how to talk and sing like a pirate!
For this half term in maths, we will be revisiting addition and subtraction with some children adding and subtracting one from a group and we will also revisit geometry, familiarising ourselves with common 2D shapes. Some children will continue with number and place value of numbers up to 100 and above, and focusing on their 10 times tables.
All the children will continue to work through the Read Write inc scheme of work, working hard to develop their reading and writing skills.
The Lobsters team! Dom, Claire, Jordan, Aliyah, Adele, Emma and Glenys
