Welcome to the Terrific Tigers!
Our topic for this half term is 'We are Britain'. During literacy, we will be reading stories and poetry by famous British authors and poets and will write stories based around famous characters from British classics, like Paddington Bear and Winnie-the-Pooh.
'We are Britain' will be linked to our Geography and History curriculum, finding out about the famous cities and landmarks in our country, and famous British people.
R.E. involves discussion and recording about Belonging - to a family, school, club or country.
Numeracy will focus on place value and addition and subtraction, as well as an understanding of shape, space and measures.
Our Science topic is "Everyday Materials". We will investigate the materials we can find at school and at home and what they are used for and how useful they are. We will use our information to design, make and test our own umbrella!
In Art, we will be using a range of materials to develop skills in using colour, line, pattern and texture. We will also look at the work of famous artists.
Our topic for the second half of the term will be 'Pole to Pole'. Our literacy work will be based around the story 'Poles Apart'. We will be using non-fiction books to help us find out about the animals in the story. We will be writing stories, poems, postcards and lists, as well as investigating the features of non-fiction texts and doing our own information writing.
'Poles Apart' will also be linked to our Geography curriculum, through fact finding about places in the story and locating places on a world map.
During Art sessions, the children will work in groups to produce an igloo out of papier mache, which they will then paint in tones of a colour to demonstrate their understanding of colour mixing.
In Numeracy, we will continue with our learning and understanding of numbers, shapes, space and measure and telling the time.
In Science, we will continue with our investigation of 'Everyday Materials', moving onto finding out about 'Light'.
Add to this the Christmas fair, pantomime, parties and Nativity plays, it is going to be another very busy half term!
