This Term's Learning...

​​Literacy​​

To begin this term children will continue with Read, Write Inc. We will still study a class text altogether. Our first text is 'Lila and the secret of Rain.' We will then look at 'The Leopard's Drum'.

Science

Children will be looking at living things​​ and their habitats. Children will work towards answering the question, 'Why would a dinosaur not make a good pet?' We will be heading to Chester Zoo for a closer look at animals and their habitats!

Art

Children will be looking at an African artist called Martin Bulinya and recreating his work. 

His work looks at African landscape using bright colours and dark figures. We will recreate this using charcoal and pastels.

​R.E
This term we will be focusing on Christianity. Our first question  for the first half of the term is, 'Is it possible to be kind to everyone all of the time?' For this we will look at The Good Samaritan. Next, we will work together to answer the topic question 'Why did God give Jesus to the world?'
