In addition to this outdoor PE lesson, we will be having indoor PE on Thursdays. Children will need to wear black shorts and a white T-shirt for this lesson. On both occasions they need to come into school wearing their kit.
Our topics this half term are Panic on Pudding Lane and Choco-tastic! We start the first topic looking at the Great Fire of London in 1666 using role-play, music and video clips. We link our literacy, art, science, geography and history work closely, by focusing on life during the time of the fire (17th century).
After the half term holiday, we start our new topic, which centres around Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. In literacy, the children learn about components of stories, such as, story settings and character descriptions before writing their very own chapter! As an inspirational beginning to this topic, we watch a film version of the story, which the children thoroughly enjoy.
The children follow the National Curriculum 2014 in preparation for their SATs in May. Areas of focus are place value, the four operations (including mental strategies and written methods), shape, money, time, fractions, measurement and problem solving.
As part of the PE curriculum, the children take part in multi-sports lessons with Mr Fewell and complete a dance unit. In RE, the children learn about Judaism, Sikhism and Christianity. Through ICT, the children learn about e-safety (staying safe online) and searching the internet safely. Our design and technology lessons enable the children to enjoy designing and creating a rat out of old socks and other materials! Finally, our science topics are ‘uses of everyday materials’ and ‘plants’.
