Our project this term will be 'Beneath the Sea'. This is a 'Science and Technology' topic, as we will be focusing on exploring into relationships between living things, their habitats and their life cycles. We will also be making decisions individually and collectively of which will be influenced by a range of factors. This will help us to look buy and look after our class fish once we have collated all the relevant information through our learning zones.
Why not explore the ocean through the following websites?
In Literacy, we will be looking at the picture book named 'Flotsam' by David Wiesner. This is a wordless picture book about a boy that finds a mysterious box washed up on the beach. When he picks up the box, he realises that it's a very old camera with the words "Melville underwater camera" written in the front. The boy opens the boxed-shaped camera and reveals old photographs stored in the inside. We will be using this story to develop our language skills, both collaboratively and individually. We will also be improving our writing skills by selecting a character and writing a character description on them using our structure strips. Once we have collated all the research possible, we will then progress onto writing a debate and then conducting this in the classroom setting amongst our peers.
This term we will be looking at 'Number and Place Value.' We will be focusing on reading and writing numbers to 1,000,000 ordering and comparing items up to £1000 and estimating by rounding to the nearest 10, 100, 1,000 and 10,000. We will also be focusing on addition regarding both whole number and decimals and then selecting an appropriate mental or written strategy to solve addition problems. This will then result in us being able to use inverse operations to check our answers.
Throughout the term, we will continue use mental strategies to recall multiplication tables for 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,10, 11 and 12 through continuous games and inventive ways to ensure that we can consolidate these by the end of the year.
