Start of Term 1 (2017 - 2018)
Yellow class will be looking at what it means to eat healthy food. There will be opportunities for them to try different foods, if they wish to and to plan the menu for a party. This will culminate in a party in the classroom with party games, food they have helped to prepare and decorations just in time for Christmas. Maths and literacy lessons that link to the topic will focus around data handling and writing party invitations.
End of Term 1 (2017 - 2018)
To finish Term 1 we have had 'Dinosaur Week'. We have searched for bones, made dinosaur masks and dinosaur paintings. In Term 2 we will be working on our independence. We will be introduced to work stations that we monitor ourselves to work through our tasks and earn our rewards. Hopefully this will help us be more independent at home as well.
End of Term 2 (2017 - 2018)
Yellow Class have enjoyed looking at different foods thinking about how healthy they are and where they come from. They looked at how different materials change shape, some by bending, some by heating or cooling. Next term we are going to be reading 'Mrs Armitage on Wheels' and have a go at using the saws and glue guns to make our own cars!
End of Term 3 (2017 - 2018)
This term the children have been learning the story 'Mrs Armitage on Wheels' in Literacy. They have been retelling the story and have been looking at vehicles from around the world, testing materials for friction and waterproofing, carried out a car survey and made salt dough vehicles.
Next term they will continue working around the transport theme. Pupils will make a car out of wood in DT, learn about the first cars that were invented and carry out a study of Kandinksy.
End of Term 4 (2017 - 2018)
Next term Yellow and Orange class will both be starting a new topic together: ‘Fire, Earth, Water, Air’.
The children will learn about the amazing oceans around the world, The Great Fire of London, how plants grow and aerodynamics in planes. This will include learning about different jobs grown-ups do including firefighters, aeroplane pilots and builders. In PE they will be doing gymnastics and in ICT they will be using the Beebots. Literacy will cover different books that are related to the topic and maths will focus heavily on addition and subtraction.
End of Term 5 (2017 - 2018)
In Yellow Class this term the children have been looking at the Fire and Water components of their topic 'Fire, Water, Air and Ground'. They learnt about the Great Fire of London and created some amazing houses that they will burn at the start of Term 6. They also learnt about World Water Day and the importance of water to all living things. In Maths, the children have spent a lot of time practicing their addition and subtraction skills and have learnt a fiction and non fiction text in Literacy.
Next term they will concentrate on Air and Ground with lots of work around life cycles and their local environment.
