Welcome to 2 Mars!
Spring Term 2018
Welcome to the Spring Term and we hope you and your child are looking forward to another great term of learning!
This term our geography topic will be 'Our World'. We will start our learning by thinking how we belong in the world and then learn about the different countries make up the United Kingdom. Our journey will continue around the world where we will learn about a different country in each continent.
In Science, our topic will be 'Uses of Everyday Materials' where we will learn about the uses of materials including wood, plastic, metal , glass, brick, paper and cardboard. We will compare the suitability of different materials for different purpose. We will also explore how objects made of some everyday materials can change shape and how the recycling process is able to reuse some everyday materials numerous times.
In English, we will start be writing our own fantasy stories based on 'George and the Dragon'. We will continue the dragon theme by reading instructions about how to catch a dragon before writing our own. Then we will write reports about different dragons.
In Maths, we will be starting off with multiplication and will begin learning our times tables. We will then look at the link between multiplication and division. After this we will be carrying out lots of work to do with 2d and 3d shapes.
We are really looking forward to a great year with the class, and we hope you and your child are too!
