Welcome to 2 Mars!
Summer Term 2018
Welcome to the Summer Term and we hope you and your child are looking forward to another great term of learning!
This term our history topic will be 'People from the Past'. We will start our learning by thinking about what makes someone important. We then move on to look at some significant individuals in history and the impact they had. The highlight of this topic is when the class will come dressed as someone from the past. More details will be given about this before half term.
In Science, our topic will be 'Plants'. In this unit children have the opportunity to closely study plants and trees in the natural environment, taking measurements and making observational drawings. Children begin to learn about plants we eat, and understand that farming involves creating the right conditions for food crops to grow. We will try to grow a plant from a seed without any soil. Look closely at our window and you might see how they are getting on!
In English, we will start be writing our own quest stories based on 'Lost and Found'. We will then move onto recounts of our visit to St Andrew's Church. We will then write poems based on 'Ten things found in a wizard's pocket'. We will link our writing to our topic to include diary entries and letters that people from the past could have written.
In Maths, we look to consolidate all of our learning over the last two terms. We will look at applying our knowledge to word problems and reasoning questions. We will continue with our times tables and hope that some will move on to division tables.
We are really looking forward to a final term with the class, and we hope you and your child are too!
