English 

Our topic this term is 'Ahoy there! - Explorers'. It will be cross curricular with English being based around narrative writing where we will plan and write a sequence to ‘Lost and found’, poetry linked to the Antarctic and information writing about penguins. We are continuing to use our Read Write Inc programme to develop our fluency skills in Reading. A big focus will be on comprehension, using the text to support our understanding and help us to answer questions. Please continue to read with your child at home. School expectation is thta every child reads for at least 10 minutes every evening.

Topic

As we find out about the famous explorers, we will name and locate the five oceans of the world and the seven continents in Geography. In Art, we will develop our ability to use colour, pattern and texture to create a self portrait. In Computing, we will use simple algorithms to move a sprite in order to find the buried treasure.
