Spring 2 curriculum

 

Maths

Our maths learning will focus on mass, length, and picture graphs whilst continuing to consolidate the use of the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). 

We will also be using our knowledge of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to solve simple word problems.

Daily basic facts practice will focus on quick recall of number bonds to 20 and our 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

You can use the Numbots programme to support your child's basic fact knowledge.

 

Reading 

We will be reading a range of fiction and non fiction texts, continuing to focus on reading fluently with expression. Children will be reading ‘The First Hippo on the Moon’ to support their understanding of the ambition and drive significant individuals have to reach their goals. As well as using books such as the stories of 'Malala and Iqbal' to research the lives of famous people through history.

     

 

Please read with your child every day. You can also use the Reading Eggs programme to support your children’s learning and visit Manor Park Library for a greater range of books.

Remember to record your child’s reading in their R@Homebook. This includes books you read to them. Please talk to your child about what they are reading and remember, reading the same book over and over helps children to develop confidence and fluency in reading.

 Writing

Children will be learning how to write recounts, firstly for themselves and then significant others in the form of diary entries, developing lots of skills including:

  • Writing in first person as someone else
  • Showing empathy for other characters and describing their feelings 
  • Refining sentence structure and punctuation.

History

Through our topic ‘Significant Individuals’ we will be learning about the lives of Neil Armstrong, Malala Yousafzai, Mary Seacole and Iqbal Masih. We will be learning the following skills

  • To study events and people from beyond living memory.
  • To be able to sort and/or sequence historical events on a timeline.
  • To ask and answer historical questions based on their observations and experience.
  • To use different sources of information e.g. artefacts, stories and other accounts.
  • To learn about and describe significant historical events, people and places.
  • To know about the lives of significant individuals and how they have contributed to national and international achievements.

 

Art

 Through our topic ‘Printing’ we will be creating scenes of the natural environment. We will be learning:

  • To create their own printing stamps e.g. using polystyrene tiles.
  • To explore and create their own patterns, using pressing, rubbing and stamping techniques.
  • To use printing to represent the natural environment.

 

PSHE
