In Literacy, we will focus on ‘Stories by the Same Author’ and non-chronological reports.
We will read stories such as ‘The Pirate Next Door,’ The Jolly Rodger’ and ‘The Pirate Cruncher’ by Jonny Duddle.
In each unit children will be immersed in the reading of each genre, focusing on the content of the text, and then they will write their own version of each.
In Maths, we will understand and use vocabulary associated with position, direction and movement.
We will develop our understanding on right angles, time, number and place value, mental addition and subtraction, 2-D and 3-D shape and measuring.
Are you ready to explore? In this new and exciting topic the children will develop their understanding of what it means to be an explorer. We will delve into the past and learn about the famous explorer Christopher Columbus. We will learn about the life of Christopher Columbus and his voyages. In Geography, we will name and locate the world’s seven continents and five oceans. We will explore the equipment used by Christopher Columbus and compare it to modern day exploring equipment.
